Keep track of when a user has been last seen

Project Description

Keep trak of when a user has been last seen on a website. The last seen time is kept on the database

The app is ready for django 1.5, it uses the AUTH_USER_MODEL setting to get the user model,

Installation

  1. Install with pip install django-last-seen" or add "last_seen" directory to your Python path.
  2. Add "last_seen" to the INSTALLED_APPS tuple found in your settings file.
  3. Add ‘last_seen.middleware.LastSeenMiddleWare’ to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES tuple found in your settings file.

LastSeen.object.when(user=user, module='forum')

from last_seen.model import LastSeen

# save with a special module
LastSeen.object.when(user=user, module='forum')

Then to get the data:

from last_seen.model import LastSeen

# user last seen on any part of the site
seen = LastSeen.object.when(user=user)

# user last seen on a module
seen = LastSeen.object.when(user=user, module='forum')
