  • PostgreSQL >= 9.5 and Psycopg2 >= 2.5.4.
  • Available on pypi
  • Documentation

Running the tests

Running the tests only for the current environment, use make test

Attribution

Some concepts and code come from https://github.com/deschler/django-modeltranslation, which is in turn inspired by https://github.com/zmathew/django-linguo

We started this solution at Zostera because we did not like:

  • The way django-modeltranslation adds one field per language (and thus requires a migration when adding a language);
  • The unpredictability of the original field.

Since JSONB is supported by Postgres now, we developed this approach.
