Welcome to Django Downtime!¶
Small, simple, app to show a down page while you make upgrades.
This app simply runs middleware that checks to see if the site is down for maintenance. If it is, (with a period of downtime added to the apps models) either a redirect occurs or a template is loaded with a down time message. This app isn’t intended to be a full service solution as it still requires that the django site remain functional to work. In other cases it may be more beneficial to point your domain at a different server instead.
