best way to create feature field for a product in Django


a Mobile device has many features in different types.

RAM=4: int

fingerprint=yes : boolean

camera=face detection, touch focus, panorama …

how to create field for features, create an app for features and declare each feature type ? :

class IntFeature(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField()
    value = models.IntegerField()

class BoolFeature(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField()
    value = models.BooleanField()

class CharFeature(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField()
    value = models.CharField()


i guess all you need is just one class with an extra field which you’ll define the type that you’ll refer to it to cast the value

class Feature(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField()
    value = models.CharField()  # it should be a string
    type  = models.CharField()  # it could be an object, array, json, int, boolean ..


it seems you want to assign a bunch of attributes - values to a given product, may be you should look at woocommerce to get the idea or better Oscar a django-based ecommerce solution
