Our Django integration lets you instrument individual HTTP requests by adding a dedicated middleware to your application. Please note that Blackfire supports Django 1.1 and higher.
Blackfire Django integration has compatibility issues with the Django debug toolbar. You may consider disabling the Django debug middleware when using Blackfire.
The recommended way to use Blackfire with Django is to use the blackfire-python command, as it configures the needed bits for you.
Run your webserver with
blackfire-python python manage.py runserver
blackfire-python gunicorn myapp.wsgi
If you prefer configuring Django manually, you can add the following call manually within your code:
import blackfire blackfire.patch_all()
This call should be made as early as possible in the lifecycle of an application,
ideally before any other
Then, restart your server.
We used to provide a Django middleware along with the Blackfire Python SDK,
This middleware is now deprecated in favor of the
blackfire-python or the
Using the middleware will trigger a deprecation warning.
You can use the
blackfire curl command to profile specific requests:
blackfire curl http://localhost:8000/polls/1/results
