A decoder/encoder Field for uuid

Project description


Tests Linters

Provides a NativeShortUUIDField for your Django models which uses the base-57 "Short UUID" package at to be used in Python and store it as full UUID in database.


Install it with pip (or easy_install):

$ pip install django-nativeshortuuidfield


First you'll need to add a NativeShortUUIDField to your class:

from native_shortuuid import NativeShortUUIDField

class MyModel(models.Model):
    uuid = NativeShortUUIDField(unique=True, default=uuid.uuid4)



  • NativeShortUUIDField is a subclass of django.db.models.UUIDField

  • You can pass usual Django UUIDField parameters on init, although some of them are added/overwritten:

    • blank=True, editable=False (set auto=False to remove these fields enforcement)
