Hints for updating app from older smarter

Base API changes

  • name_prefix -> prefix
  • SmarterSite -> Site
  • smarter.views.GenericViews -> smarter.GenericViews
  • register(views_or_model, generic_views=None) -> register(views, model)

URLs paths

Define 'url' for custom actions (search for urls_custom).

URLs names

  • prefix='([^']+)-' -> prefix='1'

Template paths:

  • Move templates to new paths:

  • or redefine 'template' in defaults, e.g:



Now defined in options as 'decorators' tuple/list, no 'method_decorator' needed.


Define 'ajax' handler in options.


GenericViews.check_permissions() is not called anymore, use 'permissions' options and GenericViews.{action}__perm methods.

Form save

GenericViews.save_form() is not called anymore, use GenericViews.{action}__save methods.


  • {action}_view -> {action}
  • {action} method should return dict instead if HttpResponse
  • no self.process_form() - it's not needed anymore
  • update_context is not called anymore, use {action}__post methods
  • no render_to_response method anymore, use Django render shortcut with GenericViews.get_templates method
  • get_object and get_objects_list require request object as first argument
  • deny method requires request object as argument
  • form_params_[action] -> [action]'s 'form' in result dict
You can’t perform that action at this time.
