You can contribute to django-polymorphic to forking the code on GitHub:

Running tests

We require features to be backed by a unit test. This way, we can test django-polymorphic against new Django versions. To run the included test suite, execute:


To test support for multiple Python and Django versions, run tox from the repository root:

pip install tox

The Python versions need to be installed at your system. On Linux, download the versions at On MacOS X, use Homebrew to install other Python versions.

We currently support Python 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, and 3.8.

Example project

The repository contains a complete Django project that may be used for tests or experiments, without any installation needed.

The management command in the app pexp can be used for quick tests or experiments - modify this file (pexp/management/commands/ to your liking.

Supported Django versions

The current release should be usable with the supported releases of Django; the current stable release and the previous release. Supporting older Django versions is a nice-to-have feature, but not mandatory.

In case you need to use django-polymorphic with older Django versions, consider installing a previous version.
