importerror: cannot import name jsonfield from django_mysql.models error generates because of keeping the lower version of Django module. This is a very generic mistake We all do it to use a different set of syntax with different versions. Also why we do this mistake, since we all take references for code from internet blogs, and technical communities and their author provides the solutions by mentioning version type. Anyways in this article, we will explore how can we fix this issue in the easiest way.
importerror: cannot import name jsonfield from django_mysql.models ( Root Cause ) –
The official documentation of Django says we can only use the JSON field in version 3.1 or above. But if you are keeping the version below to 3.1, you will get this error.
importerror: cannot import name jsonfield from django_mysql.models ( Solution ) –
In order to fix this error, we need to upgrade this django package either by latest or any version which is 3.1 +. Let’s see how can we do so.
pip install Django
pip install Django==version( more that 3.1 )
For details related to the version for the same is here.
Other Alternative to fix –
Alternative 1 :
There can be other alternatives to upgrading the package like conda etc. we can also try the same-
conda install -c anaconda django
Alternative 2 :
Another way is using the extension to resolve this error. This extension is django-jsonfield. We can install this extension over the top using the pip package manager. Here is the command to install this django-jsonfield package.
pip install django-jsonfield
It will install the latest version for django-jsonfield package. We can also select and become version-specific by mentioning the same.
pip install django-jsonfield==version
Actually, this Django is a web framework in python where we create models to define the database layers ( schema ). This is a mandatory rule in Python MVC framework ( Model View Controller ) architecture.
This is the crux to fixing this error !! Hope you found it helpful.
