Recently I have been doing work with form fields populated from the database. Obviously this, as standard, is not supported by Django.
After quite some time search, and 3 different approaches to this I decided to make my own. It has not been fully tested yet, but once it has I will post the code.
I havn’t released this class yet so don’t go trying it
To give you an idea as to the usage, note
dfm is (currently) a 12 line class for convenience only, you could easily work without it.
As you can see, after the first few lines, you go back to your normal Django code. It works with only a few dynamic fields, as well as displays the fields in the order you defined them. That was the main problem at least one of the alternatives I found.
You are also able to create your
clean function in the forms to do some basic validation.
Expect this in a few weeks after some more testing has been done.
