Django Smuggler

https://travis-ci.org/semente/django-smuggler.svg?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/semente/django-smuggler/badge.png?branch=master

Django Smuggler is a pluggable application for Django Web Framework to easily dump/load fixtures via the automatically-generated administration interface. A fixture is file with model data serialized to e.g. JSON or XML that Django knows how to import to the database.

Smuggler is especially useful for transporting database data between production and development environments, but can also be used as a backup tool.

Installing & Setup

Smuggler is in the Python Package Index (PyPI) and you can easily install the latest stable version of it using the tools pip or easy_install. Try:

pip install django-smuggler

or:

easy_install django-smuggler

Alternatively, you can install Smuggler from source code running the follow command on directory that contains the file setup.py:

python setup.py install

After installation you need configure your project to recognizes the Smuggler application adding 'smuggler' to your INSTALLED_APPS setting and setup the project URLConf like follow:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    # ...
    (r'^admin/', include('smuggler.urls')),  # before admin url patterns!
    (r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),
)

Then try access these urls:

If you can access the URLs above, the application was setup correctly. Note that these URLs are accessible only by superusers.

Smuggler also provides a template to show buttons for dump and load data on change list page (change_list.html). You can setup the ModelAdmin you are interested like follow:

class ExampleAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    change_list_template = 'smuggler/change_list.html'
    ...

Settings

Smuggler has the following settings available. You can set them in your project settings.py. If you doesn't set them it will assume the default values:

SMUGGLER_EXCLUDE_LIST
List of models to be excluded from dump. Use the form 'app_label.ModelName'. Default: [].
SMUGGLER_FIXTURE_DIR
Uploaded fixtures are stored in this directory (if requested). Default: None.
SMUGGLER_FORMAT
Format for dumped files. Any of the serialization formats supported by Django, json, xml and in some cases yaml. Default: 'json'.
SMUGGLER_INDENT
Indentation for dumped files. Default: 2.
