A Django middleware that inspects the HTTP Acept headers sent by browsers. It adds a new method to each request instance called accepts(str) which can be used to determine if a certain mimetype is accepted by the user agent that issued the request.

Installation

pip install django-accept-header

Usage

First add the middleware to your settings.py file:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    # ...
    'django_accept_header.middleware.AcceptMiddleware',
)

To check if the text/plain mimetype is accepted by the user agent:

def some_view(request):
    if request.accepts('text/plain'):
        # do something

The ordered list of accepted mimetypes can also be used:

def some_view(request):
    for media_type in request.accepted_types:
        # do something

See the full documentation for how to use the media types please see the full documentation.
