Release v0.17 (What’s new? <changelog>).

Getting Started

django-querysetsequence adds helpers for treating multiple disparate QuerySet obejcts as a single QuerySet. This is useful for passing into APIs that only accepted a single QuerySet.

The QuerySetSequence wrapper is used to combine multiple QuerySet instances.


QuerySetSequence aims to provide the same behavior as Django’s QuerySets, but applied across multiple QuerySet instances.

Supported features:

  • Methods that take a list of fields (e.g. filter(), exclude(), get(), order_by()) must use fields that are common across all sub-QuerySets.
  • Relationships across related models work (e.g. 'foo__bar', 'foo', or 'foo_id'). syntax).
  • The sub-QuerySets are evaluated as late as possible (e.g. during iteration, slicing, pickling, repr()/len()/list()/bool() calls).
  • Public QuerySet API methods that are untested/unimplemented raise NotImplementedError.

Getting Started

Install the package using pip.

pip install --upgrade django-querysetsequence

Basic Usage

# Import QuerySetSequence
from queryset_sequence import QuerySetSequence

# Create QuerySets you want to chain.
from .models import SomeModel, OtherModel

# Chain them together.
query = QuerySetSequence(SomeModel.objects.all(), OtherModel.objects.all())

# Use query as if it were a QuerySet! E.g. in a ListView.
