@fahad611 You means that you have a commit and you want to cancel it?
If so you can try git reset HEAD~1

@annshress I guess there are already examples of this kind of problem. Check Andrew Godwin's example.
Hey all,
So here is my problem. I have my backend serving as rest api using django and frontend as an electron app with reactjs. One can create and update queries. So what i want is whenever a query is added or updated it should be rendered at the same time on my electron app. I'm quite new to django-channels and confused on how to get this thing work. Anyone having any idea about what plugs should i create or something similar?

@PunitGr You should try to keep a live connection between your client and server. Maybe you should try tornado or nodejs which is good at hanlding such connect due to their async i/o feature.
@PunitGr non-block I/O
@PunitGr If there is only limited number of clients. you can make the clients keep asking the server for update over and over again.

Hi, I have a python question that I hope isn't inappropriate in this channel as it isn't necessarily django specific...
I am trying to create a wheel from a directory called "plugins" that contains some python files and some html files.
My looks like this:

from setuptools import setup

and there is a folder in the same directory as called "plugins"

When I run this command to make a wheel, the wheel is pretty much empty...:
python bdist_wheel sdist
Any ideas why my wheel is empty?

was able to figure this out, instead of py_modules needed to use package_data and data_files

class ChoiceInline(admin.StackedInline):
      model = MyModel
