Put your website into read-only mode for maintanance. It blocks any POST requests and signs users out. It doesn't lock any database transactions (check out https://github.com/streeter/django-db-readonly for that).


  • pip install django-readonly
  • settings.py: add 'readonly.middleware.ReadOnlyMiddleware', to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES
  • settings.py: READ_ONLY = True
  • template: {% if request.read_only %}<p>Website is currently in read-only mode.</p>{% endif %}
