How to Install

The django-userextensions package is available on Python Package Index (PyPI) and can be installed via pip:

pip install django-handyhelpers

add 'handyhelpers' to your INSTALLED_APPS (for management commands and templates)

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'handyhelpers',
]

Management Commands

DRF Generator

Django-handyhelpers includes manage.py commands to generate DRF files (api views, serializers, urls) for a given app in your project. This is done using jinja templates that define the structure of each file. Default templates are provided, and custom templates can be provided in the command. By default, all models and models fields are included.

Example command:

manage.py generate_drf <my_app> --serializer
manage.py generate_drf <my_app> --serializer --serializer_template <my_custom_template>

** use the --help parameter for a full list of options

manage.py generate_drf --help

Admin Generator

Included with django-handyhelpers are manage.py commands to auto-generate an admin.py file for a given application in your project. This is done using a jinja template that defines the structure of the admin.py file. A default template is provided.

Example command:

manage.py generate_admin <my_app>
manage.py generate_admin <my_app> --template <my_custom_template>

** use the --help parameter for a full list of options

manage.py generate-admin --help     

Mixins

FilterByQueryParamsMixin

Allows your list views to be filtered by query parameters.

InvalidLookupMixin

Returns an applicable error, instead of results based on an unfiltered queryset, if a provided lookup expression, filter, or model field is invalid.
