A set of reusable base classes and helpers for django
django-baseclasses is a small set of helpers and abstract base model classes for django.
python ./setup.py install
Or with pip:
pip install django-baseclasses
Abstract classes provided in baseclasses.models
Stores a record of when the model was created and last changed, in the creation_date and last_updated fields, orders on creation_date, and provides get_next and get_prev methods respecting the ordering.
Extends DateAuditModel, adding is_live and pub_date fields, and provides a live method on the default manager which returns only objects with is_live set and a non-future pub_date. Also orders by pub_date, and provides next_live and prev_live methods which only cycle through “live” objects.
Provides caption, image and sort_order fields. Orders on sort_order.
Parent model for use with a BaseImageModel with a ForeignKey to this model. Provides primary_image property which returns the first related image object, or None. The ForeignKey’s related_name must be “image_set”
Provides parent field to create a simple hierarchy system, i.e. categories and subcategories. Provides get_hierarchy method, which returns a list of objects in the tree, from the top level to the current.
Resizes the image on upload and overwrites the original. Use max_dimensions argument to determine the resize behaviour.
Arguments: (instance, prev=False, qs=None, loop=False)
Get the next (or previous with prev=True) item for an instance, from the given queryset (which is assumed to contain instance), respecting queryset ordering. If loop is True, return the first/last item when the end/start is reached.
Enables (cache-safe) admin preview of non-live objects. Example
@admin.register(MyModel) class MyModelAdmin(ContentModelAdminMixin, admin.ModelAdmin): ...
Pass the request to the model’s live manager method to enable preview:
def my_model_view(request, slug) instance = get_object_or_404(MyModel.objects.live(request), slug=slug) ...
# models.py from django.db import models from baseclasses.models import BaseContentModel, BaseModelWithImages, \ BaseImageModel class Article(BaseContentModel, BaseModelWithImages): title = models.CharField(max_length=190) text = models.TextField() class ArticleImage(BaseImageModel): article = models.ForeignKey(Article, related_name='image_set')
With the above model definition, you can do the following:
articles = Article.objects.live() # get queryset of all live articles article = articles article.primary_image # get primary image (model instance) for the article article.next_live # get next live article
