There are almost a dozen middleware classes built in in Django. However, figuring out in which order they should be embedded in the settings can get beyond a newbies reach in seconds.

Please update the documentation over at Built-in Middleware and add either:

  • a copy'n paste list for of how all middleware classes described there can be embedded


  • a more detailed "this must come before/after that" guideline

There are only a couple of middlewares that are order dependent (e.g., GzipMiddleware, TransactionMiddleware), and their documentation describes that order dependence. Otherwise, the order is either unimportant, or entirely dependent on what you are trying to achieve.
