Set some cache-related headers automatically, defining not-authenticated
requests as public and authenticated requests as private. You can also customize these values for specific URLs. This middleware class will also setup these HTTP headers:
This middleware works and is designed to integrate Django with CloudFlare Cache (or similar services). Used in production on MinbilDinbil.dk servers.
Add django-smartcc on your requirements.txt file or just launch:
pip install -U django-smartcc
Then add django-smartcc in the installed apps and in the middleware, so add these line in your settings.py file.
INSTALLED_APPS += [
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES += [
**Note**: Remember that this middleware requires authentication, so it should be loaded after the *django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware*!
## Customization and Settings
You can customize a specific Cache-control value on each URL. For example
if we want to avoid cache on */hello/* , but always have it on */api/search* for 5 minutes, we should write this in our settings file:
SCC_CUSTOM_URL_CACHE = (
(r'/hello/$', 'private', 0),
(r'/api/search$', 'public', 300),
Other options are available to customize the behaviour of the middleware:
**SCC_SET_VARY_HEADER**: Define if the middleware have to set the Vary header.
Default value: *True*
**SCC_SET_EXPIRE_HEADER**: Define if the middleware should set the Expires
header. Default value: *True*
**SCC_MAX_AGE_PUBLIC**: Define the default max-age value in seconds for public
requests. Default value: *86400*
**SCC_MAX_AGE_PRIVATE**: Define the default max-age value in seconds for
private requests. Default value: *0*
