GzipMiddleware does not work with generator-created responses

Reported by: Andreas Sommer <AndiDog@…> Owned by: nobody
Component: Uncategorized Version: master
Severity: Keywords: gzip
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


With a response like

def gen():
    yield "something"
return HttpResponse(gen())

and a HTTP 200 status code, the GzipMiddleware will always return an empty response because it accesses the response.content property twice. That means the _get_content getter applies ''.join twice to the generator, but a generator can only be iterated once.

See patch proposal.
