Height / Weight fields for Django models & forms with unit conversion

Project description

Custom model fields to store, retrieve and convert measurements of height, weight and more…

Authored by Basil Shubin, and some great contributors.


pip install django-unitology

External dependencies

  • jQuery - this is not included in the package since it is expected that in most scenarios this would already be available.


Add unitology to INSTALLED_APPS:


Update your file:

urlpatterns += [
    url(r'^unitology/', include('unitology.urls')),

When deploying on production server, don’t forget to run:

python collectstatic



from django.db import models
from django.contrib import admin

from unitology.models import UnitsFieldMixin
from unitology.fields import WeightField, HeightField
from unitology.forms import UnitsFieldFormMixin

class Person(UnitsFieldMixin):

    name = models.CharField(max_length=128)

    weight = WeightField(blank=True, null=True)
    height = HeightField(blank=True, null=True)

class PersonChangeForm(UnitsFieldFormMixin):

    class Meta:
        model = Person

class PersonAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    form = PersonChangeForm, PersonAdmin)

Please see example application. This application is used to manually test the functionalities of this package. This also serves as a good example.

You need only Django 1.4 or above to run that. It might run on older versions but that is not tested.
