A Django middleware that inspects the HTTP Accept headers sent by browsers.

Project Description


A Django middleware that inspects the HTTP Acept headers sent by browsers. It adds a new method to each request instance called accepts(str) which can be used to determine if a certain mimetype is accepted by the user agent that issued the request.


pip install django-accept-header


First add the middleware to your file:

    # ...

To check if the text/plain mimetype is accepted by the user agent:

def some_view(request):
    if request.accepts('text/plain'):
        # do something

The ordered list of accepted mimetypes can also be used:

def some_view(request):
    for media_type in request.accepted_types:
        # do something

See the full documentation for how to use the media types please see the full documentation.
