Simple Django middleware that delays the processing of each request
This module provides very simple Django middleware that sleeps on every request.
This is useful when you want to simulate slow response times (as might be
encountered, say, on a cell network).
To use, add this middleware, and add a value for SLEEP_TIME to your settings.
Possible future feature: Look for an X-Django-Sleep header on each request,
to let the client specify per-request sleep time.
import time
import django.conf
import django.core.exceptions
class SleepMiddleware(object):
def __init__(self):
self.sleep_time = getattr(django.conf.settings, "SLEEP_TIME", 0)
if not isinstance(self.sleep_time, (int, float)) or self.sleep_time <= 0:
raise django.core.exceptions.MiddlewareNotUsed
def process_request(self, request):

nice work


I implement the header feature at my fork.

best regards
