Sometimes you have to serve null files. This quick hacky generic view lets you do that. The best example of that is robots.txt, I want my robots.txt to always be empty, at least for now.

The other example would be favicon.ico, but that's more often used to actually fill a purpose.

nullFile = lambda r: HttpResponse()

# As you might've figured out, you use it in urls.py with:
# (r'myRegex', 'some.module.nullFile'),
