Feature Grouping


This page was created as a way to collect tickets, wiki pages, etc. that have similar goals. A ticket keyword just isn't enough sometimes. Add a group, description, analysis, and/or links about a feature you are interested in. If there is too much information about the feature to fit on this page, then create a wiki page dedicated to that feature and link to it here.

Please note that there is already a grouping of VersionOneFeatures.

auto_now and auto_now_add

Deprecate auto_now and auto_now_add and document alternatives
Prevent a migration changing DateTimeField(auto_now_add=True) to default=timezone.now from generating SQL

Incorrect SQL construction

There are a bunch of these, so here's a placeholder for them. Many are already assigned to mtredinnick; the remainder should be. I'm working on a rewrite of the query creation portion of QuerySets -- Malcolm.

Current manipulator tickets should be tested with newforms to make sure the problems aren't repeated

Feature requests that need a decision on whether or not to add to newforms

Tickets still need to be looked at: http://code.djangoproject.com/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&summary=%7EManipulator&order=priority


There are a few tickets aiming to add features to the Paginator class, and even a new implementation by Adrian in #1374. There is also code for a PaginatorTag.

Optimisation idea for Paginator object
Refactor the admin paginator customizations to make them reuseable
Error messages customization and internationalization in Paginator class
Ease locating origin of queryset paginator warnings
Document (deprecate?) Paginator._get_page

No results

Splitting models into separate files



admin list_editable with unique_together raises Integrity Error
TextField with unique (or in unique_together) constraint breaks for large inputs in Postgres
Unable to have abstract model with unique_together
Cannot drop unique_together constraint on a single field with its own unique=True constraint
Invalid migration generated when using order_with_respect_to and a unique_together constraint
Migration using CreateModel with unique_together followed by AlterUniqueTogether crashes
Moving a unique constraint from unique_together to Field.unique generate an invalid migration.

Web services / REST


  • Models CRUD via web services (#115) with a lot of duplicates
  • [patch] XMLRPC support for django (#547) for part of a solution (set as duplicate of #115)
