ArticleDetail's route should be /<pk>/. Be sure to actually catch a PK, not just using those characters. Give this one "detail" as a name.

Bummer! Hmm, didn't get the right view for the Article Detail URL

articles/urls.py
from django.conf.urls import url

from . import views

urlpatterns = [url(r'^$', views.ArticleList.as.view(), name= 'list'),
               url(r'^(?P<pk>\d+)/$', views.ArticleDetail.as.view(), name ='detail'),

]
articles/views.py
from django.views.generic import ListView, DetailView

from . import models

class ArticleList(ListView):
    model = models.Article

class ArticleDetail(DetailView):
    model = models.Article
articles/templates/articles/article_list.html
<h1>Articles</h1>

<ul>
</ul>
articles/templates/articles/article_detail.html
<h1>Article title</h1>
