Project description


Django-View-Limiter is a django app, which limit the time of every user to visit apis mainly.
Also you can limit the page view of apis directly.


Django-View-Limiter is best installed via PyPI. To install the latest version, run:

### Limit directly

You can call the limiter decorator directly to wrap your view function like that.

from django.shortcuts import HttpResponse
from apilimiter.decorators import limiter

def index(request):
return HttpResponse("decorators test")

If you view this api more than 5 times, it will return the 403 page.

### Limit directly with (...,limit_redirect='')

Also you can define the * limit_redirect='' * to return a special url.
**limit_redirect** can be a view


from django.shortcuts import HttpResponse
from apilimiter.decorators import limiter

@limiter(limit_key='',limit_time=5, limit_redirect='/myapp/wrong')
def index(request):
return HttpResponse("decorators test")

def wrong(request):
return HttpResponse("You can view the page any more!")


from django.conf.urls import url, include
from myapp import views

urlpatterns = [
url(r'^$', views.index),
url(r'^wrong$', views.wrong),
url(r'^mixin$', views.MyView.as_view()),

### Limit with Mixin

from django.views.generic import View
from apilimiter.mixin import LimiterMixin
from django.shortcuts import HttpResponse

class MyView(LimiterMixin, View):
limit_time = 5
limit_key = ''
limit_redirect = ''

def get(self, request):
