#18611 closed New feature (fixed)

Show the date and time when the dev server gets started

It would be very useful, I think, if the dev server outputted the date and time when is gets started. Something like:

July 10, 2012 - 1:23pm
0 errors found
Django version 1.5.dev20120707224104, using settings 'src.settings'
Development server is running at
Quit the server with CONTROL-C.

The server can't always be trusted to systematically restart when there's a code change. Because of that, I keep finding myself shutting it down and restarting it, just in case, because I'm not sure it actually just picked up the change. Seeing the date/time would help to quickly be sure.

Why not.

This could help, until we get a better autoreloader (one day).

This seemed like a pretty simple addition so I added a patch for this to display the current Datetime in the format above.

Let me know if it needs anything else.

FTR this made it impossible to start the dev server on some platforms, see #21358 and #23265.
