Install Python Imaging Library (PIL) on OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

9/04/2011

I look a bit painful to do this at first, but here is a very simple solution.

  1. Install brew
  2. run ‘brew instal PIL’
  3. Brew install PIL at /usr/local/Cellar/pil/1.1.7/lib/python2.6/site-packages
  4. Symlink the PIL site-packages to your Python site-packages in /Library/Python/2.6/site-packages

    ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/pil/1.1.7/lib/python2.6/site-packages/PIL /Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/PIL

Django 1.2 CSRF verification failed

17/02/2010

Are you updating an old Django  project to use Django 1.2, and getting this error message when you try to login to the Django admin page?

403 Forbidden

CSRF verification failed. Request aborted.
Help

Reason given for failure:

CSRF cookie not set.

Then you need to add  ‘django.middleware.csrf.CsrfViewMiddleware’, and  ‘django.middleware.csrf.CsrfResponseMiddleware’ your settings.py file. Mine looks like this:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
‘django.middleware.common.CommonMiddleware’,
‘django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware’,
‘django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware’,
‘django.middleware.csrf.CsrfViewMiddleware’,
‘django.middleware.csrf.CsrfResponseMiddleware’,
)

Thanks to the Django docs http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/csrf/#how-to-use-it
