DJDT Not Showing, loaded in source

Having some issues with DJDT not showing on my project. I’ve followed the instructions both in video and from DJDT. If I view source, it’s loaded in but just not showing.

I was able to get it to show in a different browser yesterday, but on re-starting project it’s not showing in any now.




path('__debug__/', include('debug_toolbar.urls')),

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I’m at wit’s end.

Looking over the installation docs, in step 2. Check for Prerequisites, did you set:

        "BACKEND": "django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates",
        "APP_DIRS": True,
        # ...

The TEMPLATES in your file should look like this:

        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': [],
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [

Sorry for the late reply, and thank you for your help.

I did have my settings set that way, but was still unable to progress. Since I had abandoned this and took another course, I was able to better debug this myself, so for anyone having issues.


In your file, add the following:
    import mimetypes
    mimetypes.add_type("application/javascript", ".js", True)

After this you’ll need a wipe in browser settings, or just open an incognito tab.
