Beefier Cache-Control HTTP headers created by @never_cache decorator in Django.

Project description

django-beefycachecontrol is a Django middleware that smacks misbehaving upstream caches into submission with beefier anti-cache HTTP headers.

Normally, when a view is decorated with @never_cache:

@never_cache
def my_view(request):
    ...

The resulting HTTP headers (among other things) include:

Cache-Control       max-age=0

While this should be sufficient to prevent the response from being cached upstream, but there may be circumstances where this is not enough. Enter django-beefiercachecontrol!

With BeefyCacheControlMiddleware enabled, these HTTP headers become:

Cache-Control       max-age=0, no-cache, no-store

Cache that and you’d be arrested by the internet cops!

Installation

  1. easy_install django-beefycachecontrol or pip install django-beefycachecontrol
  2. Add beefycachecontrol to your INSTALLED_APPS
  3. In settings.py add 'beefycachecontrol.middleware.BeefyCacheControlMiddleware' to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES

Usage

django-beefycachecontrol is a middleware. Once it is enabled, there is nothing more to do. It simply fixes up your no-cache related HTTP headers.
