Project description

[![Build Status](](

django-request is a statistics module for django. It stores requests in a database for admins to see, it can also be used to get statistics on who is online etc.

![Traffic graph](docs/graph.png)

As well as a site statistics module, with the active_users template tag and manager method you can also use django-request to show who is online in a certain time.


To find the request overview page, please click on Requests inside the admin, then “Overview” on the top right, next to “add”.


  • Put ‘request’ in your INSTALLED_APPS setting.
  • Run the command syncdb.
  • Add request.middleware.RequestMiddleware to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES. If you use django.contrib.auth, place the RequestMiddleware after it. If you use django.contrib.flatpages place request.middleware.RequestMiddleware before it else flatpages will be marked as error pages in the admin panel.
  • Make sure that the domain name in django.contrib.sites admin is correct. This is used to calculate unique visitors and top referrers.
