Useful Django Bits

I have been busy working on some other non-SQL related side projects recently, and I wanted to note some of the pieces of code I have been appreciating recently.

https://github.com/PaesslerAG/django-currentuser is a simple plugin that allows you to reference your current user context in your models various functions. This greatly simplified some user management functions within my codebase, as I could express it all in the model.

https://www.django-rest-framework.org/ is a powerful framework on top of Django that allows you to build a straightforward rest framework. Django doesn’t have object based permissions and I have been building out the next version of my codebase with it, its definitely a lot more pluggable than anything I designed.

https://pythoncircle.com/post/439/server-access-logging-in-django-using-middleware/ an easy way to track user access – one migration adds a log to your table, and you get whatever you want out of each request flow. Be careful that you follow your GDPR/CCPA guidelines!

https://github.com/pennersr/django-allauth is something I have been investigating but it seems a bit much for my goals, I will come back and update more about this soon.
