Configuration

django settings.py constants

# This setting will effectively turn the middleware off, to speed up requests/response while developing
PYBROWSCAP_INITIALIZE = True # Default is `not settings.DEBUG`.

# Path where browscap file is located on filesystem
PYBROWSCAP_FILE_PATH = MEDIA_ROOT+os.sep+'browscap.csv' # Default is '' (empty string)

# Proxy to use
# See: http://docs.python-requests.org/en/latest/user/advanced/#proxies
PYBROWSCAP_PROXIES = {
  "http": "http://user:pass@10.10.1.10:3128",
  "https": "http://10.10.1.10:1080",
} # Defaults to None.

# Timeout for HTTP requets
# See: http://docs.python-requests.org/en/latest/user/quickstart/#timeouts
PYBROWSCAP_HTTP_TIMEOUT = 30

# Tuple of regular expressions of paths that are to be ignored by the middleware
PYBROWSCAP_IGNORE_PATHS = (
    re.compile(r'^/sitemap.xml$'),
    re.compile(r'^/robots.txt$'),
    re.compile(r'^/favicon.ico$'),
    re.compile(r'^/media/')
) # Defaults to an empty tupple.

# This tells middleware to reload browscap file from disk every PYBROWSCAP_RELOAD_INTERVAL seconds
PYBROWSCAP_RELOAD = True # Reload file. Default is False.
PYBROWSCAP_RELOAD_INTERVAL =  7 * 24 * 60 * 60 # Reloads browscap file once a week

Automatic Updates

Download latest version of the browscap data by executing the builtin management command::

$ python manage.py download_browscap \
--url http://browsers.garykeith.com/stream.asp?BrowsCapCSV \
--file-path /path/to/downloaded/browscap_file

You don't need to provide any options for this command. By default, latest CSV browscap file will be downloaded and saved to settings.PYBROWSCAP_FILE_PATH. Don't forget to set your settings.PYBROWSCAP_RELOAD = True. For convenience execute the command via cron automatically once a week::

5 8 * * 6 python manage.py download_browscap

Example

def standard_view(request):
    if request.browser is not None and request.browser.is_crawler():
        # do something
    else:
        # do something else
