A simple Django app to represent organisms.

Project description

Organisms is a simple Django app to represent organisms.

Download and Install

This package is registered as “django-organisms” in PyPI and is pip installable:

pip install django-organisms

If django is not found on your system, pip will install it too.

Quick Start

  1. Add ‘organisms’ to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:

  2. Run python migrate command to create organisms model.

  3. (Optional) The following step is only needed if you have django-tastypie installed to create a REST API for your project and would like to have API endpoints for django-organisms.

    Add the following to your project’s file:

    # There are probably already other imports here, such as:
    # from django.conf.urls import url, patterns, include
    # If you have not already done so, import the tastypie API:
    from tastypie.api import Api
    # Import the OrganismResource:
    from organisms.api import OrganismResource
    # If you have not already done so, initialize your API and
    # add the OrganismResource to it
    v0_api = Api()
    # In the urlpatterns, include the urls for this api:
    urlpatterns = patterns('',
        (r'^api/', include(v0_api.urls))

Usage of Management Command

This app includes a management command management/commands/, which can be used to populate the organisms table in the database. It takes 3 arguments:

  • taxonomy_id
  • scientific_name
  • common_name

For example, to populate the Human object in the database, we would enter:

python organisms_create_or_update --taxonomy_id=9606 --scientific_name="Homo sapiens" --common_name="Human"
