I got tired of waiting for this system, so I made it myself. So far
it really only works with SQLite, and I haven't gotten many edge cases
tested yet. Anyone have time to give me some feedback? Thanks.
So the idea is a django orm database migration system that:
* Is simple.
* Doesn't make you use sql. This is an orm, we shouldn't have to use sql.
* Can be automatic. Predicts the migration script for you so you
don't have to think about what has changed.
* Works well in a version control system, or even distributed ones.
* During the migration process, **allows you to use the state of
your previous models as if they were still there**. This is key, and
is not done anywhere else, as far as I know.
