Django Downtime

Recently I’ve had a need to display a down page, or simply redirect users to a different site while I did maintenance. I couldn’t quite find what I was looking for so built my own downtime app. While its not perfect it allows me to put up a down page, or just redirect users to another site while I do database maintenance. I’ve published the code on Github and the package is available on PyPi as well.

pip install django-downtime

add to installed apps


Add downtime middleware to the top your list of installed middlewares
