Django conditional cache for per-site cache based on user.is_authenticated()
A decorator to bypass per-site cache if the user is authenticated. Based on django.views.decorators.cache.never_cache.
from django.utils.decorators import available_attrs
from django.utils.cache import add_never_cache_headers
from functools import wraps
def conditional_cache(view_func):
Checks the user and if it's authenticated pass it through never_cache.
This version uses functools.wraps for the wrapper function.
@wraps(view_func, assigned=available_attrs(view_func))
def _wrapped_view_func(request, *args, **kwargs):
response = view_func(request, *args, **kwargs)
if request.user.is_authenticated():
return response
return _wrapped_view_func
