However, some projects may require runtime schema alteration and that's what django-mutant provides.
The main concept was inspired by those projects:
Direction of the project
The project is still in an early phase but a couple of complex things already works such as declaration of
ManyToManyField) between models and an easy way of declaring subclasses of
FieldDefinition which allow any
Field subclass to be be represented easily:
class DateFieldDefinition(FieldDefinition): auto_now = fields.BooleanField(_(u'auto now'), default=False) auto_now_add = fields.BooleanField(_(u'auto_now_add'), default=False) class Meta: app_label = 'mutant' defined_field_class = fields.DateField defined_field_options = ('auto_now', 'auto_now_add',) defined_field_category = _(u'datetime')
This approach also allows projects such as django-non-rel to be truly useful since both your schema and your ORM wrapper around it are flexible.
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)
Development version can be installed from pip:
pip install django-mutant==dev.
