Django fixtures from JSON
Simple operations for editing JSON Django fixtures.
These functions may be useful as example code for manipulating a JSON
file so it plays nice as a Django fixture.
import json
def add_pk_to_list():
Add pk integer to each object.
with open('items.json') as f:
data = json.load(f)
i = 0
for ob in data:
ob['pk'] = i
i += 1
with open('fixture.json', 'w') as f:
json.dump(data, f)
def move_attr_to_field(field_name):
Move object attribute to fields object.
with open('fixture.json') as f:
data = json.load(f)
for model in data:
fields = model.get('fields', {})
fields[field_name] = model.pop(field_name)
except KeyError:
model['fields'] = fields
with open('fixture2.json', 'w') as f:
json.dump(data, f)
