A django abstract model and form for handling extra content in a model.

Project Description

A django abstract model and form for handling extra content in a model.

Let’s say we have a model MyData which can point to different underlying data types:

from django.db import models
from extracontent.models import ExtraContent
from extracontent.forms import ExtraContentForm

class DataModel1(models.Model):
    value = models.TextField()

class DataModel2(models.Model):
    dt = models.DateField()

class MyData(ExtraContent):
    name = models.CharField(max_length = 20)

class MyDataForm(ExtraContentForm):
    class Meta:
        model = MyData

Then we can do this:

>>> from extracontent import content
>>> elem = MyDataForm({'content_type':content('datamodel1'),
... 'value':'this is a test', name:'a data object'}).save()
>>> elem.extra_content()
<DataModel1: DataModel1 object>
>>> elem.extra_content().value
'this is a test'

Running Tests

Once installed:

>>>from extracontent.tests import run

or from within the tests directory:
