Python - Favorite Django Tips & Features. Django_session. Django_User. Django_apps. - Luc Stepniewski's Blog. In a Django project, I have a template that is used by two urls, which is quite common (generic views, using ‘create_object’ and ‘update_object’).

- Luc Stepniewski's Blog

The problem is that I had to add a supplementary menu just when the template is loaded from the ‘update’ generic view, and not from the ‘create’ generic view. Making the difference between the two urls calls at the template level is a problem because it’s managed by generic views, so the same template is used. Anyways, there are several possibilities: In, use the ‘template_name’ variable, where you can speficy a specific template for this url(). That is instead of using the default <model>_form.html. Another solution, is to find a way to use a variable in the template that would be different wether the template has been loaded by update_object or create_object. Pinax : Package List.

Django. A Guide to Testing in Django - Toast Driven.

For many people, testing their Django applications is a mystery.

A Guide to Testing in Django - Toast Driven

They hear that they should be testing their code but often have no clue how to get started. And when they hit the testing docs, they find a deep dive on what functionality is available, but no guidance on how to implement. This is the first in a series of blog posts to try to help alleviate this & get everyone on the testing bandwagon.

10 Insanely Useful Django Tips

From basic to obscure, these tips can help any skill-level of programmer become more adept with Django and all it's glory. Django is an excellent framework for Python. While it may not get as much ink as other popular frameworks like Rails, it is just as much a polished framework as any of the rest. It puts plenty of emphasis on the DRY principle (Don't Repeat Yourself) in clean coding by automating many of the processes in programming.

For some reason, projects tend to be moved around in location from time to time. My default Django settings file has changed over time to now include settings that do not depend on the location of the project on the file system. Tutorials. General Tutorials ¶ Tutorials on Specific Topics: ¶ Note: ​Django snippets has plenty of code 'snippets' which do all sorts of useful things too.

Django Projects — Django Best Practices

We recommend keeping all your templates in the project template directory unless you plan on including your application in multiple projects (or developing it as a open source “reusable” application). In that case, it can be helpful to ship with a set of sample templates in the application, allowing it to work out-of-the-box or serving as an example for other developers. Naming. How and why to use django-mongokit (aka. Django to MongoDB) Here I'm going to explain how to combine Django and MongoDB using MongoKit and django-mongokit.

How and why to use django-mongokit (aka. Django to MongoDB)

MongoDB is a document store built for high speed and high concurrency with a very good redundancy story. It's an alternative to relational databases (e.g. MySQL) that is what Django is tightly coupled with in it's ORM (Object Relation Mapping) and what it's called now is ODM (Object Document Mapping) in lack of a better acronym. That's where MongoKit comes in. It's written in Python and it connects to the MongoDB database using a library called pymongo and it turns data from the MongoDB and turns it into instances of classes you have defined. So we start by defining a MongoKit subclass: All of these class attributes are features of MongoKit. As you can see it's pretty easy to work with and it just feels so pythonic and obvious.

The query methods one() and find() can take search parameters which limits what you get back.

The Django Book: Version 2.0 (English) Welcome to the online version of The Django Book, a free book about the Django Web framework for the Python programming language.

The Django Book: Version 2.0 (English)

A warning about this edition The community edition of The Django Book is in transition. While the book mentions Django version 1.4 in places, the vast majority of the book is for Django version 1.0, which was released over four years ago. Therefore this resource is extremely out of date and, until the book is finished being updated, we ask that, at this time, not be used for educational purposes.

Five Days to a Django Web App: Day Three, Coding - The Daily Build

[Note: Sorry this post is a day late. It was all ready to go late yesterday, but some of the code included below triggered a bug either in WordPress or ScribeFire and the whole post got mangled. I managed to resurrect it today from drafts, and I think it's coherent, but if you find some problem with it please drop me a note.] Progress So Far Yesterday we built some mockups, just HTML and CSS — nothing active.

Armed with these mockups, we’re ready to get started coding. Foundation. Documentation de Django — Documentation de Django 1.1.1. Index — Django Design Patterns. This is a collection of patterns which we have found occurring commonly with Django.

Index — Django Design Patterns

All of these either make collaboration easier, coding simpler or code more maintainable. None of them are design patterns in the sense of GoF design patterns. We call them design patterns as none other seem closer or more convenient. These are guidelines, which need to be overridden (very commonly, in some cases).
