  • v0.3.0 to v0.4.0

We used django-south to change the existing models. Do this:

~$ cd django_sync_server_env
~/django_sync_server_env$ source bin/activate
(django_sync_server_env)~/django_sync_server_env$ pip install South
(django_sync_server_env)~/django_sync_server_env$ cd src/django-sync-server/testproject
(django_sync_server_env)~/django_sync_server_env/src/django-sync-server/testproject$ ./manage.py syncdb
(django_sync_server_env)~/django_sync_server_env/src/django-sync-server/testproject$ ./manage.py migrate weave 0001 --fake
(django_sync_server_env)~/django_sync_server_env/src/django-sync-server/testproject$ ./manage.py migrate weave

Note: After South install, you must insert "south" in INSTALLED_APPS list in our own settings.py see also: https://github.com/jedie/django-sync-server/commit/452668fb671662a15da2faf1e1c1f642d744b5dc#diff-1
