A Django app providing database and form fields for split datetime/time and pytz timezone objects.

Project description

# django-datetimezone-field

Written on top of `django-timezone-field`.

A Django app providing database and form fields for split datetime/time and pytz timezone objects.

* Use `SplitDateTimeTimeZoneField` in place of `forms.DateTimeField`.
* Use `SplitTimeTimeZoneField` in place of `forms.TimeField`.

The setting `USE_TZ_FIELDS = True` will convert all `admin.ModelAdmin`s to use
`SplitDateTimeTimeZoneField` for `models.DateTimeField`s and `SplitTimeTimeZoneField` for `models.TimeField`s.

Requires `USE_TZ = True`

## Note

If using a database that does not support timezone-aware times then the initial values of model forms will always be in the UTC timezone.

## Form Field

import pytz

from django import http
from django import forms
from django.utils import timezone
from django.forms.util import to_current_timezone
from django.conf import settings

from datetimezone_field import SplitDateTimeTimeZoneField, \
SplitTimeTimeZoneField


def index(request):

class MyForm(forms.Form):
a_datetime = SplitDateTimeTimeZoneField()
a_time = SplitTimeTimeZoneField()

tz = pytz.timezone("Australia/Sydney")
timezone.activate(tz)
now = to_current_timezone(timezone.now()).replace(tzinfo=tz)

my_form = MyForm(initial={
'a_datetime': now,
'a_time': now.time().replace(tzinfo=now.tzinfo)
})

return http.HttpResponse(my_form.as_p())
