A simple Django model mixin for timestampable models

Project description

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.

The main difference between this plugin and the many others out there that do the same, is that Django Timestampable Models updated 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.

Quick start

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

    some_attribute = CharField()


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


No dependencies. Tested on Django 1.9 with Python 2.7.*
