Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in.
I spent almost two years away from Django after my last job. My interests shifted, and django-class-fixtures, the best Django-related work I’d ever done, became neglected.
But no more! After a series of iOS projects, I took on my first professional Django project since late 2010, and realized that django-class-fixtures still kicks ass. I couldn’t bear to use Django’s own fixtures in the project, and the other alternatives didn’t look that appealing, so I decided to revive it.
I intend to release a proper 0.9 release of it and update the documentation to reflect the new features since 0.8, and likely start making it known for the Django community at large. Python 3 support is the next big item after 0.9.
I can’t absolutely guarantee that I won’t lose interest in the project again later on, but right now I’m energized to work on it once more, hopefully at least up to 1.0 and keeping up compatibility with future Django releases after that.
