Django >= 1.9

In Django >= 1.9, the templates can be extended recursively (see

Create a statusboard/base.html in one of your templates dir:

{% extends `statusboard/base.html %}

{% block title %}
ACME, Inc.
{% endblock %}

{% block branding %}
<a class="navbar-brand" href="{% url 'statusboard:index' %}">ACME status</a>
{% endblock %}


django-statusboard doesn’t provide an out-of-the-box notification system, but it’s easy to implement using django signals.

Moreover, django-statusboard tracks the previous status of a service (Service._status).

from django.dispatch import receiver
from django.db.models.signals import post_save
from django.core.mail import mail_admins

from statusboard import Service

@receiver(post_save, sender=Service)
def notify_service_update(sender, instance, **kwargs):
    # Send an email to admins if the service is getting worse, otherwise do nothing.
    if instance.status > instance._status:
        mail_admins("Alert", "Service {} is {}".format(, instance.get_status_display()))
