How can I be certain that my application is running on development server or not? I suppose I could check value of
server = request.META.get('wsgi.file_wrapper', None) if server is not None and server.__module__ == 'django.core.servers.basehttp': print('inside dev')
wsgi.file_wrapper might be set on META, and have a class from a module named
django.core.servers.basehttp by extreme coincidence on another server environment, but I hope this will have you covered.
By the way, I discovered this by making a syntatically invalid template while running on the development server, and searched for interesting stuff on the
Traceback and the
Request information sections, so I'm just editing my answer to corroborate with Nate's ideas.
