This middleware makes the admin error emails a lot more informative: you get the same HTML response that you get with DEBUG=True.

It uses the base class defined in #638.

You will probably want to apply the patch for #6748 to help avoid slowdowns caused by unintentional database queries. As the ticket (and django-developers thread) notes, it isn't foolproof; you may still find this executing database queries.

        msg.attach_alternative(debug_response.content, 'text/html')
        msg.send(fail_silently=True)

Ignore the above comment; the snippet has been changed to reflect that.

Howto use this middleware in your own project:

1. Download snippets 631 (this page) and 638.

2. Change the import line in the top of 631, so that 638 will be found, for example:

from myproject.middleware.638 import StandardExceptionMiddleware...

3. Add the middleware to myproject/settings.py:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = ( myproject.middleware.631.HTMLMailExceptionMiddleware ... )

Would it be possible to send the "debug_response.content" as an attachment in the mail, instead of as part of the message?
