Project description

A package to help bridge the gap between Django’s Forms and VueFormGenerator’s Schemas using DjangoRestFramework.


The full documentation is at


Install Django-VueFormGenerator:

pip install django-vueformgenerator

Then use it in a project:

from django_vueformgenerator.schema import Schema
from django import forms
import json

class TestForm(forms.Form):
    title = forms.CharField(max_length=128)
    content = forms.TextField(max_length=1280)

form = TestForm()  # or TestForm(data={'title':'My Title'})
schema = Schema().render(form)

Running Tests

Does the code actually work?

source <YOURVIRTUALENV>/bin/activate
(myenv) $ pip install -r requirements_test.txt
(myenv) $ python


Tools used in rendering this package:


0.2.3 (2016-11-03)

  • Add support for dotted models. Use this feature by defining your Form with a field that has a name with double-underscores (e.g. “foo__bar__baz”, which will become “” in the schema’s model field).

0.2.2 (2016-11-01)

  • Fix implementation of using initial data in forms. Previously, if you used CharField(initial=’foo’) then this information would not be preserved when creating the schema.

0.2.1 (2016-10-27)

  • Fix bug in tests so that the tests run successfully in Python 2.7.

0.2.0 (2016-10-25)

  • Add ability to use existing data in form
  • DEPRECATED: Any code which previously used Schema().render(MyForm) should now use Schema().render(MyForm()) (in other words, render() accepts an instance of a form, rather than a form itself). To check if you are calling the function against contract, you can run your code with python -Wd (e.g. python -Wd runserver).

0.1.1 (2016-10-18)

  • Add additional tests for schema generation
  • Add components for numbers and for selecting between choices
  • Add Python 2 support
  • Add better documentation
  • Fix exception raised on bad widget

0.1.0 (2016-10-11)

  • First release on PyPI.
