Detect backward incompatible migrations for your django project
Django migration linter
Detect backward incompatible migrations for your Django project. It will save you time by making sure migrations will not break with a older codebase.
pip install django-migration-linter
And add the migration linter your
INSTALLED_APPS = [ ..., "django_migration_linter", ..., ]
$ python manage.py lintmigrations (app_add_not_null_column, 0001_create_table)... OK (app_add_not_null_column, 0002_add_new_not_null_field)... ERR NOT NULL constraint on columns (app_drop_table, 0001_initial)... OK (app_drop_table, 0002_delete_a)... ERR DROPPING table (app_ignore_migration, 0001_initial)... OK (app_ignore_migration, 0002_ignore_migration)... IGNORE (app_rename_table, 0001_initial)... OK (app_rename_table, 0002_auto_20190414_1500)... ERR RENAMING tables *** Summary *** Valid migrations: 4/8 Erroneous migrations: 3/8 Migrations with warnings: 0/8 Ignored migrations: 1/8
The linter analysed all migrations from the Django project. It found 3 migrations that are doing backward incompatible operations and 1 that is explicitly ignored. The list of incompatibilities that the linter analyses can be found at docs/incompatibilities.md.
More advanced usages of the linter and options can be found at docs/usage.md.
One can either integrate the linter in the CI using its
lintmigrations command, or detect incompatibilities during generation of migrations with
$ python manage.py makemigrations --lint Migrations for 'app_correct': tests/test_project/app_correct/migrations/0003_a_column.py - Add field column to a Linting for 'app_correct': (app_correct, 0003_a_column)... ERR NOT NULL constraint on columns The migration linter detected that this migration is not backward compatible. - If you keep the migration, you will want to fix the issue or ignore the migration. - By default, the newly created migration file will be deleted. Do you want to keep the migration? [y/N] n Deleted tests/test_project/app_correct/migrations/0003_a_column.py
The linter found that the newly created migration is not backward compatible and deleted the file after confirmation.
This behaviour can be the default of the
makemigrations command through the
MIGRATION_LINTER_OVERRIDE_MAKEMIGRATIONS Django setting.
Find out more about the makemigrations command at docs/makemigrations.md.
Please find more documentation in the docs/ folder.
Some implementation details can be found in the ./docs/internals/ folder.
