Django Debug Toolbar, not showing/appearing, Fix it & Bring it Back.

Alt Text

Are you facing the problem with Django Debug Toolbar showing up?
I faced too…
Here I will show you how I fixed it….

Install Debug Toolbar…
For virtual env: pip install django-debug-toolbar
For Pipenv: pipenv install django-debug-toolbar


Go to and add to INSTALLED_APPS

 # …
 # … not for debug mode
STATIC_URL = '/static/'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The Debug Toolbar should have appeared only in Debug mode. So, the rest of the settings will be for DEBUG mode only.

# debug_toolbar moved here. 
    INTERNAL_IPS = ['', ]

    # this is the main reason for not showing up the toolbar
    import mimetypes
    mimetypes.add_type("application/javascript", ".js", True)

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Update your {project}/ file.

from django.conf import settings
from django.urls import path, include
urlpatterns = [
# add debug toolbar in urlpatterns
if settings.DEBUG:
    import debug_toolbar
    urlpatterns += [
        path('__debug__/', include(debug_toolbar.urls)),
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The main reason for not showing up the toolbar is because of the javascript mime-types error when you connect the debug_toolbar
If the already added to your application then just add two lines of code in your file.

mimetypes.add_type("application/javascript", ".js", True)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now the debug toolbar should be visible in Debug mode.
