Re: [zine] Adding database models in plugins
- 2010-01-15 @ 02:54
I looked through the code, and it looks pretty good. I could mostly
understand the Eric the Fish plugin's migrations, but you will
probably want to write some sort of documentation describing the
process of migrations in more detail, as SQLAlchemy isn't really my
forte, and the obviousness is likely to decrease exponentially for
anything more complicated than Eric the Fish.
Another thing is that you might want to rethink the idea of having the
migrations yield HTML for progress updates. Yielding straight HTML
markup looks a bit kludgy, and I saw a bit of difference in the way
the HTML was written between the core migrations and the Eric the Fish
migration. I'm not sure what the best way to handle this would be -
possibly some sort of thing like:
yield Status('Adding fortunes to the database')
for fortune in FORTUNES:
"There are 10 types of people in the world - those who understand
binary and those who don't."
