A Django middleware which allows you to view the site on behalf of a user.
A simple middleware which allows a superuser to view the site on behalf of another user.
This idea originated within Disqus, and has served quite well in helping debug user problems.
Install the package:
pip install django-view-as
Add the middleware:
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = ( 'viewas.middleware.ViewAsMiddleware', )
Register the application within INSTALLED_APPS:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( 'django.contrib.auth', 'django.contrib.sessions', 'viewas', )
Make sure the application loader is available for templates:
TEMPLATE_LOADERS = ( 'django.template.loaders.app_directories.Loader', )
Load any page with an html response type, hit the tilda key (~), and you’ll see a new toolbar at the bottom of the page. Enter a username to change who you’re viewing the site as.
