Getting started

Once you’ve installed django-recurrence, you’ll generally want to start by using it in one of your models, which can be done like this:

from recurrence.fields import RecurrenceField

class Course(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    recurrences = RecurrenceField()

If you use the Course model in Django’s administrative interface, or in any forms, it should be rendered with a pretty form field, which makes selecting relatively complex recurrence patterns easy.

The form field for recurrence fields

Using this form it’s possible to specify relatively complex recurrence rules - such as an event that happens every third Thursday of the month, unless that Thursday happens to be the 21st of the month, and so on.

Form Usage

from django import forms
from .models import Course

class CourseForm(forms.ModelForm):
   class Meta:
      model = Course
      fields = ('title', 'recurrences',)


Be sure to add {{ }} to your template or statically link recurrence.css and recurrence.js.

<form method="POST" class="post-form">
    {% csrf_token %}
    {{ }}
    {{ form }}
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>
