South 1.0.1

An intelligent schema migration application for the Django framework
Its main objectives is to provide a simple, stable and database-independent migration layer.

It has an automatic schema generation (syncdb) that must be run at least once on every Django project.

South can tell if a migration has been left out or not and will warn the developer.

Main features:

  • Automatic migration creation: South can see what’s changed in your file and automatically write migrations that match your changes.
  • Database independence: As far as possible, South is completely database-agnostic, supporting five different database backends.
  • App-savvy: South knows and works with the concept of Django apps, allowing you to use migrations for some of your apps and leave the rest to carry on using syncdb.
  • VCS-proof: South will notice if someone else commits migrations to the same app as you and they conflict.
