A Django+Djangae app to collect session and access metrics.

Project description

This package installs models and middleware used to simplify user tracking across sessions and correlate access to resources to the user requesting such access.

Some of the tools in this project assume you are running in a non-relational environment (so far only Google App Engine is supported) for your views of interest. As such, the project depends on the djangae package. Some day perhaps I will split this into relational and non-relational sub-packages.

Quick start

The easiest way to use django-autometrics-nonrel is to use the RestFrameworkGenericViewSetAutoMetricsMixin to provide built-in recording of user retrieval of entities:

Add the project to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'autometrics_nonrel',
    ...
]

Add the middleware to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES anywhere after SessionMiddleware:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    ...
    'django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware',
    'autometrics_nonrel.middleware.UserSessionTrackingMiddleware',
    ...
)

Use the mixin on your Django REST Framework GenericViewSet (or any viewset derived from GenericViewSet) to automatically log user access to items:

from rest_framework import viewsets
from autometrics_nonrel import mixins
from myapp.models import MyModel
class MyViewSet(
        viewsets.ReadOnlyModelViewSet,
        RestFrameworkGenericViewSetAutoMetricsMixin
):
    model = MyModel
    queryset = MyModel.objects.all()
    ...
