A simple Django model mixin for timestampable models

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/achedeuzot/django-timestampable.svg?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/github/achedeuzot/django-timestampable/badge.svg?branch=master

Django Timestampable model is a simple enhancement mixin that enables Django models to have a created_at and updated_at field that is always updated.

This has been done under many plugins BUT the main difference between this plugin and the many others out there that do the same, is that Django Timestampable Models update the updated_at field under any circumstance: fixture loading, bulk updates, etc. whereas traditional Timestampable mixins only provide shorthand for auto_add and auto_add_now shortcuts for DateTimeField s.

It achieves this by using Django signals.

Quick start

  1. Add “django_timestampable” to your INSTALLED_APPS settings like this:
INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'django_timestampable',
]
  1. Add TimestampableModel in your Model s like so:
class Stuff(TimestampableModel):

    some_attribute = CharField()

    ...

3. Run python manage.py makemigrations then python manage.py migrate to add the columns to your models in your database.

Requirements

No dependencies.

Tested on Django 1.9.9, 1.10.1 with Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5
