A collection of utilities that make dealing with Django models more fun.

Project description


1. `pip install -e git+git://`

Included Tools

### Enum

The `Enum` class lets you quickly define enumeration types for model field
values. It uses [Pep 435][1]-style enums, but has some extra model-specific
functionality (like the ability to easily add custom labels).


#### Usage


from modeltools import Enum, EnumField

class MyModel(models.Model):

class Color(Enum):
RED = 'r'
GREEN = 'g'
BLUE = 'b'

color = models.EnumField(Color)


m = MyModel.objects.filter(color=MyModel.Color.RED)

#### Custom Labels

By default, labels are title-cased versions of your enum member names (e.g.
"Red" for `Color.RED`). You can customize this with an inner `Labels` class.

class Color(Enum):
RED = 'r'
GREEN = 'g'
BLUE = 'b'

class Labels:
RED = 'El color del diablo'

#### Ordering

Members aren't automatically ordered in Python 2.X enums. You have to do it
yourself using an `__order__` attribute.

class Color(Enum):
__order__ = 'RED GREEN BLUE'

RED = 'r'
GREEN = 'g'
BLUE = 'b'

### format_filename

The `format_filename` function provides an easy way to name user media (uploaded files) based on properties of the model that stores them.

#### Usage


from modeltools import format_filename as _ff

class Person(models.Model):
first_name = models.CharField(max_length=50)
last_name = models.CharField(max_length=50)
middle_name = models.CharField(max_length=50)
avatar = models.ImageField(upload_to=_ff('avatars/{last_name}_{first_name}'))

In the above example, `{first_name}` and `{last_name}` will be replaced with the corresponding values from the `Person` instance. The uploaded file will automatically retain its original extension.


`{__filename}` and `{__ext}` allows access to the name and extension the file was uploaded with.

By default, the properties used in the formatting pattern will be converted to lowercase, stripped of non-word characters, and have their spaces replaced with underscores. (This behavior can be changed by providing extra arguments to the `format_filename` function.) The rest of the formatting string will be unaffected.
