pip install django-ltree

Then add django_ltree to INSTALLED_APPS in your Django project settings.

And make sure to run django_ltree migrations before you added the PathField

python migrate django_ltree

You can alternatively specify the django_ltree dependency in the migrations of your applications that requires PathField, and run migrations smoothly.

class Migration(migrations.Migration):
    dependencies = [
            ('django_ltree', '__latest__'),
