- admin user auth debugging 500
- 4 (after 4 ratings)
Based loosely on Eric's middleware, this middleware will show the technical 500 page (which you'd get if DEBUG == True) to any user who is (1) superuser and (2) a member of the settings.TECHNICAL_500_GROUP_NAME group. (If no setting exists, 'Technical Errors' is the presumed group name.
I agreed with the comments that caching should be unnecessary given the (presumptive) edge case of exception + superuser. Assuming you don't have tons of superusers, this code is a good bit simpler.
