In Python django, if I want the regex to detect from 6 characters to infinity, [\ w -] {6, infinite} what is the quantifier?

url(r'^(?P<foo>[\w-]{6, })/$', view)

In django if I want the regex to detect from 6 characters to infinity, {6, infinito} , do I leave it blank, or how should I express it?

This way it works but I'm not sure ...

6 or more alphanumerics, _ and / or -

  • The {6,} quantifier goes without spaces, with nothing, in the 2nd parameter.
  • It is unnecessary to use the group (?P<foo> ... ) in this case, although it does not affect the result.
  • Delimiters like / are not used in Python.
  • It is good practice to include the - script as the first character within a character class.


import re
# re es el módulo necesario para usar expresiones regulares

regex = r'^[-\w]{6,}$'
texto = 'abc123'

if, texto):
    print('No coincide')

Demo: link

You can call:

  • () that searches for a match anywhere in the string.'^[-\w]{6,}$', str)
  • re.fullmatch () that searches only matches all the string.

    re.fullmatch(r'[-\w]{6,}', str)
