A reusable Django app for purging database records (e.g., logs).
Purge is a reusable Django app for regularly purging old database entries, like logs.
The Problem: Tables/models like sessions and logs can grow without limit.
The Solution: This app allows you to schedule database purging of old records. You can also make FilePurgers which can purge old files based on datestamps in the filename or timestamps in the meta-data (atime/mtime/ctime).
How to Use
$ pip install django-purge
purge in your
INSTALLED_APPS. Then, create your
database purgers or file purgers in the admin interface.
Then, either periodically call the
purge management command (e.g., via a
system cronjob), or install and configure
purge.cron to your
CRON_CLASSES in your
settings.py). The builtin
CronJob class is set to run every 4
hours. You can change this by altering your
settings.py and adding
PURGE_CRON_RUN_AT_TIMES to an array of times you want to run the job at
['1:00'] to run at 1am).

To collaborators: don’t push using the
Purge comes with a settings.py file, technically making it a Django project as well as a Django app. First clone, the repository into a location of your choosing:
$ git clone https://github.com/gregschmit/django-purge
Then you can go into the
django-purge directory and do the initial
migrations and run the server (you may need to type
python3 rather than
$ cd django-purge $ python manage.py makemigrations $ python manage.py migrate $ python manage.py createsuperuser ... $ python manage.py runserver
Then you can see the models at http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin.
