Question:

How can I drop all tables from a database using manage.py and command line? Is there any way to do that executing manage.py with appropriate parameters so I can execute it from a .NET application?


Best Answer:


If you want to completely wipe the database and resync it in the same go you need something like the following. I also combine adding test data in this command:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import os
os.environ.setdefault("DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE", "main.settings") # Replace with your app name.
from django.db import connection
from django.core.management import call_command
from django.conf import settings
# If you're using postgres you can't use django's sql stuff for some reason that I
# can't remember. It has to do with that autocommit thing I think.
# import psychodb2 as db
def recreateDb():
    print("Wiping database")
    dbinfo = settings.DATABASES['default']
    # Postgres version
    #conn = db.connect(host=dbinfo['HOST'], user=dbinfo['USER'],
    #                 password=dbinfo['PASSWORD'], port=int(dbinfo['PORT'] or 5432))
    #conn.autocommit = True
    #cursor = conn.cursor()
    #cursor.execute("DROP DATABASE " + dbinfo['NAME'])
    #cursor.execute("CREATE DATABASE " + dbinfo['NAME'] + " WITH ENCODING 'UTF8'") # Default is UTF8, but can be changed so lets be sure.
    # Mysql version:
    print("Dropping and creating database " + dbinfo['NAME'])
    cursor = connection.cursor()
    cursor.execute("DROP DATABASE " + dbinfo["NAME"] + "; CREATE DATABASE " + dbinfo["NAME"] + "; USE " + dbinfo["NAME"] + ";")
    print("Done")
if __name__ == "__main__":
    recreateDb();
    print("Syncing DB")
    call_command('syncdb', interactive=False)
    print("Adding test data")
    addTestData() # ...

It would be nice to be able to do cursor.execute(call_command('sqlclear', 'main')) but call_command prints the SQL to stdout rather than returning it as a string, and I can't work out the sql_delete code...
