repoze.what-django allows you to control authorization at several stages in the request, both before running the views and inside them. It also provides you with a few utilities to control some authorization bits in your templates.
The plugin ships with a Django middleware which loads all the access rules defined across your application when it is run for the first time.
To start using this plugin, you need to load repoze.what‘s middleware for Django after the authentication middleware:
# settings.py MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = ( # ... "django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware", "repoze.what.plugins.dj.RepozeWhatMiddleware", # ... )
