A collection of Django middleware classes which make writing timezone and location aware applications easier
Django Visitor Information Middleware
This module contains a collection of middleware classes which make writing timezone and location aware applications easier.
Information provided by this middleware can be used to do things like:
- Display a cookie consent message if visitor is coming from the country within the EU
- Display timezone change notification if a user’s location timezone doesn’t match a timezone which is currently set in the profile
pip install django-visitor-information-middleware
To determine location information based on the user IP address, this module uses GEO IP database.
By default, it ships with a free GeoLite2 database (http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geoip2/geolite2/).
If you want to use a custom database file, simply set VISITOR_INFO_GEOIP_DATABASE_PATH setting to point to your geoip database file. Keep in mind that this file needs to be readable by a process under which your Django application is running.
The middleware activates a timezone for an authenticated user.
This middleware adds the following keys to the request.visitor dictionary:
- country - country the visitor is based in
- city - city the visitor is based in
- location.timezone - timezone used in the location visitor is based in
- location.unit_system - unit system used in the location visitor is based in
- user.timezone - timezone of the currently authenticated user
- user.unit_system - unit system of the currently authenticated user.
- cookie_notice - True if a cookie consent notice should be displayed for the current visitor.
Note: Location of the user is determined based on the user’s IP address.
