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.
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() 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)
