A Django-based implementation of the OpenGovernment context, compliant with the Popolo data specifications.
Welcome to the documentation for django-popolo!
django-popolo is a django-based implementation of the Popolo's open government data specifications.
It is developed as a Django reusable app to be deployed directly within Django projects.
It will allow web developers using it to manage and store data according to Popolo's specifications.
The standard sql-oriented Django ORM will be used.
From release 1.2.0, django-popolo includes classes that extend the model, although compatibility with the standard is kept.
Release 2.0.0 introduces a change in how Sources and Links are referred to, that breaks compatibility with the popit importer.
Release 3.0.0 main focuses have been to keep up with latest Django
versions and to "modernize" the code base, adopting latest Python features (like type hinting),
and doing some serious housekeeping. Python 2 is no longer supported.
This release also implements a lot of new models which are not part of the Popolo specification (mildly out of scope),
but we needed them in some projects which make use this package. Those new models can be safely ignored, and they could
also be removed in the future, as we are considering the option of entirely decoupling them from

Our packages, since version 1.1 also uses numerical ids as primary keys for all entities.
Slugs are available as non-primary fields, for the 4 main classes (
Slugs are used through the
Permalinkable behavior, that adds the
slug field to the class, populating it according to rules defined in each class.
