Tracebacks on unexpected keyword parameters or NOT ?

Anonymous created an issue

The problem comes when you make queryes like localhost/somepage?var=value and you do not have a var parameter on the somepage method. Suppose you have lots of methods like that and you do not want to let tracebacks pop out just by adding a query parameter. So you have to add a **keywords parameter on all those methods.

That is a bit uncosistent, so i'm thinking of a config parameter to do the trick. Ofcourse you can make a filter and check what kind of traceback it is and suppress it but that's just ugly.

Any toughts on this?

    Well this is up to the application developer to handle such cases by trapping the error and serving whatever needs to be served. You could define a decorator that makes sure the signature of your handler is respected and either dump the useless parameters or raises your own error message.

    I think we ought to close this issue.
