django-cors-headers-multi 1.2.0

django-cors-headers is a Django application for handling the server headers required for Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS).

django-cors-headers-multi
=========================

A Django App that adds CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing) headers to responses.

Although JSON-P is useful, it is strictly limited to GET requests. CORS builds on top of XmlHttpRequest to allow developers to make cross-domain requests, similar to same-domain requests. Read more about it here: [http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/cors/ ](http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/cors/)

[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/ottoyiu/django-cors-headers.png?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/ottoyiu/django-cors-headers)

## Setup ##
Install by downloading the source and running:

> python setup.py install

or

> pip install django-cors-headers-multi

and then add it to your installed apps:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
...
'corsheaders',
...
)

You will also need to add a middleware class to listen in on responses:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
...
'corsheaders.middleware.CorsMiddleware',
'django.middleware.common.CommonMiddleware',
...
)

Note that `CorsMiddleware` needs to come before Django's `CommonMiddleware` if you are using Django's `USE_ETAGS = True` setting, otherwise the CORS headers will be lost from the 304 not-modified responses, causing errors in some browsers.

## Configuration ##

Add hosts that are allowed to do cross-site requests to `CORS_ORIGIN_WHITELIST` or set `CORS_ORIGIN_ALLOW_ALL` to `True` to allow all hosts.


>CORS\_ORIGIN\_ALLOW\_ALL: if True, the whitelist will not be used and all origins will be accepted

Default:

CORS_ORIGIN_ALLOW_ALL = False

>CORS\_ORIGIN\_WHITELIST: specify a list of origin hostnames that are authorized to make a cross-site HTTP request

Example:

CORS_ORIGIN_WHITELIST = (
'google.com',
'hostname.example.com'
)


Default:

CORS_ORIGIN_WHITELIST = ()

>CORS\_ORIGIN\_REGEX\_WHITELIST: specify a regex list of origin hostnames that are authorized to make a cross-site HTTP request; Useful when you have a large amount of subdomains for instance.

Example:

CORS_ORIGIN_REGEX_WHITELIST = ('^(https?://)?(\w+\.)?google\.com$', )


Default:

CORS_ORIGIN_REGEX_WHITELIST = ()


---


You may optionally specify these options in settings.py to override the defaults. Defaults are shown below:


>CORS\_URLS\_REGEX: specify a URL regex for which to enable the sending of CORS headers; Useful when you only want to enable CORS for specific URLs, e. g. for a REST API under ``/api/``.

Example:

CORS_URLS_REGEX = r'^/api/.*$'

Default:

CORS_URLS_REGEX = '^.*$'

>CORS\_ALLOW\_METHODS: specify the allowed HTTP methods that can be used when making the actual request

Default:

CORS_ALLOW_METHODS = (
'GET',
'POST',
'PUT',
'PATCH',
'DELETE',
'OPTIONS'
)

>CORS\_ALLOW\_HEADERS: specify which non-standard HTTP headers can be used when making the actual request

Default:

CORS_ALLOW_HEADERS = (
'x-requested-with',
'content-type',
'accept',
'origin',
'authorization',
'x-csrftoken'
)

>CORS\_EXPOSE\_HEADERS: specify which HTTP headers are to be exposed to the browser

Default:

CORS_EXPOSE_HEADERS = ()

>CORS\_PREFLIGHT\_MAX\_AGE: specify the number of seconds a client/browser can cache the preflight response

Note: A preflight request is an extra request that is made when making a "not-so-simple" request (eg. content-type is not application/x-www-form-urlencoded) to determine what requests the server actually accepts. Read more about it here: [http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/cors/](http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/cors/)

Default:

CORS_PREFLIGHT_MAX_AGE = 86400

>CORS\_ALLOW\_CREDENTIALS: specify whether or not cookies are allowed to be included in cross-site HTTP requests (CORS).

Default:

CORS_ALLOW_CREDENTIALS = False

>CORS\_REPLACE\_HTTPS\_REFERER: specify whether to replace the HTTP_REFERER header if CORS checks pass so that CSRF django middleware checks will work with https

Note: With this feature enabled, you also need to add the corsheaders.middleware.CorsPostCsrfMiddleware after django.middleware.csrf.CsrfViewMiddleware to undo the header replacement

Default:

CORS_REPLACE_HTTPS_REFERER = False

>CORS\_ENDPOINT\_OVERRIDES: a list of (regex, override) pairs that override settings for certain URLs.

Example:

CORS_ENDPOINT_OVERRIDES = [
(r'/api/user/.*$', {
'CORS_ORIGIN_WHITELIST': ['https://secure.mydomain.com'],
}),
(r'/api/public/.*$', {
'CORS_ORIGIN_ALLOW_ALL': True,
}),
]

Default:

CORS_ENDPOINT_OVERRIDES = []
