CookBook - Data Models - Splitting models across multiple files
To split models across multiple files, you can do the following (works at least with revision 2819):
The important thing to notice here is the app_label attribute in the Meta class. If that is omitted, a subsequent manage.py syncdb run will not pick up these models.
from poll import Poll from choice import Choice
from django.db import models class Poll(models.Model): question = models.CharField(maxlength=200) pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published') class Meta: app_label = 'polls'
from django.db import models from poll import Poll class Choice(models.Model): poll = models.ForeignKey(Poll) choice = models.CharField(maxlength=200) votes = models.IntegerField() class Meta: app_label = 'polls'
Ok so the example is a bit stupid but it should illustrate the point.
