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.

Usage

To get when a user has been last seen:

from last_seen.model import LastSeen

seen = LastSeen.object.when(user=user)

To save a last seen user without the middleware:

from last_seen.model import LastSeen

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

Middleware

The provided middleware keeps track of when an authenticated user has been last seen on the site,

If you want to keep track of a user last seen on a part of a site, you can use a special module name and use:

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')

Settings

LAST_SEEN_DEFAULT_MODULE
