I have a handful of records that I would like to sort based on a computed value. Got the answer over here… like so:
sorted(Profile.objects.all(), key=lambda p: p.reputation)
on a Profile class like this:
class Profile(models.Model): ... @property def reputation(self): ...
Unfortunately the generic view is expecting a queryset object and throws an error if I give it a list.
Is there a way to do this that returns a queryset
Can I convert a list to a queryset somehow? Couldn't find anything like that in the django docs.
I am hoping not to denormalize the data, but I guess I will if I have to.
Update / Answer:
it seems that the only way to get a queryset back is if you can get all of your logic into the sql queries.
When that is not possible, (I think) you need to denormalize the data
