In Django you can use the exclude to create SQL similar to
not equal. An example could be.
Now this works great and exclude is very flexible. Since I'm a bit lazy, I would like to get that functionality when using
get_object_or_404, but I haven't found a way to do this, since you cannot use exclude on
What I want is to do something like this:
model = get_object_or_404(pk=id, status__exclude='deleted')
But unfortunately this doesn't work as there isn't an exclude query filter or similar. The best I've come up with so far is doing something like this:
object = get_object_or_404(pk=id) if object.status == 'deleted': return HttpResponseNotfound('text')
Doing something like that, really defeats the point of using
get_object_or_404, since it no longer is a handy one-liner.
Alternatively I could do:
object = get_object_or_404(pk=id, status__in=['list', 'of', 'items'])
But that wouldn't be very maintainable, as I would need to keep the list up to date.
I'm wondering if I'm missing some trick or feature in django to use
get_object_or_404 to get the desired result?
