uaparser 0.1.0

Library for parsing browser user agents

This library parses browser user-agent strings with data from [user-agent-string.info](http://user-agent-string.info/).

This library is loosely based on the work by Hicro Kee (hicrokee AT gmail DOT com) and Michal Molhanec (http://molhanec.net).

Usage:

from uaparser import UA, UAParser
parser = UAParser()
parser.update_data()
ua = UA(parser, user_agent_string)
print ua.is_robot() # returns empty dictionary if robot is not detected
print ua.get_browser_details() # returns empty dictionary, or browser details
print ua.get_device_type() # returns dict containing device type fields
print ua.get_os_details()
# Or alternatively,
print ua.parse() # returns all parsed fields for the UA string

Django integration

As running a large number of regexes takes a long time, Django integration uses caching.

Usage:

from uaparser.django.caching_ua_parser import parse_user_agent
parsed = parse_user_agent(request.META.get("HTTP_USER_AGENT"))

parse_user_agent fetches all user-agent fields (i.e it calls ua.parse()).

Settings:

  • UA_CACHE_DIRECTORY: directory for data file (“cache.pickle”). Mandatory.
  • UA_CACHE_NAME: defaults to “default”. Defines custom Django cache name.
  • UA_CACHE_PREFIX: defaults to “parse_ua”. Key prefix for cache.
  • UA_CACHE_TIMEOUT: defaults to 48 hours. Cache key timeout in seconds.

Middleware: add uaparser.django.middleware.UAParserMiddleware to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES.

Context processor: to add parsed_ua variable to context, add uaparser.django.context_processor.add_parsed_ua to CONTEXT_PROCESSORS. This does nothing if UAParserMiddleware is not enabled.
