This is a basic django app that creates a table for EAV (Entity-Attribute-Value) configuration settings.

Project description


This is a basic django app that creates a table for EAV (Entity-Attribute-Value) configuration settings where each row has the following fields:

  • application
  • property_name
  • property_value

It provides methods for retrieving configuration properties that allow for a default value to be passed in. It is entirely in the admin and ORM layer, does not include an external-facing web app. This is purposely not all that complicated or sophisticated. If you want something more robust, there are other, better options. This is quick and dirty.


  • This application, simple though it may be, has been updated to support django 1.7 and later, and with it the new built-in data migrations.

  • Install django_config application:

    • install django_config - Either:

      • install using pip:

          pip install django-basic-config
      • Clone code into your django site/project.

          git clone
    • add the django_config.apps.Django_ConfigConfig application to INSTALLED_APPS:

        INSTALLED_APPS = (
            # Uncomment the next line to enable the admin:
            # 'django.contrib.admin',
            # Uncomment the next line to enable admin documentation:
            # 'django.contrib.admindocs',
    • install database tables

        python migrate django_config
