Django 1.2+ middleware that allows you to set cookies from a request object.
from types import MethodType
from django.http import CompatCookie, HttpRequest
def _set_cookie(self, key, value='', max_age=None, expires=None, path='/',
domain=None, secure=False):
self._resp_cookies[key] = value
self.COOKIES[key] = value
if max_age is not None:
self._resp_cookies[key]['max-age'] = max_age
if expires is not None:
self._resp_cookies[key]['expires'] = expires
if path is not None:
self._resp_cookies[key]['path'] = path
if domain is not None:
self._resp_cookies[key]['domain'] = domain
if secure:
self._resp_cookies[key]['secure'] = True
def _delete_cookie(self, key, path='/', domain=None):
self.set_cookie(key, max_age=0, path=path, domain=domain,
expires='Thu, 01-Jan-1970 00:00:00 GMT')
del self.COOKIES[key]
except KeyError:
class RequestCookies(object):
Allows setting and deleting of cookies from requests in exactly the same
way as responses.
>>> request.set_cookie('name', 'value')
The set_cookie and delete_cookie are exactly the same as the ones built
into the Django HttpResponse class.
def process_request(self, request):
request._resp_cookies = CompatCookie()
request.set_cookie = MethodType(_set_cookie, request, HttpRequest)
request.delete_cookie = MethodType(_delete_cookie, request, HttpRequest)
def process_response(self, request, response):
if hasattr(request, '_resp_cookies') and request._resp_cookies:
return response
