Build Status

Django Dynamic Model provides models which can be modified (fields added, or removed) at runtime, from the code, without changing SQL database schema.

The dynamic fields can coexist with regular fields, can be picked up and used by model forms, and can be accessed in the usual object.field fashion in the code and templates.

The dynamic models aren't schemaless: valid fields are defined using DynamicSchema and DynamicSchemaField models.

Here's a quick example:

from dynamicmodel.models import DynamicModel, DynamicSchema, DynamicForm

class MyModel(DynamicModel):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=100)  # regular field

schema = DynamicSchema.get_for_model(MyModel)
schema.add_field(name='nickname', type='CharField')
schema.add_field(name='age', type='IntegerField')

m1 = MyModel(name='John Doe')
print m1.nickname # None
m1.nickname = 'JD'
m1.age = 21

m1.save()

class MyForm(DynamicForm):
    class Meta:
        model = MyModel

form = MyForm({'field': 'foo'}, instance=m1)
form.save()

Installation

Install via pip directly from GitHub:

pip install -e git+http://github.com/dobarkod/django-dynamic-model#egg=django-dynamic-model

Tests and docs

Documentation is sparse at the moment. Look at the tests for examples how to use it (beyond the quick example above).

Warning

Caveat emptor: This is beta software; the API will change a lot, and it may still have serious bugs that will eat your data! All bug reports, fixes, suggestions or pull requests are welcome.
