[python] Django Rest Framework - Get related model field in serializer



Answers

Question

I'm trying to return a HttpResponse from Django Rest Framework including data from 2 linked models. The models are:

class Wine(models.Model):

    color = models.CharField(max_length=100, blank=True)
    country = models.CharField(max_length=100, blank=True)
    region = models.CharField(max_length=100, blank=True)
    appellation = models.CharField(max_length=100, blank=True)

class Bottle(models.Model):

    wine = models.ForeignKey(Wine, null=False)
    user = models.ForeignKey(User, null=False, related_name='bottles')

I'd like to have a serializer for the Bottle model which includes information from the related Wine.

I tried:

class BottleSerializer(serializers.HyperlinkedModelSerializer):
    wine = serializers.RelatedField(source='wine')

    class Meta:
        model = Bottle
        fields = ('url', 'wine.color', 'wine.country', 'user', 'date_rated', 'rating', 'comment', 'get_more')

which doesn't work.

Any ideas how I could do that?

Thanks :)
