Forward-port of Django's reset management command. It was removed with Django 1.5.

Project description

This is a port of Django’s reset management command that was shipped with Django 1.4.x and earlier. Django 1.5 removed this command.

There might be good reasons not to further maintain it in the Django core, however it was always quite useful during prototyping a new Django based project. Thats why I decided to bring it to Django 1.5 and higher with this app.

Full credits for the code goes to the awesome Django project.


  1. Install django-reset with pip:

    pip install django-reset
  2. Add 'django_reset' to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:


Usage reset <appname appname …>

Executes the equivalent of sqlreset for the given app name(s).

The --noinput option may be provided to suppress all user prompts.

The --database option can be used to specify the alias of the database to reset. sqlreset <appname appname …>

Prints the DROP TABLE SQL, then the CREATE TABLE SQL, for the given app name(s).

The --database option can be used to specify the database for which to print the SQL.
