django-generic-helpers 0.2.2

This app makes it easy to display a map for a given address
django-generic-helpers is a Django app that provides some snippets (such as abstract models and managers with some useful methods) to simplyfy creation of another pluggable apps.

Installation:

pip install django-generic-helpers

After you can add app 'generic_helpers' to your INSTALLED_APPS. If you aren't want to run test, you can skip this step.

Usage:

To use this app, just import GenericRelationModel class from generic_helpers.models package and inherit your model from it:

 from django.db import models from generic_helpers.models import GenericRelationModel

 class MyModel(GenericRelationModel):
 title = models.CharField(max_length=255)


Now MyModel class has content_object attribute and you can create MyModel instances using generic relation:

 >>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User
 >>> user = User.objects.get(pk=1)
 >>>
 >>> my_model = MyModel.objects.create(
 ... title = 'title',
 ... content_object = user,
 ... )
 >>>


In this example how you can see we have used User.

Also your model manager has a get_for_object method for quick filtering by content_object complex field:

 >>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User
 >>> user = User.objects.get(pk=1)
 >>>
 >>> models_for_user = MyModel.objects.get_for_object(user)
 >>>
