Shortcircuit Django middlewares for a list of views you want skipped


The full documentation is at


Install django-shortcircuit::

pip install django-shortcircuit

Then use it in a project::

Include it in your middleware classes, BEFORE middlewares you potentially want skipped
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = ( ... 'shortcircuit.middleware.ShortCircuitMiddleware', ... )

Define a list of urlpatterns you want skipped

SHORTCIRCUIT_URL_PATTERNS = (r'^/skip_me', r'^/also_me')


* This middleware allows skipping middlewares that aren't usefull for certain URL patterns.
It's targeted to applications where there is heavy processing done in middleware and for various reasons (code ownership, lack of time) it's hard to do proper refactoring
Bear in mind, this only skips process_view methods of middlewares used after ShortCircuitMiddleware
