Mixin for class-based views that support ETags.

class ETagViewMixin[source]

Bases: object

Mixin to handle ETag generation for a page.

This enables ETag support in the view for HTTP GET requests. On a request, get_etag_data() will be called, which will calculate an ETag for the content. If the client already knows this ETag, it will receive a HTTP 304 Not Modified. Otherwise, it will return a response with that ETag attached.

This currently only supports ETags for HTTP GET and HEAD methods.
