Description

3 years ago
The ecosystem pages used to be real views. Then most of them were moved to MDN, so we removed the views+templates and replaced the views with redirects:

    https://github.com/mozilla/zamboni/blob/master/mkt/ecosystem/urls.py

We should instead link directly to the external link so the user doesn't have to follow a redirect (not to mention the other redirects that MDN adds for setting the user's locale, etc.).

Because it's not possible with Django's `conf.urls` package to have external URLs defined in `urls.py`, we'd have to either create a custom `external_url` helper function (made available via a template context processor), enhance the existing `url` helper function, or just hardcode the URLs directly in the templates.
