    def __str__(self):
        return "%s, %s"%(self.name, self.date)
class BarTime(models.Model):
    objects = jmodels.jManager()
    name =  models.CharField(max_length=200)
    datetime = jmodels.jDateTimeField()
    def __str__(self):
        return "%s, %s" %(self.name, self.datetime)

>>> from foo.models import BarTime
>>> BarTime(name="Bar Time now", datetime=jdatetime.datetime(1380,8,2,12,12,12)).save()
>>> BarTime.objects.filter(datetime__lt= jdatetime.datetime(1380,8,2,12,12,12 ))
[]
>>> BarTime.objects.filter(datetime__lte= jdatetime.datetime(1380,8,2,12,12,12 ))
[<BarTime: Bar Time now, 1380-08-0212:12:12>]
>>> BarTime.objects.filter(datetime__gt='1380-08-02')
[<BarTime: Bar Time now, 1380-08-0212:12:12>]
>>> BarTime.objects.filter(datetime__gt=d)
[]
>>> BarTime.objects.filter(datetime__year=1380)
[<BarTime: Bar Time now, 1380-08-0212:12:12>]

Using Templatetags

  1. You can use jformat filter to format your dates in templates:
{% load jformat %}
{{ my_date|jformat }} {# default formatting #}
{{ my_date|jformat:"%A %d %B %Y %H:%M" }} {# specific formatting #}

Admin Interface

  1. Create foo/admin.py
from foo.models import Bar,BarTime
from django.contrib import admin

from django_jalali.admin.filters import JDateFieldListFilter

#you need import this for adding jalali calander widget
import django_jalali.admin as jadmin

class BarAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    list_filter = (
        ('date', JDateFieldListFilter),
    )


admin.site.register(Bar, BarAdmin)

class BarTimeAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    list_filter = (
        ('datetime', JDateFieldListFilter),
    )

admin.site.register(BarTime, BarTimeAdmin)
  1. Config admin interface and fire up your django and enjoy using jalali date !

Locale

In order to get the date string in farsi you need to set the locale to fa_IR

There are two ways to do achieve that, you can use of the approaches based on your needs

  • Run server with LC_ALL env:
$ LC_ALL=fa_IR python manage.py runserver
  • Set the locale in settings.py
LANGUAGE_CODE = 'fa-ir'
import locale
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "fa_IR")
