Django Schema Graph

Django-schema-graph makes a colourful diagram out of your Django models. The diagram is interactive, and makes it easy to toggle models and apps on/off at will.

It looks like this:

(Apologies that the images above don't work on PyPI. Check it out on GitHub.)

Installation

Install from PyPI:

pip install django-schema-graph

Add to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'schema_graph',
    ...
]

Add to your URLs.

from schema_graph.views import Schema
urlpatterns += [
    # On Django 2+:
    path("schema/", Schema.as_view()),
    # Or, on Django < 2:
    url(r"^schema/$", Schema.as_view()),
]

Use

Browse to /schema/ (assuming that's where you put it in your URLs).

Note: DEBUG mode is required, on the assumption that you don't want to leak sensitive information about your website outside of local development.

Support

Tests run on sensible combinations of:

  • Python (2.7, 3.5-3.8)
  • Django (1.8, 1.11-3.0)

Alternatives

  • django-spaghetti-and-meatballs is great. At the time of writing, it offers a lot more detailed information on the models in the diagram, but doesn't allow them to be turned on/off in the page.
