Better string field for Django.

Project Description

A field intended for strings that typically has a length less than 500 characters. django-stringfield tries to not to enforce length on database level if possible but different databases have different limitations. Currently implemented as:

PostgreSQL
character varying
MySQL
VARCHAR (65528) [1]
Oracle
VARCHAR2 (4000)
SQLite & Other backends
TEXT

Installation

pip install django-stringfield

Usage

You use this just like the normal django.db.models.CharField except that the key word argument max_length works a little differently:

  • It is optional and defaults to 500
  • It only enforces max length on the default formfield not on the database.

Example:

# models.py
from stringfield import StringField

class MyModel(models.Model):
    name = StringField()
[1]MySQL >= 5.0.3 should be able to handle a maximum length of 65535 but that does not work in my empirical testing using mysql 5.1.41 where 65528 is the maximum considering NULL and NOT NULL.
