Adds some common health check endpoints (ping, time, status)

Project Description


Django-Health-Checks is Django plugin which adds a few health check endpoints (ping, time, and status) to the Django project.

Add health_checks to your INSTALLED_APPS

INSTALLED_APPS += ('health_checks',)

Add health_checks urls

import health_checks

urlpatterns += [
    url('r^', include('health_checks.urls')),

Add some custom status jobs

from health_checks import status_job

@status_job(name="PostgreSQL", timeout=5)
def postgresql():
    # Perform a ping/query to Postgres

def facebook
    # Ping some Facebook service.
You now have the below endpoints:
  • /ping/ (returns a 200 “pong”)

  • /time/

      "epoch": 1.463770977e+09,
      "local": "2016-05-20T19:02:57.558686471Z",

      "utc": "2016-05-20T19:02:57.558686471Z",
      "zone": "UTC"
  • /status/

      "endpoints": [

          "endpoint": "PostgreSQL"
        }, {
