Helper field and manager for working with birthdays

Project description

django-birthday is a helper library to work with birthdays in models.

Authored by Jonas Obrist, and some great contributors.


pip install django-birthday


django-birthday provides a birthday.fields.BirthdayField model field type which is a subclass of django.db.models.DateField and thus has the same characteristics as that. It also internally adds a second field to your model holding the day of the year for that birthday, this is used for the extra functionality exposed by birthday.managers.BirthdayManager which you should use as the manager on your model.

A model could look like this:

from django.db import models

import birthday

class UserProfile(models.Model):
    user = models.ForeignKey('auth.User')
    birthday = birthday.fields.BirthdayField()

    objects = birthday.managers.BirthdayManager()

Get all user profiles within the next 30 days:
