Generate .dia diagram of your django project's models

Project description


Sometimes you need to generate a database diagram for your Django project. django-extensions does this well, but drops non-editable file like PNG. Even when you use SVG format you’ll waste much time with bunch of objects that are not stitched together: when you move a table, you’ll need to move all connected arrows and captions.

There was a time when you could generate .dia file directly with django-extensions. But dia support was dropped.


pip install django-dia


Add django-dia to your INSTALLED_APPS:


And run

./ make_diagram -a -e -o scheme  # all apps in project
./ make_diagram -e -o scheme my_app1 my_app2  # specific apps

This will produce file scheme.dia in your project directory.


Django >= 1.8 supported. In long term set of supported versions will be in parity with official django support.
