Django Model to Python dict serialization mixin.

Project description

Django Model to Python dict serialization mixin.

Based on the original gist:


Currently the package is tested with Python3 and Django 1.10 only.


The full documentation is at


Install Django-Model-To-Dict:

pip install django-model-to-dict

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:

    # or just 'django_model_to_dict'

Use ToDictMixin with your model:

from django_model_to_dict.mixins import ToDictMixin
from django.db import models

class YourModel(models.Model, ToDictMixin):

Since now you model’s instances have the to_dict method defined.

You can setup additional settings both in your global project configuration or in a particular model. See docs for more details.
