# werkzeug.url_fix¶

werkzeug.url_fix(s, charset='utf-8')[source]

Sometimes you get an URL by a user that just isn’t a real URL because it contains unsafe characters like ‘ ‘ and so on. This function can fix some of the problems in a similar way browsers handle data entered by the user:

>>> url_fix(u'http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf (Begriffskl\xe4rung)')
'http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf%20(Begriffskl%C3%A4rung)'

Parameters: s – the string with the URL to fix. charset – The target charset for the URL if the url was given as unicode string.
