Drop duplicated requests

Project description

Middleware for dropping duplicated requests

Getting Started

Just install, register the middleware and enjoy. You can adjust the timeout for duplicated requests on your file.


You need Django >= 1.9 for this to work. It may work on previous versions, but I haven’t tested it. I also tested with Django 2.0, but it may still break before it’s released.


pip install django-duprequests

Add the middleware to your MIDDLEWARE or MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES (depending on your Django version)



Also on you can set up a few variables:

DUPLICATED_REQUESTS_CACHE_NAME - the name of the cache (default value is default) DUPLICATED_REQUESTS_CACHE_TIMEOUT - cache timeout (default value is 5; in seconds) DUPLICATED_REQUESTS_COOKIE_NAME - name of the cookie set on the user’s session (default value is dj-request-id) DUPLICATED_REQUESTS_COOKIE_PREFIX - cookie prefix, combined with a random UUID to set the response cookie (default value is request-id-)

Running the tests

The test suite runs outside of a django app (it simulates a very simple one). Just run and you’re golden.
