django-autoslug 1.9.3

An automated slug field for Django.

Package Documentation

Django-autoslug is a reusable Django library that provides an improved slug field which can automatically:

  1. populate itself from another field,
  2. preserve uniqueness of the value and
  3. use custom slugify() functions for better i18n.

The field is highly configurable.

Requirements

Python 2.7, 3.5 or PyPy.

Django 1.7.10 or higher.

It may be possible to successfully use django-autoslug in other environments but they are not tested.

Note

PyPy3 is not officially supported only because there were some problems with permissions and __pycache__ on CI unrelated to django-autoslug itself.

Examples

A simple example:

from django.db.models import CharField, Model
from autoslug import AutoSlugField

class Article(Model):
    title = CharField(max_length=200)
    slug = AutoSlugField(populate_from='title')

More complex example:

from django.db.models import CharField, DateField, ForeignKey, Model
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from autoslug import AutoSlugField

class Article(Model):
    title = CharField(max_length=200)
    pub_date = DateField(auto_now_add=True)
    author = ForeignKey(User)
    slug = AutoSlugField(populate_from=lambda instance: instance.title,
                         unique_with=['author__name', 'pub_date__month'],
                         slugify=lambda value: value.replace(' ','-'))
