Destroy the performance of your site (for testing reasons!) with django-latency!

Project Description

django-latency is a django application that only contains middleware to simulate network latency on your local machine. It causes your views to take several seconds to return.

This helps you identify client-side code that relies on low-latency server side code, which is generally an anti-pattern.

Like a runner training with weighted shoes, django-latency lets you feel the pain of client-server dependencies.

Set Up

Setting up django-latency is easy. After it is installed in your environemnt and on your path, simply add the middleware class to your MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES list:


django-latency optionally accepts a settings variable called LATENCY_MIDDLEWARE. Currently, LATENCY_MIDDLEWARE is a dictionary whose only key is “WAIT_TIME,” a floating point value.

For example:

    'WAIT_TIME': 5.0
