django-qmethod

django-qmethod is a library for easily defining operations on collections of Django models (that is, QuerySets and Managers).

One day, I hope something like this is included in Django core.

Usage

Basic usage is as follows:

import cPickle as pickle
from django.db import models
from djqmethod import Manager, querymethod

class Group(models.Model):
    pass

class Person(models.Model):
    GENDERS = dict(m='Male', f='Female', u='Unspecified').items()

    group = models.ForeignKey(Group, related_name='people')
    gender = models.CharField(max_length=1, choices=GENDERS)
    age = models.PositiveIntegerField()

    # Note: you need to create an explicit manager here.
    objects = Manager()

    @querymethod
    def minors(query):
        return query.filter(age__lt=18)

    @querymethod
    def adults(query):
        return query.filter(age__gte=18)

# The `minors()` and `adults()` methods will be available on the manager:
assert isinstance(Person.objects.minors(), models.query.QuerySet)

# They'll be available on subsequent querysets:
assert isinstance(Person.objects.filter(gender='m').minors(),
                  models.query.QuerySet)

# They'll also be available on relations, if you use the djqmethod.Manager as
# the default manager for the related model.
group = Group.objects.all()[0]
assert isinstance(group.people.minors(), models.query.QuerySet)

# The QuerySets produced are totally pickle-safe:
assert isinstance(pickle.loads(pickle.dumps(Person.objects.minors())),
                  models.query.QuerySet)

A test project is located in test/example/; consult this for a more comprehensive example.
