django-hoptoad is some simple Middleware for letting Django-driven websites report their errors to Hoptoad. Now ponies can ride the toad too.


django-hoptoad requires:


Grab the the django-hoptoad code by cloning the Mercurial repository (or just download the latest version and unzip it somewhere):

hg clone

There's a git mirror too if you really want it:

git clone git://

Once you download it, you can install it in the usual manner:

cd django-hoptoad
python install

If you'd prefer to be able to update at any time by pulling down changes with Mercurial or git, you can symlink the module into your site-packages directory instead of using python install:

ln -s /full/path/to/django-hoptoad/hoptoad /full/path/to/site-packages/

To make sure it works you can run:

python -c 'import hoptoad'


To set up a Django project to notify Hoptoad of its errors, you need to do two things in its file.

First, add the HoptoadNotifierMiddleware as the last item in the MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES` setting:

    # ... other middleware classes ...

Next, you'll need to add a HOPTOAD_API_KEY setting. You can get the key from the Hoptoad project page:

HOPTOAD_API_KEY = 'Your Hoptoad API key.'


There are more advanced options that can be used to customize your Hoptoad notification process; please go to Configuration guide to see more advanced configuration and usage options.


The documentation for django-hoptoad is at the project page. There's a Quick Start guide, Configuration guide, Troubleshooting guide, and a few other things there.

The documentation is stored in the docs/ directory of the repository if you prefer to read it offline.


This Middleware is a work in progress. If you have a suggestion or find a bug please add an issue and let me know.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
