Hi guys
I want to pluralize table names generated by migrations
I added class Meta with verbose_name_plural to Model as adviced but that didn't help

Is it possible to set without explicitly specifying db_table option?

@arogachev verbose_name_plural is not the name used in tables
why would you want to override the table name anyway?
this would break django convention for naming tables

@megapctr I ended up overriding db_table
Yes, maybe it's better to accept Django's default convention. I used pluralized forms in database tables for a long time before.
It was like personal and team convention, also in PHP and Rails I used it a lot. So it's a bit uncomfortable to see single name version, but yes sometimes it's better accept convention of framework

you're basically adding boilerplate that serves no benefit. think through it :)
besides, you'll probably not need to inspect the raw sql data (use shell or shell_plus from django_extensions app)

Does anyone have a recommendation for a simple way to look up City / State using Zipcode in Django? Tried pyzipcode, but got install errors, tried zipcode but got threading errors.

Hey all, does anyone know if there is any Python ( or any decent language ) based tool that lets you write HTML more like a traditional UI?
