Data migration framework for Django that migrates legacy data into your new django app
django-data-migration is a reusable Django app that migrates your legacy data into your new django app. The only thing you have to supply is an appropriate SQL query that transforms your data from the old schema into your model structure. Dependencies between these migrations will be resolved automatically. Give it a try!
This extension is tested automatically against:
- Django 1.5
- Django 1.6
- Django 1.7
on Python 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4.
Python 3.2 is not supported, due to a SyntaxError in the future library which is used to support both Python 2 and 3.
Install using pip:
pip install django-data-migration
Add to INSTALLED_APPS:
Run ./manage.py migrate or ./manage.py syncdb to create the included models
Alternatively, you can add django-data-migration to your requirements.txt.
The documentation of django-data-migration is built by sphinx and can be edited in the docs/ directory of this project.
