Country-specific Django helpers for Germany.
This app has been superseded by the newly created django-localflavor app which recombines all the different country locaflavors again (after having been removed from Django). Development and maintenance of this app has stopped and is only left online as a reminder for the users of those apps. It will be removed after grace period of 1 Django release (~spring 2014).
- DEIdentityCardNumberField: A form field that validates input as a German identity card number (Personalausweis). Valid numbers have the format XXXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXX-XXXXXXX-X, with no group consisting entirely of zeroes.
- DEZipCodeField: A form field that validates input as a German zip code. Valid codes consist of five digits.
- DEStateSelect: A Select widget that uses a list of German states as its choices.
See the source code for full details.
Django's "localflavor" packages offer additional functionality for particular countries or cultures.
For example, these might include form fields for your country's postal codes, phone number formats or government ID numbers.
This code used to live in Django proper -- in django.contrib.localflavor -- but was separated into standalone packages in Django 1.5 to keep the framework's core clean.
