Extra class-based views for Django

Django's class-based generic views are great, they let you accomplish a large number of web application design patterns in relatively few lines of code. They do have their limits though, and that's what this library of views aims to overcome.

https://api.travis-ci.org/AndrewIngram/django-extra-views.png?branch=master https://pypip.in/d/django-extra-views/badge.png

Installation

Installing from github.

pip install -e git://github.com/tomchristie/django-extra-views.git#egg=django-extra-views

Features so far

  • FormSet and ModelFormSet views - The formset equivalents of FormView and ModelFormView.
  • InlineFormSetView - Lets you edit formsets related to a model (uses inlineformset_factory)
  • GenericInlineFormSetView, the equivalent of InlineFormSetView but for GenericForeignKeys
  • CreateWithInlinesView and UpdateWithInlinesView - Lets you edit a model and its relations
  • Support for generic inlines in CreateWithInlinesView and UpdateWithInlinesView

Notes

  • NamedFormsetMixin removed - context behavior baked directly into views, with inline_context_names and formset_context_name.
  • Removed MultiFormView, SearchableMixin, SortableListMixin, CalendarMonthView.
  • The InlineFormSet and GenericFormSet classes are now just regular classes, not views.

Still to do

Adding support for pagination in ModelFormSetView and its derivatives should now be simpler.

Examples

Defining a FormSetView.

from extra_views import FormSetView


class AddressFormSet(FormSetView):
    form_class = AddressForm
    template_name = 'address_formset.html'

Defining a ModelFormSetView.

from extra_views import ModelFormSetView


class ItemFormSetView(ModelFormSetView):
    model = Item
    template_name = 'item_formset.html'

Defining a CreateWithInlinesView and an UpdateWithInlinesView.

from extra_views import CreateWithInlinesView, UpdateWithInlinesView, InlineFormSet
from extra_views.generic import GenericInlineFormSet


class ItemInline(InlineFormSet):
    model = Item


class TagInline(GenericInlineFormSet):
    model = Tag


class CreateOrderView(CreateWithInlinesView):
    model = Order
    inlines = [ItemInline, TagInline]


class UpdateOrderView(UpdateWithInlinesView):
    model = Order
    inlines = [ItemInline, TagInline]


# Example URLs.
urlpatterns = patterns('',
    url(r'^orders/new/$', CreateOrderView.as_view()),
    url(r'^orders/(?P<pk>\d+)/$', UpdateOrderView.as_view()),
)
