Description (last modified by Jens L.)

Django 2's creation of SQLite indicies doesn't escape the index name, which causes issues when you use for example '/' in your app_labels.

Offending file is db/backends/sqlite3/ , line 18.

If said line is swapped with this:

    sql_create_unique = "CREATE UNIQUE INDEX \"%(name)s\" ON %(table)s (%(columns)s)"

creation of indices works fine.

Update: This also happens on MySQL (tested on Python 3.5.3, Django 2.0, PyMySQL 0.7.11

As documented, app labels should be a valid Python identifiers.

I'm afraid that excludes slashes.

python3 -c "assert 'foo/bar'.isidentifier()"
