Feature description


Adding a new data type Range would allow to model attributes meant to hold two values.

Examples include:

  • weight for child diapers (6kg - 10kg)
  • age for toys (2yr - 5yr)
  • operational temperature (-30°C - 40°C)


Note: this is not the same as existing min/max values because they're used to constrain a single value, this is meant to specify min/max as a single property. We should still have min/max to constrain (lower end must be >= min, <= higher end, higher end must be <= max).


Same as above, with a (single) unit attached. Since all my examples actually include units, this makes more sense to have, but for completeness sake, I've included the plain Range type too.

Another type could be ...


... which returns a CarbonPeriod object.

Hello @aarongerig
I like pretty much the idea to have new "range" data type for number and for dates.
Dates especially because this is a pain actually for project where you need to manage booking for instance ; )

Actually the work around are two fieds and check in the save of the model the value are coherent, if not send an error message. You can do it in preSave event.
