django-session-csrf-cookie 0.1

Django middleware that works with session-csrf and sends a CSRF token cookie
django-session-csrf-cookie is Django app that provides a CSRF token cookie when using django-session-csrf. By design, django-session-csrf does not require a CSRF token cookie, but such a cookie is useful for AJAX requests and other web APIs, since it allows the client to get the CSRF token without parsing HTML. (Note that the cookie is not used by the server for any purpose, so the security hole django-session-csrf was designed to fix is still fixed.)
