JSONField from django.contrib.postgres, but with a fallback to TextField

Project description

https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/django-jsonfallback.svg https://travis-ci.com/raphaelm/django-jsonfallback.svg?branch=master https://codecov.io/gh/raphaelm/django-jsonfallback/branch/master/graph/badge.svg

This is an extension to django.contrib.postgres.fields.JSONField, that works on other databases than PostgreSQL.

  • On MySQL and MariaDB, it uses the native JSON data type and supports most features.
  • On SQLite and all other databases, it just stores JSON strings in a text field and does not support querying.

This is tested against:

  • Python 3.4 to 3.6
  • Django 2.0 to 2.1
  • MySQL 5.7
  • MariaDB 10.3
  • PostgreSQL 9.4
  • SQLite (no querying funcationality)

Usage

Just use our drop-in replacement for JSONField:

from django.db import models
from jsonfallback.fields import FallbackJSONField


class Book(models.Model):
    data = FallbackJSONField()

    def __str__(self):
        return str(self.data['title'])
