A backend for Django and Postgres that sets up a readonly connection

Project Description

A readonly database backend for Django and PostgreSQL. It does this by setting the connection to “readonly”.

Usage

To configure a read-only database connection, add an entry to your DATABASES setting that uses django_postgres_readonly as the engine:

DATABASES = {
    'default': {
        'NAME': 'my_django_db',
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.postgresql',
        'USER': 'my_db_user',
        'PASSWORD': 'my_password'
    },
    'readonly': {
        'NAME': 'my_django_db',
        'ENGINE': 'django_postgres_readonly',
        'USER': 'my_db_user',
        'PASSWORD': 'my_password'
    }
}

Caveats

This backend is not meant to provide security against willful bad actors. Its main reason of existence is to protect you against your own mistakes.

If you need secure way for read-only connections, you should probably look into creating a separate user and grant it SELECT rights only.
