Easily set a localized timezone for users

Documentation

The full documentation is at https://awesome-django-timezones.readthedocs.io.

Quickstart

Install Awesome Django Timezones:

pip install awesome-django-timezones

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'awesome_django_timezones',
    ...
)

Add DjangoTimezonesMiddleware to your MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    ...
    'awesome_django_timezones.middleware.TimezonesMiddleware',
    ...
)

Add js/awesome_django_timezones.js to your base template

<script src="{% static 'awesome_django_timezones/js/awesome_django_timezones.js' %}"></script>

(Optional) If you need Django to be timezone aware on the Admin page, you will have to extend the Admin base.html in your_project/templates/admin/base.html

{% extends 'admin/base.html' %}
{% load static %}

{% block footer %}
  {{ block.super }}

  <script src="{% static 'js/awesome_django_timezones.js' %}"></script>

{% endblock %}

Features

  • Provides an accurate method of determining the an end user’s timezone and activating that timezone in Django.
  • Uses client side, JavaScript detection for the most accurate method of determining a timezone.
    • Uses the widely supported, native Intl JavaScript library to detect the client’s timezone. This library is not currently implemented for IE11.
  • Falls back to server side timezone detection via an IP API.
    • Fall back is provided for IE11 clients or clients with JavaScript disabled.
    • Relies on third-party IP API lookups by https://ipapi.co. Consider purchasing a plan if you need more than 30k IP lookups/month or if you need support (no affiliation).
  • Set a fallback timezone to always use in case a timezone can’t be found with AWESOME_TZ_DEFAULT_TZ in your settings.py. (Be sure to use the “TZ database name” column from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones)
