Advisory per-record database locking.

Project description

record_lock is a Django app providing advisory per-record locks. For example, you may want to mark an editable page as being “in use” so that authors can’t overwrite one-another. In this case, the second author would see a message advising that the page was being edited already. “Advisory” means that the locks can be overridden if you have lower-level access to the database.

This version has been written to be compatible with a prior PHP implementation by Nathan Fraser, and may not yet take full advantage of Django features.


To test, first install the package into your virtualenv, ensuring that Django is also installed. Then run:

$ python test record_lock
