django-querysetsequence

Release v0.14 (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.

Overview

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.
