Rather than using the full GZipMiddleware, you may want to just compress some views. This decorator lets you do that.

@gzip_compress
def your_view(request, ...):
    ....
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7

try:
    from functools import wraps
except ImportError:
    from django.utils.functional import wraps  # Python 2.3, 2.4 fallback.

from django.middleware.gzip import GZipMiddleware

gzip_middleware = GZipMiddleware()

def gzip_compress(func):
    """
    Gzip compress an individual view rather than requiring the whole site to
    use the Gzip middleware.
    """
    @wraps(func)
    def dec(request, *args, **kwargs):
        response = func(request, *args, **kwargs)
        return gzip_middleware.process_response(request, response)
    return dec

Note that you can also use django.utils.decorator_from_middleware to achieve the same thing.

from django.utils import decorator_from_middleware
from django.middleware.gzip import GZipMiddleware

@decorator_from_middleware(GZipMiddleware)
def my_view(request):
    pass

sorry, that should have been django.utils.decorators
