Dynamic model definition and alteration (evolving schemas)
branch: master



Dynamic model definition and alteration (evolving schemas).


Django provides a great ORM and with the power of South one can easily perform schema alteration.

However, some projects may require runtime schema alteration and that's what django-mutant ought to provide.

The main concept was inspired by those projects:


pip install django-mutant

Make sure 'django.contrib.contenttypes' and 'mutant' are in your INSTALLED_APPS

INSTALLED_APPS += ('django.contrib.contenttypes', 'mutant')


Direction of the project

django-mutant is actually using South under the hood to provide schema migrations. Since the schema editor code is being merged into the main Django code base the next major version of mutant will rely on it instead thus dropping the external dependency on South.

Get in touch and contribute

From now on I think the best way to contribute and get in touch is using github messaging system (issues and pull requests).

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
