How to speed up tests with Django and PostgreSQL

20th July 2015 in Coding

Over time I realized that waiting more than 15 minutes for my entire test suite to complete was very, very wrong. I've neglected spending time on fine tuning end eningeering tests and now each time I had to run some tests I found myself annoyed, bored, distracted. Quite a productivity killer.

In this post I'll share how I solved this problem and achieved a drastic speed up of an open source django project.

Hopefully you'll be able to replicate this setup and enjoy the same benefits I'm enjoying now!

Django Tagging Autocomplete Tag-It

9th February 2012 in Coding

I wanted to implement this functionality in my django projects for some time now and I finally had the chance to work on a project that has this requirement in the specification.

This is an attempt to a django reusable app that aims to be functional but flexible. It's based on django-tagging-autocomplete and depends on django-tagging.

Features:

  • Tag editing
  • Autocompletition
  • Customizable maximum tags number
  • Costomizable max length of each tag
  • Customizable minimum amount of letters before the autocompletition starts
  • Aims to be flexible (help me if you want)

27th October 2010 in Coding

What to do in this case?

How can you serve the files then?

Django: FileField with ContentType and File Size Validation

24th September 2010 in Coding

Immagine that you need to add the possibility to upload a PDF or Zip file in the django admin, but you want to be sure your client will upload only these two filetypes and not other ones.
You might also need the same functionality in the frontend, so why not use "ModelForm" and have just one validation for both applications (admin and frontend)?

In this short post I'll share with you my simple solution.
