Raise error when ModelSerializer used with abstract model #2757


Copy link

@ekiourk ekiourk commented Mar 23, 2015

Closes #2630

Raising an exception (ValueError) if an abstract model is used with a ModelSerializer. The check is happening in get_fields method of the ModelSerializer immediately after some other similar checks.

Do you think is better to make the checks earlier? Maybe in the constructor?

Given a model class, returns a boolean True if it is abstract and False if it is not.
return hasattr(model, 'Meta') and hasattr(model._meta, 'abstract') and model._meta.abstract

This should be checking hasattr(model, '_meta') (not 'Meta').
