Hmm… just noticed a big change in Django’s newforms API which happened
in r6844 (so basically on Dec 2nd):
got deprecated in favor of the the new ModelForm class. The motivation
behind this move is quite well documented on the django-dev mailinglist,
but for me personally it seems to boil down to replace
a much more declarative syntax (which is a good thing).
So if you for instance have a model
Game like this (if I understood it correctly)
class Game(models.Model): name = models.CharField(max_length=150) ...
you could easily create a form class for it like this:
class GameForm(forms.ModelForm): class Meta: model = Game
I really can’t wait to actually play around with this since it just makes everything all so much more consistent :-)
For some details checkout the new modelforms documentation page.
