Project description

Django Add Default Value

Django Migration Operation that can be used to transfer a field's default value to the database scheme.

PyPi License Contributing 3yourminD-Careers Stars

Dependencies

  • MySQL (or compatible)
  • PostgreSQL

Installation

pip install django-add-default-value

You can then use AddDefaultValue in your migration file to transfer the default values to your database. Afterwards, it's just the usual ./manage.py migrate.

Usage

Add this manually to a autogenerated Migration, that adds a new fiels::

AddDefaultValue(
    model_name='my_model',
    name='my_field',
    value='my_default'
)

Example

Given the following migration::

operations = [
    migrations.AddField(
        field=models.CharField(default='my_default', max_length=255),
        model_name='my_model',
        name='my_field',
    ),
]

Modify the migration to add a default value::

+from django_add_default_value import AddDefaultValue
+
 operations = [
     migrations.AddField(
         field=models.CharField(default='my_default', max_length=255),
         model_name='my_model',
         name='my_field',
     ),
+    AddDefaultValue(
+        model_name='my_model',
+        name='my_field',
+        value='my_default'
+    )
 ]

If you check python manage.py sqlmigrate [app name] [migration], you will see that the default value now gets set.
