DurationField in Django Forms

Let’s learn this with some easy examples.
At first, I am creating a blog of articles using Django. For all the codes you may refer this :

Now go-to models.py in the above link and include DurationField.

  1. models.py :

    from django.db import models
    from django.contrib.auth.models import User
    # Create your models here.
    class Article(models.Model):
        title = models.CharField(max_length=100)
        slug = models.SlugField()
        body = models.TextField()
        date = models.DateTimeField(auto_now_add=True)
        thumb = models.ImageField(default='default.png',blank=True)
        author = models.ForeignKey(User,default=None,on_delete=models.CASCADE)
        time = models.DurationField()
        def __str__(self):
            return self.title
        def snippet(self):
            return self.body[:50]+'...'
  2. forms.py :

    from django import forms
    from . import models
    class CreateArticle(forms.ModelForm):
        class Meta:
            model = models.Article
            fields = ['title','body','slug','thumb','author','time']

Now  we have to do migrations and there are some commands we need to run in command prompt for windows :
Syntax :

Windows -> cmd
python manage.py makemigrations

Now the above command creates a new python file in the migrations. Still, we have to run some more commands.

Syntax :

python manage.py migrate
python manage.py runserver

After running the above command, we are going to get the output as follows :

Output :
