The small frameworks that helps to write reusable django apps
This app provides some snippets (such as abstract models and managers with some useful methods) to simplyfy creation of another pluggable apps.
The license is MIT.
pip install django-generic-helpers
After you can add app ‘generic_helpers’ to your INSTALLED_APPS. If you aren’t want to run test, you can skip this step.
To use this app, just import GenericRelationModel class from generic_helpers.models package and inherit your model from it:
from django.db import models from generic_helpers.models import GenericRelationModel
- class MyModel(GenericRelationModel):
- title = models.CharField(max_length=255)
Now MyModel class has content_object attribute and you can create MyModel instances using generic relation:
>>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User >>> user = User.objects.get(pk=1) >>> >>> my_model = MyModel.objects.create(title='title', ... content_object=user) >>>
In this example how you can see we have used User.
Also your model manager has a get_for_object method for quick filtering by content_object complex field:
>>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User >>> user = User.objects.get(pk=1) >>> >>> models_for_user = MyModel.objects.get_for_object(user) >>>
If you’ve found a bug, implemented a feature and think it is useful, or you’ve own pluggable app and want to use django-generic-helpers in it, then please consider contributing. Patches, pull requests or just suggestions are welcome!
