Proper CIDR fields for Django running on any database

Project description

cidrfield provides a model field for django that allows the storage of an ip network on the db side by using ipaddress to handle conversion to an ipaddress.ip_network instance (or None) on the python side. It supports the use of __contains and __in to query the IP network that contain and belong to.


Add this to your django project by installing with pip:

pip install django-cidrfield


In your models, do something like the following:

from django.db import models
from cidrfield.models import IPNetworkField

class MyModel(models.Model):

    # the regular params should work well enough here
    ip_network = IPNetworkField()
    # ... and so on

Then you can store a ip network like the following:


And you can query a ip network like the following:

MyModel.objects.filter(ip_network__in=['', ''])

If you use DjangoQL, you can use CIDRQLSchema like the following:

from django.contrib import admin
from djangoql.admin import DjangoQLSearchMixin
from cidrfield.schemas import CIDRQLSchema
from .models import MyModel

class MyModelAdmin(DjangoQLSearchMixin, admin.ModelAdmin):
    list_display = ['ip_network']
    search_fields = ('ip_network', )
    djangoql_schema = CIDRQLSchema



  • Add support for Djangoql.

  • Fixed the bug about __in query not supporting array.
