Description (last modified by Alex)

Myself and another discovered the following error with the code shown. In both cases we had quoted strings for reference class. In both cases importing the specific class and then referencing without the quotes solved the problem. I tried through IRC channel to get a resolution. Downloaded code, wiped out site-packages/django dir before running setup, took other suggestions. Nothing worked except removing the quotes as suggested on the django-users group. I am running Debian Etch final. Python 2.5 and Django 1.0.2, Apache2 with mod_python

Notice two people have reported this recently on django-users, both (I believe) mentioned they saw the problem only under mod_python/Apache, and not the development server, so there is something different about non-dev-server environment. I'm not sure the test environment can be used to completely mimic what's happening under Apache here. I could wish for a more minimal failing example, but before closing worksforme I think something like this needs to be tested under mod_python (or mod_wsgi), not just under dev server. I myself won't be able to do that for a few days yet, as I'm away from home and my test machines. If someone else does do that please post the minimal (failing or working) example of FK reference using quoted strings.

One of the posters who ran into this on the user's list did find that ticket also. The fix for that went in before 1.0 so I believe both posters already have it. That fix happens to only be relevant when DEBUG is set to True: the traceback there was from the admin validation routine which is only called when DEBUG is on, and the fix that went in also applies only when DEBUG is on. At least one of the posters who ran into this recently specifically noted it only happened with DEBUG=False, and under Apache, not the dev server.

comment:5 Changed 6 years ago by ramiro

I have been able to reproduce this with Django trunk r9984 + mod_python + Apache with this minimal setup:

A t10405 app:

# models.py
from django.db import models
from django.forms import ModelForm

class Extension(models.Model):
    context=models.ForeignKey('app2.station')

class ExtensionForm(ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = Extension
# admin.py
from t10405.models import Extension
from django.contrib import admin

admin.site.register(Extension)

The 'app2' application has only a models.py file:

# models.py
from django.db import models

class station(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=10)

urls.py has only the admin app activated (no app URLs).

Bug shows itself when accessing the main admin page and shows as a pure text traceback when DEBUG= False.

Note how t10405's admin.py imports models.py and this one contains a ModelForm -derived class (this is also visible in the OP's traceback). Key thing here for the bug appearing is the ExtensionForm's Meta inner-class definition because replacing the ExtensionForm body with pass or completely commenting out ExtensionForm so only the ModelForm import is left makes the bug disappear.

The traceback:

Mod_python error: "PythonHandler django.core.handlers.modpython"

It's worth noting that the other user reporting this on django-users (http://groups.google.com/group/django-users/browse_frm/thread/ae22023a61290c1e) also defined a ModelForm subclass but in an admin.py file.

Trying to execute syncdb also shows the bug (even with DEBUG = False) but with a different code path:

Confirming that happens to me as well in the 1.1 beta 1, freshly installed. I also can show an identical case (except for declaration order) which doesn't cause the problem.

This arrangement causes the AttributeError:

class ClassA(models.Model):
    ref = models.ForeignKey("ClassB")

class ClassAForm(ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model=ClassA

class ClassB(models.Model):
    pass

This arrangement does not:

class ClassA(models.Model):
    ref = models.ForeignKey("ClassB")

class ClassB(models.Model):
    pass

class ClassAForm(ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model=ClassA

Hope this helps.

The good news is that there's an easy workaround, so we can punt this to the 1.2 release. For now, just make sure you define ModelForms after Models.

The bad news is that this is going to be very hard to fix.

comment:11 Changed 6 years ago by mkibbel

I've been having a similar problem recently with one of my projects. The AttributeError gets raised inside the call to admin.autodiscover() in my urls.py, similar to bugs described in #8569. Due to model interdependencies, I have to to use lazy model referencing with quoted strings for some of the FK and M2M relationships in my project.

I never ran into this AttributeError until I turned DEBUG off. After reading through these tickets and pouring through some of the Django source code, I came up with a simple workaround for my particular problem. Just add this to urls.py before calling admin.autodiscover():

from django.db.models.loading import cache as model_cache
if not model_cache.loaded:
    model_cache.get_models()

My reasoning for this is explained briefly in the next comment.

comment:12 Changed 6 years ago by mkibbel

In admin.autodiscover(), the AttributeError is occurring when a model form class is being created when Django translates django.forms field objects for each of the django.db.models field objects defined in the model (see the django.forms.models.ModelFormMetaclass.__new__() function). This process ends up calling each model field's formfield() method to perform the translation.

The formfield() implementation in ForeignKey, OneToOneField and ManyToManyField each refer to self.rel.to. Until all of the models are completely loaded and lazy model references are resolved, self.rel.to may still be a string and not a model class. The change from a string to a model class object happens in a lazy callback set up in django.db.models.fields.related.RelatedField.contribute_to_class():

other = self.rel.to # NOTE: still a string for lazy model references
if isinstance(other, basestring):
    def resolve_related_class(field, model, cls):
        field.rel.to = model
        field.do_related_class(model, cls)
    add_lazy_relation(cls, self, other, resolve_related_class)
else:
    self.do_related_class(other, cls)

See the definition of add_lazy_relation() and do_pending_lookups(), the signals.class_prepared handler, in this module for more details.

You have to prevent a field's self.rel.to attribute from being used until after lazy model resolution for its model is complete. By using the model cache API defined in django.db.models.loading, you can guarantee that all models are loaded before admin.autodiscover() loads and registers the admin classes.

One simple change to admin.autodiscover() could resolve this problem, but I'm not sure what other implications it would have. autodiscover() searches for admin.py modules by importing each application module defined in settings.INSTALLED_APPS and checking if an admin module exists. This code could use the model caching API instead to retrieve the application modules, so we'd be replacing:

for app in settings.INSTALLED_APPS:
    # process apps (strings)


with:

for app in model_cache.get_apps():
    # process apps (module objects)

get_apps() loads all models before returning, so we can be sure that all the models are ready before any of the admin imports happen. The admin class creation process will load all the model classes, so I don't think it would hurt performance to pre-load them. It is possible that this change would cause other unexpected side effects in some projects.

That solution is a no-solution. The problem is a technical limitation of the Django/Python combination and very hard to fix. The correct workaround is to change the dependencies between forms and classes that access happens after the model was finalized.

comment:21 Changed 5 years ago by camilonova

I just realize that this error doesnt happen when i use a file named admin.py. This file contains all the admin related, extracting it from models.py you should check if this solves all kinds of problems related to this ticket. There's no need to make any changes to urls.py as well, just using the admin.py file works great for me.

Interestingly, I've noticed this AttributeError is not raised if the quoted class name passed to the ForeignKey is 'auth.User'…perhaps because 'django.contrib.auth' is usually the first installed app in INSTALLED_APPS?

comment:28 Changed 4 years ago by camilonova

  • Version changed from 1.2 to 1.3

I recently have this error too using django 1.3. I have defined ModelForms in my views.py and i was importing them in my urls.py so that could be the cause of the problem. Later i try to change my generic views to class based views, but still have the problem because in my views.py where i defined my class based views i also import the ModelForms and it stills give me this error, so changing to class based views was not the solution.

At IRC someone tell me to try to declare my views as strings instead of importing them in my urls.py (not working with class based views) and that solves the problem, because when reading the urls.py there is no direct imports from views.py.

The problem could be when the ModelForm class is getting the information about the model.

Reading all the comments and workarounds does not work for me.

I dont have admin.py and the only place where i import ModelForms is at views.py

Small grammar nitpick:

I'm using Django 1.3.3 and the steps to reproduce are the same mentioned in comment 8.

I got this same error too with Django 1.4.2, uwsgi and nginx

Maybe the changes were reverted or something?

I've just tested this with a setup like comment:42 suggest: The one pasted in comment:8. I did it with both trunk as of now and 1.4.2. The problematic setup doesn't even allow me to run syncdb. If I change the models/modelform ordering to the one that works, run syncdb and then change it back to the problematic one the error message introduced with the fix for this ticket is shown inmediately when running the dev server. The message is always:

ValueError: Cannot create form field for 'ref' yet, because its related model 'ClassB' has not been loaded yet

I tested with DEBUG set both to True and False.

Guys, you will need to provide much more detail, as in a simple setup that demonstrates the purported regression if you want anyone to dedicate any more time to this. Also, please open a new ticket for that, commenting on a closed ticket isn't a good way to get things going either.

For anyone else who ran into this: for me this occurred because I had a form import in my main urls.py file, to pass a form to a built in view by Django. That forms.py file had a ModelForm and the model it was associated with had a foreign key using a string for the model (because of earlier import errors). This didn't happen on 1.4, but it occurred when I upgraded Django to 1.5. I fixed this by moving my form import line beneath the admin.autodiscover() line.
