Displays a warning message in the admin when the used Django version is insecure or outdated and provides a management command (or celery task) that checks for updates periodically.

Documentation

The full documentation is at https://django-updater.readthedocs.org.

Quickstart

Install django-updater:

pip install django-updater

Then, add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    "updater",
)

If you want to enable it in the admin area, make sure to put updater before django.contrib.admin:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    "updater",
    "django.contrib.admin",
)

Usage

If you have django-updater enabled in the admin area, it will display a info/warning message when there are updates available automatically.

In order to check for updates in an automated fashion, django-updater has to be called periodically. There are two ways to accomplish that:

  • Running a periodic Celery task
  • Create a cronjob

Celery

If you are using Celery and have a celery beat daemon running, enable Celery support in your settings with:

from datetime import timedelta

CELERYBEAT_SCHEDULE = {
    'run-django-updater': {
        'task': 'updater.tasks.run_check',
        'schedule': timedelta(days=1),
    },
}

And you are good to go!

Cronjob

You can use a cronjob to check for updates once a day.

To set up a cronjob, run:

crontab -e

And then add:

30 2 * * * python /path/to/your/apps/manage.py check_for_updates

If you are using a virtual environment, you might need to point to the python executable your virtual environment is using:

30 2 * * * /path/to/virtual/environment/bin/python /path/to/your/apps/manage.py check_for_updates
