#10091 closed (fixed)

QuerySet documentation of slicing syntax misleading/incomplete

Reported by: adrian_nye Owned by: jacob
Component: Documentation Version: 1.0
Severity: Keywords: QuerySet
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:

Description

Doc says: "Use Python's array-slicing syntax to limit your QuerySet to a certain number of results."

Should say: "Use a subset of Python's array-slicing syntax to limit your QuerySet to a certain number of results."

Should also say: specifically mention that it doesn't accept negative indexes. [-1] does not work for example.

Would be nice: give an example of how to return the last (single) item in a queryset. A good example would be: return the item with the most
recent datetime.
