Project description

Django’s class based generic views are a great way to reuse code and avoid boilerplate. In Django, however, each view is associated with a single URL. If you want to reuse some behavior that involves multiple urls it is often necessary to synchronize many different views. Think about a CRUD interface: it is not necessarily hard, but it can be both tedious and error prone.

View packs gather a collection of views and url entry points together in a single reusable unity. Hence, instead of creating separate CreateView, DetailView, UpdateView, DeleteView, etc, we can simply subclass the CRUDViewPack view pack:

from viewpack import CRUDViewPack
from fooapp.models import FooModel

class FooCRUD(CRUDViewPack):
    model = FooModel

In your, register all CRUD views as an include:

from django.conf import url
from views import FooCRUD

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^foo/', FooCRUD.as_include(namespace='foo')),

Now you have registered a simple CRUD interface for your FooModel. The next step is to write the required templates and you’re done! (In fact, if you are lazy and use Jinja, we even offer a few ready to use templates!)
