Project description

django-pyctx is a context package to use data between function calls, use timers and log it.

For detailed documentation please visit Wiki.

Quick Start

  1. Add django_pyctx to your INSTALLED_APPS  setting like this:

  2. Add django_pyctx.middlewares.RequestCTXMiddleware to your MIDDLEWARE setting like this:

      # ...,

Please add "django_pyctx.middlewares.RequestCTXMiddleware" to at the beginning of the MIDDLEWARE list.

  1. Start the development server and enjoy :)

Sample Usage

  • You can reach RequestContext instance in views from request: request.ctx

  • Example django function-based view:

    from django.http import JsonResponse
    def index(request):
        y = 5
        with request.ctx.log.timeit('index_timer'):
            request.ctx.log.set_data('isEven', y % 2)
            request.ctx.log.set_data('y', y)
            import time
            return JsonResponse({})

You can see the stdout. You are probably seeing something like this:
