Middleware that makes the current request available from anywhere.
- crequest takes care of current request in silent way.
- crequest will bring you current request object of your Django application from anywhere in your code.
django-crequest is available on http://pypi.python.org/pypi/django-crequest So it can be installed it by pip:
$ python pip install django-crequest
Or you can grab the latest version tarball and
$ python setup.py install
To enable django-crequest in your project
- Add crequest to INSTALLED_APPS in your settings.py
- Add crequest.middleware.CrequestMiddleware to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES after the authentication and session middleware.
django-crequest currently can be run on multiple python versions:
- Python 2
- Python 3
First import the crequest’s middleware:
from crequest.middleware import CrequestMiddleware
Get the current request ;):
current_request = CrequestMiddleware.get_request()
Set the current request in UnKnown situations:
Return iam_request if there is no current request:
And finally delete:
The middleware automatically sets/deletes the current request for HTTP requests. For other uses (management commands, scripts), you will need to do this yourself.
