How to migrate¶
If you’ve used the old
django.contrib.localflavor package or one of the
django-localflavor-* releases, follow these two easy steps to
update your code:
Install the third-party
django-localflavorpackage from PyPI.
Change your app’s import statements to reference the new package.
For example, change this:
from django.contrib.localflavor.fr.forms import FRPhoneNumberField
from localflavor.fr.forms import FRPhoneNumberField
The code in the new package is the same (it was copied directly from Django), so you don’t have to worry about backwards compatibility in terms of functionality. Only the imports have changed.
In Django 1.5, importing from
django.contrib.localflavor will result in a
DeprecationWarning. This means your code will still work, but you should
change it as soon as possible.
In Django 1.6, importing from
django.contrib.localflavor will no longer
