#35377 closed New feature (wontfix)

Add past and future validators for Date and DateTime fields

I often see that validating date fields is quite repetitive, for example like this:

def validate_expiration_date(self, value: date) -> date:
        if value <=
            raise serializers.ValidationError("Expiration Date must be in future")

        return value

I thought maybe it would be good to have such validation rules out of the box of Django, such as FutureDateValidator(), PastDateValidator().
