What would you like to do?
Connecting Django Signals using the AppConfig ready handler:
default_app_config = 'cn.apps.users.config.UsersAppConfig'
from django.apps import AppConfig
class UsersAppConfig(AppConfig):
name = 'cn.apps.users'
def ready(self):
import signals # noqa
from django.dispatch import receiver
from django.db.models.signals import post_save, pre_delete
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from .models import UserProfile
@receiver(post_save, sender=User, dispatch_uid="users.create_user_profile")
def create_user_profile(**kwargs):
Automatically create a UserProfile for any newly created User.
user = kwargs.get('instance')
if not hasattr(user, 'profile'):
@receiver(pre_delete, sender=UserProfile,
def delete_profile_image(**kwargs):
Deletes the UserProfile.image file.

After upgrading to Django 2, I'm having trouble with this same method. In the ready method, when I try to import signals, I get "No module named 'Signals'". Any thoughts on this? This was working with Django 1.10.

My bad, I found the answer in the docs here
