Hi all,\n\nSystem:\nDebian Wheezy Linux\nPython 2.7\nDjango 1.5\nMySql 5.5\n\nI am new to Python and Django and am having trouble matching Python data\ntypes with those of MySQL. MySQL has about 7 basic data types including\nBlobs, Binaries, etc. It also has a rich selection of geometry types. In\naddition, types like INT have 7 or 8 different options like Primary Key,\nzero fill, auto inc, etc. I can't seem to find anything in python to\nmatch these. I am trying to build a model.py for an existing database\nthat was created with MySQL Workbench.\n\nI do not wish to use anything other than MySQL because of the complexity\nof my storage needs (searchable text, PDF, Audio, Video and Photos). The\ntext searches will often be word phrase searches through thousands of\ndocuments. I need the speed and the data type flexibility.\n\nHow do I build or modify a model.py to do this. I really don't want to\nwrite a model.py manually. That would really be a major pain. Workbench\nto the database an import to Django and edit is my choice.\nUnfortunately, the model.py produced has lost most of the functionality\nof the original database and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it.\n\nAny help will be sincerely appreciated.\n\nGary R.
