Built for use on grovemade.com, Django Redirector adds simple admin powered 301 redirects.
Path: /foo/bar/ Type: exact (case insensitive)
Path: /products/ Type: startswith
Uses caching heavily because the middleware is called on every request.
- redirect rules are cached once
- redirect results are cached per request path
Cache is invalidated when a new rule is saved/added.
Add the package to your python path, pip install, setup.py install, etc.
Add ‘django_redirects’ to INSTALLED_APPS
Add ‘django_redirects.middleware.RedirectMiddleware’ immediately after CommonMiddleware in MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES
Syncdb, then navigate to your admin panel!
REDIRECT_CACHE_TIME: _default: 60*30_ Seconds to cache individual page redirect results.
