If you did tried to use reverse function to set success_url in class based generic views and you have got an exception, this helper function may help.

Put this snipped in some file, for example utils.py and import this function.

from django.utils.functional import lazy
from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse

# Workaround for using reverse with success_url in class based generic views
# because direct usage of it throws an exception.
reverse_lazy = lambda name=None, *args : lazy(reverse, str)(name, args=args)

Until Django 1.4 is released and reverse_lazy is included in Django, this snippet does the trick.
