        asakapab0i: if you're migrating django apps to py3, "six" is a really useful package

        schnickel: I was introduced to it in the tutorials, and found it in the documentation.

        Alright, I need to read some articles probably a good idea to research first.
      • schinckel
        ghostmoth: Maybe look at what the query being generated is?

        good idea

        is there a freenode chan that can help me with network issues
      • hydraidm801
        when I use the interface to make a new subpage it creates a real basic html markup. I can't figure out where or how this markup is being generated
      • FunkyBob
        hydraidm801: surely that's covered in their documentation?

        Hi all, I'm trying to save a user-uploaded file in a db. This is what I have: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/70d6740afcb67...
      • Everything works fine until the save() on the last line.
      • I'm not sure how to approach debugging this.
      • FunkyBob
        wait.. you want the file contents _in_ the db?
      • or are you just using a FileField?
      • Greener
        Er, yeah, that was badly said. I'm using a filefield; django can do whatever magic it wants to store it. :p
      • FunkyBob
        also... you should consider conforming to standard Python naming practices
      • StubAcceptFile would be a class name... you should use stub_accept_file for a function
      • if it's a Filefield on a model, your simplest option is to use a ModelForm
      • also... HttpRequest is the class name... you should call the first argument "request"
      • cewing is now known as cewing|afk
      • holler_ has quit
      • tkimmel has quit
      • and finally... you should not define the upload_to function as a method on the class... it won't work
      • Greener
        Everything is noted - that last part was from following tutorials, though. Let me double check where I got that from.
      • FunkyBob
        not the official tutorial, it's not
      • shiver joined the channel
      • Greener
        Hm. Where should that function go instead?
      • ghostmoth has quit
      • I just moved it outside the class, and I'm not sure if that helps or not. (The mystery error is still happening)
      • csotelo has quit
      • romance joined the channel
      • FunkyBob
        well, as I said... your easiest path to success here is to use a ModelForm
      • it's what I always do... because I can't be bothered remembering how to do it otherwise :)

        the other night at the DjangoMelb meetup, the host(I'm bad with names) mentioned an issues with dates - depending on what fn you call, you might get the "date server restarted" rather than "today". Can anyone recall what that was about? I think I've just walked into that

        datakid: I don't remember that...
      • datakid: sounds like the differnce between "default=date.today" and "default=date.today()"
      • the former, being a callable, will be called each time a default value is needed
      • the latter will call it once to provide the value... and that call will be on first import of the module

        I'm trying to get my head around some logic for a project ( app ) that I am involved with, and knew where to come.

        I have a page that has a menu of several items. Each of those items will go to a form where data is collected and submitted.
      • I am looking at the polls tutorial ( again ), and not sure how to resolve my needs with what it is showing.
      • In the first place, in my menu, do I put the name of the view that does the actual data storage, or another "buffer" one, to display the form?
      • FunkyBob
        bdmc: won't the menu be included on all [most?] pages?
      • bdmc
        The first time it is called, the POST will be empty, but that --
      • ArcTanSusan joined the channel
      • FunkyBob
        so the "menu" is just a page of links to other pages... each of which has a form?
      • ShinySides has quit
      • bdmc
        This is a two-level menu. The first page displays some general information, and then has a menu -- think a Profile page. The first page shows Name, e-mail, etc.
      • But, it has a menu at the top for change password, edit user data, edit e-mail addr, etc. How's that?
      • FunkyBob
        ok
      • so you want a number of pages for editing _parts_ of your user/profile data?
      • bdmc
        Yes.
      • FunkyBob
        ok
      • schinckel
        datakid: Even more nefarious is if you pass a mutable object (like a dict or list literal) as the default argument to a function. It uses that for each function call, mutating it each time.
      • FunkyBob
        so each of those pages will be a simple modelform processig page
      • schinckel
        def foo(bar=[]): ...
      • datakid: If you mutate bar in the function, then it will probably surprise you!

        How do I write the urls.py and views.py? Do I write one for the unused form, and one for the processing of the data, or one that covers both?
