Project description

A Django middleware to restrict the access to the Django admin based on incoming IPs


  • Python >= 3.4
  • Django >= 1.9
  • django-ipware=>2,<3


First install the package:

$ pip install django-admin-ip-restrictor

Then add the middleware to your settings:

# Django 1.10+

# Django 1.9

Set these variables in your to control who has access to the admin (IPV4 and IPV6 can be mixed):


Use RESTRICTED_APP_NAMES to restrict the access to more apps. Admin app is always included.

If using environment variables make sure that the variables receive the right type of value. django-admin-ip-restrictor automatically converts the following formats:

$ export RESTRICT_ADMIN='true'
$ export ALLOWED_ADMIN_IPS=',::1'
$ export ALLOWED_ADMIN_IP_RANGES=',::/1'
$ export RESTRICTED_APP_NAMES='wagtail_admin,foo'

For RESTRICT_ADMIN also these values can be used: True, 1, false, False, 0
