Built in data models¶
Camelot comes with a number of built in data models. To avoid boiler plate models needed in almost any application (like Persons, Addresses, etc.), the developer is encouraged to use these data models as a start for developing custom applications.
To activate a model, the model should be imported in the setup_model method of settings.py:
def setup_model(): from camelot.core.sql import metadata metadata.bind = ENGINE() from camelot.model import authentication from camelot.model import party from camelot.model import i18n from elixir import setup_all setup_all( create_tables=True )
Some of these models are still developed using Elixir, therefor, when using these models the setup_all method should be called in settings.py to activate the Elixir mapping. This is not needed when only Declarative model definitions are used.
