# file: your_module/views.py
# ...
@memoize(timeout=60)
def very_heavy_view(request):
time_consuming_function()
# ...

# file: your_module/views.py
# ...
from django.conf import settings
# ...
@memoize(timeout=60, unless=settings.IS_TESTING)
def very_heavy_view(request):
time_consuming_function()
# ...
