This code adds a few small extensions to Django’s DateField, to handle both approximate dates (e.g. “March 1963”) and default year dates (e.g. assume “24th June” is the most recent such).
example contains a hopefully self-contained Django project that simply shows off a form with these methods of entry.
A new object, ApproximateDate, is used to represent dates that might not have a month or a day. ApproximateDateField is the model field used to represent these objects in a Model, and ApproximateDateFormField is the field used in a Django form. Everything should work seamlessly simply by specifying a model field as ApproximateDateField rather than DateField.
Default year dates
PrettyDateField is a form field to be used on DateField model fields. It takes one argument, future, which is a nullable boolean. If True, a date input that is missing a year will be taken to be the next possible occurrence of that date - e.g. on 24th November 2009, entering 24th December will be taken to be 2009-12-24, whilst entering 3rd March will be taken to be 2010-03-03. If future is False, the reverse occurs, with year-less dates being assumed to be the closest occurrence of that date in the past.
If future is not set, then PrettyDateField acts the same as a DateField, only allows suffixes on ordinals, and assumes D/M/Y rather than M/D/Y.
Run ‘tox’ with tox installed.
Improve date parsing to take more inputs like my traintimes.org.uk PHP, such as “next Friday”.
Any queries or comments, do get in touch. Something’s probably broken, as I tried to tidy up the code a little for public release :)
