Django Scripts Tracker
An unofficial Django utility tool that tracks management scripts execution.
What does it mean “to track script execution”?
Scripts tracker watches manage.py scripts located in your_app/management/commands directory and just after you pull some new code and apply its migrations - you will get notified about new (or modified) manage.py scripts that should be applied for the project to work properly.
Quick feature preview
Step 1 - decorate your management script handle() method with @tracked_script decorator and push it to repository:
class Command(BaseCommand): help = 'Some sample script help text' @tracked_script def handle(self, *args, **options): # (...)
Step 2 - anyone who pulls your changes and runs migrations, will get a notification message:
$ python manage.py migrate (...) Running migrations: (...) Checking management scripts: You have 1 new and 0 modified management scripts to be applied. New scripts (1): your_app/management/commands/sample_management_script.py Some sample script help text
Install the app using pip package manager:
pip install django-scripts-tracker
Add django_scripts_tracker to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:
# your_app/settings.py INSTALLED_APPS = [ # (...) 'django_scripts_tracker', ]
Run migrations in order to create tracker models:
python manage.py migrate
Configure directories that should be scanned for management scripts:
# your_app/settings.py COMMANDS_DIRS = [ 'your_app/management/commands', 'another_app/management/commands', ]
How to add a new tracked script?
- Create a new management script under a tracked (...)/management/commands/ directory (tracked directories are defined in COMMANDS_DIRS).
- Decorate either handle() or handle_noargs() Command method with a @tracked_script decorator.
- Make sure that the created script file is not ingored and is within a tracked directory.
How to check if there are unapplied scripts?
Script checking process takes place every time you perform DB migrations, but you can also invoke it manually:
python manage.py check_scripts
How to mark scripts as “applied” ones?
Scripts are automatically marked as applied ones just after their execution.
If there are some scripts that have already been applied but the tracker lists them - it is possible to mark them manually as applied ones.
To mark scripts as “applied” ones type in the following command:
python manage.py check_scripts --mark-all-applied
