Django Globals - Thread specific global variables

Django-globals is a very simple application, that allow you to define thread specific global variables.

It includes a middleware Global, which can be used to access to the current request and user, which is useful outside of a view when the “request” variable is not defined.


Install using pip:

pip install django_globals


In your project’s, add django_globals.middleware.Global to MIDDLEWARE (or MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES on Django < 1.10). eg:




Now you can use from django_globals import globals and access to the globals.request and globals.user from anywhere.
