Better string field for Django.

Project description

A string field that tries not to enforce length on database level. Currently implemented as:

character varying
VARCHAR (65528) 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.
SQLite & Other backends


pip install django-stringfield


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 255
  • It only enforces max length on the default formfield not on the database.


from stringfield import StringField

class MyModel(models.Model):
    name = StringField()
