An extension for IPython that help to define django's models in your interactive session.

see this notebook
Define your django models in an IPython cell and use them on the fly. Let the magic do the boring part.
Django ORM isn’t conceived to be used standalone. Even for a trivial case, you need to configure a database, create an app, etc. This magic handle that automatically, and then import every model to your interactive session.
You can install or upgrade via pip
pip install -U django-orm-magic
or directly from the repository using the %install_ext magic command:
In: %install_ext https://raw.github.com/mgaitan/django-orm-magic/master/django_orm_magic.py
Once it’s installed, you can load it with %load_ext django_orm_magic. Then define your models in a cell started with the cell magic %%django_orm. For example:
In: %load_ext django_orm_magic In: %%django_orm from django.db import models class Poll(models.Model): question = models.CharField(max_length=200) pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published') class Choice(models.Model): poll = models.ForeignKey(Poll) choice_text = models.CharField(max_length=200) votes = models.IntegerField(default=0)
And it’s done. Every model is synced in a sqlite database named db.sqlite in your current path and imported automatically:
In: Poll.objects.all() Out:  In: from django.utils import timezone p = Poll(question="What's new?", pub_date=timezone.now()) p.save()
