Allows view code to exit early and return a given HttpResponse by raising an exception

Project description



  • pip install django_early_return
  • add 'django_early_return.EarlyReturnMiddleware' to MIDDLEWARE in your settings
  • optionally, add 'django_early_return' to INSTALLED_APPS, if you want to run our tests when executing python test


Any view code (or middleware code, if that middleware is installed after EarlyReturnMiddleware) can now instantiate EarlyReturn with any HttpResponse, and that response will be returned to the user:

    if not request.user.has_perm('my_app.some_permission'):
        raise django_early_return.EarlyReturn(http.HttpResponseForbidden())

For code in helper functions/middleware/etc., this is often more convenient than passing a response back to the actual view code.
