Generates shematics models from Django ones.

Project description

This module is a code generator, it can read Django models and outputs corresponding ones for schematics.

Of course, this is code generation, therefore a damn bad idea. This won’t keep your stuff synced.

It’s still useful, however. Sometimes you’re converting a large Django code base to domain models in schematics. In those cases, it’s a royal pain to mechanically retype hundreds of models and thousands of field definitions by hand. We have computers for that, you know.

You can either run this as a stand alone script or use it as a library.

As a Stand Alone Script

Add django2schematics to your INSTALLED_APPS settings. Then:

python 2_schematics app_name

You can specify full apps or models to export. By default the script will output to stdout. The –to-file flag will save each app models into [app-dir]/

See –help for more options.

As a Library

If you’d rather process the ouput your self then:

from django2scheamtics.exporter import SchematicsModel
# or as a string


Let me know if this works (or doesn’t) for you. Feedback is always welcome.

Feedback with accompanying pull requests and tests will buy you a beer on me next time you’re in São Paulo. Or tea, if that’s your thing.
