Retrieve average, minimum, maximum values from model field using Django Aggregation

Reading Time : ~ .

Django queries help to create, retrieve, update and delete objects. But sometimes we need to get summered values from the objects. Then a Simple solution is to use Django aggregate feature Here are simple examples of how to use aggregation.

app/models.py

class company(models.Model):

    name=models.CharField(max_length=20)

    est=models.IntegerField(max_length=4)

class feature(models.Model):

    name=models.CharField(max_length=20)

class device(models.Model):

    name=models.CharField(max_length=20)

    Code=models.IntegerField()

    Company=models.ForeignKey(company)

    features=models.ManyToManyField(feature)

To perform Min Max and Avg on specific column

 

>>> from django.db.models import Avg, Max, Min, Sum
>>> device.objects.all().aggregate(Avg('price'))
    {'price__avg': 12234.0}
>>> device.objects.all().aggregate(Max('price'))
    {'price__max':587961 }
>>> device.objects.all().aggregate(Min('price'))
{'price__min': 01245}

To know the children count of a foreign key field. 

>>> Comp_Devices=company.objects.annotate(no_of_devices=Count('device'))
>>> Comp_Devices[0].no_of_devices
36
>>> Comp_Devices[0].name
u'Micro'
>>> Comp_Devices[1].no_of_devices
1

the same procedure can be followed for ManyToMany field Columns

>>> Dev_features_count = device.objects.annotate(num=Count('features'))

>>> Dev_features_count[0].num

3

>>> Dev_features_count[1].num

2

>>> 

 

You can perform some complex queries like

To know the devices which have more than two features

>>> Dev_features= device.objects.annotate(num=Count('features')).filter(num__gt=2)

>>> Dev_features[0].num

3
