Useful Django Apps – South

By | March 4, 2013


A data migration tool, what it really means is if you change the data model and want to keep the data in there, you will need this app. At first I thought it’s tedious for early stage development when data isn’t important (why not just syncdb??), but once I realised it’s actually quicker to use south through out the development cycle.

e.g you added a field, just run

python schemamigration app_name --auto
python migrate app_name

Bang, done.
