A simple django middleware that ensures POSTs aren't cached by clients.
A simple django middleware class which injects a
header onto POST responses.
pip install django-postleware
- Add the middleware to
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = ( 'postleware.PostResponseCachebusterMiddleware', # ... )
Mobile Webkit (iOS4+ and Android stock bowser) has a bug that causes it to
cache similar POST requests when it clearly shouldn’t. Rather than only caching
requests that have a specific
Cache-Control header, it does the opposite and
caches the request unless the
no-cache value is present in the POST response.
Not working for you?
Let me know by opening an issue or pull request. This was enough for me, but I have read around the webs that other devs needed to add additional headers to the response before it would stop caching.
