Djangotoolbox, a common API for running Django on non-relational/NoSQL databases

Documentation at

In djangotoolbox.db you can find base classes for writing non-relational DB backends. Read `Writing a non-relational Django backend`_ for more information.

In djangotoolbox.fields you can find several common field types for non-relational DB backends (ListField, SetField, DictField, RawField, BlobField).

The djangotoolbox.admin module provides admin overrides for making django.contrib.auth work correctly in the admin UI. Simply add 'djangotoolbox' to INSTALLED_APPS after django.contrib.admin. This will disable features that require JOINs. If you still need permission handling you should use the nonrel permission backend.
