Django app to automatically redirect users when it is the Sabbath day, with support for overriding on other Biblical Holy days.

Project description


Keep Sabbath is a Django app to automatically redirect website visitors when it is the Sabbath day, with support for overriding on other Biblical Holy days.


Keep-Sabbath is for webmasters with e-commerce shops, blogs, etc. who would like to keep the Biblical 7th-day Sabbath and other Holy days of the Bible Holy.

The django app allows you to easily setup a system for a Django-powered website that will automatically redirect visitors to a single page (explaining about the Sabbath, redirect, etc.) if it is the Sabbath day or another Holy day.

The app uses internal, offline calculations (via the SolarTime module) and the current date/time of the server to figure out if it is the Sabbath day (thus, if the user should be redirected), so you do not have to do it manually. It is optimized for performance and speed.

There is also an option to manually override it as well, which is useful for other Biblical Holy days.

The timing is based on the understanding that the 7th-day Sabbath day starts on 6th day ("Friday") evening and ends on 7th day ("Saturday") evening, according to the Bible.
