Project description

# Djember Model

This project is aimed at automatically generating EmberJS models from Django REST Framework serializer definitions.
This can be done in 2 different ways:

- on-the-fly generation
- on-disk files generation

## installation

Install using pip:

pip install djember_model

Add djember_model to your `INSTALLED_APPS`:



## Usage

### On-the-fly generation

In order to generate js files on the fly, you'll have import the urls from the project add add them to your urlpatterns.


from djember_model import urls as djember_urls, settings as djember_settings

urlpatterns = [
url(r'^models/', include(djember_urls, namespace=djember_settings.URL_NAMESPACE)),

For each `ViewSet` (Ember expects the same endpoint for CRUD operations, so it's better to use `ViewSet`'s) registered on your router, this will provide a corresponding ember js model.

If you have registered the following Viewset:
```router.register('categories', CategoryViewSet)```

The corresponding (ES5) Ember model definition will now be available at http://localhost:8000/models/categories.js

This functionality is meant to be used with [ember-cli-dynamic-model]( and the recommended usage is to register all your `ViewSet`'s using the <app_name><model_name_correct_english_plural> as in `my_app/categories`.

### On-disk files generation

`djember_model` also provides a management command to generate (ES6) Ember models on disk:

```./ export_to_ember route_registered_with_the_router```

So assuming you have registered the following ViewSet:

```router.register('sample/categories', CategoryViewSet)```

you can run:

```./ export_to_ember sample/categories```

in order to generate the corresponding model.
This command will generate 3 files in you ember app:

- `app/models/sample/base/` <- always generated
- `app/models/sample/` <- only generate the file if it doen't exist yet
- `tests/unit/models/sample/` <- always generated

The fields or attributes definition will be generated in `app/models/sample/base/`; `app/models/sample/` inherits from the first file and is the place where you should add any customization to your Ember model.

## Configuration

`djember_model` comes with a series of settings that can (should) be customized:


*Default value*: ``'urls.router'`

*Used by*: Dynamic & on-disk generation

The python path to the router on which you registered your `ViewSet`'s


*Default value*: `'djember'`

*Used by*: Dynamic generation only

The name of your ember application or `modulePrefix` (found in `config/environment.js` in your ember app folder)


*Default value*: `'../front'`

*Used by*: On-disk generation only

Relative path from your Django project base to your Ember application base


*Default value*:
'BooleanField': 'boolean',
'NullBooleanField': 'boolean',
'IntegerField': 'number',
'FloatField': 'number',
'DecimalField': 'number',
'ListField': None,
'DictField': None,
'JSONField': None,

*Used by*: Dynamy & on-disk generation

Mapping from Django Model fields to ember-data attr types. Any missing mapping will be mapped as `string`. If you are using custom transforms in Ember, you probably want to update these mappings.
