django-recurrence is a utility for working with recurring dates in Django.


  • Recurrence/Rule objects using a subset of rfc2445 (wraps dateutil.rrule) for specifying recurring date/times,
  • RecurrenceField for storing recurring datetimes in the database, and
  • JavaScript widget.

RecurrenceField provides a Django model field which serializes recurrence information for storage in the database.

For example - say you were storing information about a university course in your app. You could use a model like this:

import recurrence.fields

class Course(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    start = models.TimeField()
    end = models.TimeField()
    recurrences = recurrence.fields.RecurrenceField()

You’ll notice that I’m storing my own start and end time. The recurrence field only deals with recurrences not with specific time information. I have an event that starts at 2pm. Its recurrences would be “every Friday”.

All contributions are welcome!

It is best to separate proposed changes and PRs into small, distinct patches by type so that they can be merged faster into upstream and released quicker.

One way to organize contributions would be to separate PRs for e.g.

  • bugfixes,
  • new features,
  • code and design improvements,
  • documentation improvements, or
  • tooling and CI improvements.

Merging contributions requires passing the checks configured with the CI. This includes running tests and linters successfully on the currently officially supported Python and Django versions.

The test automation is run automatically with GitHub Actions, but you can run it locally with the tox command before pushing commits.
