I'm very new to both django and python and I have run in too an error to which I do not understand. The runserver command works, and I can enter my website on localhost. But the Shell is broken somehow. Im using PyCharm on an Conda virtual env as far as I know. I'm using mac os high sierra. Edit: Also using Postgres.

Error when trying to import a model

django.core.exceptions.AppRegistryNotReady: Apps aren't loaded yet.

The model in question looks like this:

from __future__ import unicode_literals
from django.db import models
from senders.models import Senders

class Routines(models.Model):
    routine_id = models.AutoField(primary_key=True)
    sender_id = models.ForeignKey(Senders, on_delete=models.CASCADE, default=1)
    in_routine = models.CharField(max_length=20)
    out_routine = models.CharField(max_length=20)
    mail_class = models.CharField(max_length=5)
    last_change = models.DateTimeField(auto_now=True)
    def __int__(self):
        return self.routine_id

Another weird this is that when if I instead of the regular "mac os" terminal use the PyCharm shell it starts with an error message like this:

If anyone could help I'd be grateful!

I ran into this problem. The problem for me was that psycopg2 and six were clashing. I was using psycopg2==2.6.1 and mismatched version of six. I specified to use six 1.10 and psycopg2==2.7.1 and it worked. I would verify that your version of six works with the verision of psycopg2. If that doesn't work I would take a look at this. If you are not sure how to check your versions, write out a requirements.txt using pip freeze > requirements.txt .

Related objects reference | Django documentation, The “other side” of a ForeignKey relation. field can't be set to None ( NULL ), then an object can't be removed from a relation without being added to another. Django Unchained tells the story of Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave who is soon picked up by bounty hunter Dr King Shultz (Christoph Waltz). The story follows on as Shultz takes on Django as his "deputy" during their tasks of bounty hunting, in return Shultz says that after winter he will help find Django's lost wife, Broomhilda.

Solved: As Josewails pointed out. The error was indeed psycopg2 related.

Since I'm using Conda virtual env, I was able to install psycopg2 through the "Anaconda navigator" gui/application.

It then added the dependent libpg etc.

Now it everything works both in the terminal and "runserver".

Writing your first Django app, part 3 | Django documentation, In Django, web pages and other content are delivered by views. Within the templates directory you have just created, create another directory called polls  Create a Python file containing the required functions. Create another Python file and import the previous Python file into it. Call the functions defined in the imported file. The above approach has been used in the below examples: Example 1: A Python file is created and it contains the displayText() function.

Another solution was to reinstall psycopg with.

pip install --global-option=build_ext \
            --global-option="-I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include" \
            --global-option="-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib" psycopg2

For some reason this worked

Writing custom model fields | Django documentation, This is another case where a Field subclass will help you use your object with and retrieve from the hand attribute in our model just like any other Python class. One inspiration for the film is Corbucci's 1966 Spaghetti Western Django, whose star Franco Nero has a cameo appearance in Django Unchained. Another inspiration is the 1975 film Mandingo, about a slave trained to fight other slaves. Tarantino included scenes in the snow as a homage to The Great Silence. "Silenzio takes place in the snow.

Models¶ A model is the single, definitive source of information about your data. It contains the essential fields and behaviors of the data you’re storing. Generally, each model maps to a single database table. The basics: Each model is a Python class that subclasses django.db.models.Model. Each attribute of the model represents a database

  • Are you using PostgreSQL? If yes, you should have psycopg2 installed. It is the Python driver for PostgreSQL.
  • Hello and thanks. Yes I'm using Postgres and I have installed psycopg2 to my knowledge. If I run "pip install psycopg2" it says "all requirements met" or something and the same if i run "conda install psycopg2. So in the last "error-message" it cant find it for some reason.
  • definitely something with psycopg2. Created a new project with postgres. same as last above error occurs.
