A Django app enabling cross-origin resource sharing in views.

Project description

django-cross-origin is a Django app enabling cross-origin resource sharing in views.


  • Enable CORS on Django class-based generic views with a simple mixin.
  • Full customization of all CORS headers via accessor override.


  1. Checkout the latest django-cross-origin release and copy or symlink the cross_origin directory into your PYTHONPATH. If using pip, run pip install django-cross-origin.
  2. Add 'cross_origin' to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.


To enable CORS on a Django class-based view, simply mixin the cross_origin.views.AccessControlMixin to your view:

from django.views import generic
from cross_origin.views import AccessControlMixin

class YourView(AccessControlMixin, generic.TemplateView):

    """Your view code here!"""

All CORS response headers can be customized by overriding accessor methods on your view. For a complete list of available accessors, see the source code for AccessControlMixin.
