django-custom-401 Summary ------- When you raise a PermissionDenied exception in a view, Django returns a pretty ugly 401 error page. Wouldn't it be great if we could customize that page? Installation ------------ 1) Put custom_401 in your PYTHONPATH. 2) Put Custom401Middleware in your settings file: MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = ( 'custom_401.middleware.Custom401Middleware', ... ) 3) Optional: customize the default template location in custom_401/__init__.py 4) Create a template to use when PermissionDenied is raised and put it in the location specified in custom_401/__ini__.py. The template by default will receive the exception in its context as EXCEPTION, as well as a standard RequestContext (fork if you need more/less context). Note on 401 ----------- It's debatable whether or not a 401 Unauthorized error is the correct HTTP response to use when raising a PermissionDenied exception . If you're a stickler for that kind of stuff, feel free to fork this project and modify the HTTP response to be a 403, or whatever you feel is more appropriate .  http://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/4354  http://www.djangosnippets.org/snippets/813/
