An extension to the Django web framework that provides comprehensive version control facilities

Project description

django-reversion is an extension to the Django web framework that provides comprehensive version control facilities.


  • Roll back to any point in a model’s history - an unlimited undo facility!
  • Recover deleted models - never lose data again!
  • Admin integration for maximum usability.
  • Group related changes into revisions that can be rolled back in a single transaction.
  • Automatically save a new version whenever your model changes using Django’s flexible signalling framework.
  • Automate your revision management with easy-to-use middleware.

django-reversion can be easily added to your existing Django project with an absolute minimum of code changes.

If you’re upgrading your existing installation of django-reversion, please check the [Schema Migrations][] wiki page for information on any database changes and how to upgrade. If you’re using South to manage database migrations in your project, then upgrading is as easy as running a few django management commands.

It’s always worth checking the [CHANGELOG][] before upgrading too, just in case you get caught off-guard my a minor upgrade to the library.
