I am using Django which allows people to add extra parameters to a class by using
class FooModel(models.Model): ... class Meta: ...
The only thing I found in Python’s documentation was:
class FooMetaClass(type): ... class FooClass: __metaclass__ = FooMetaClass
However, I don’t think this is the same thing.
Now we will see solution for issue: How does Django’s nested Meta class work?
You are asking a question about two different things:
Metainner class in Django models:
This is just a class container with some options (metadata) attached to the model. It defines such things as available permissions, associated database table name, whether the model is abstract or not, singular and plural versions of the name etc.
Short explanation is here: Django docs: Models: Meta options
List of available meta options is here: Django docs: Model Meta options
For latest version of Django: Django docs: Model Meta options
Metaclass in Python:
The best description is here: What are metaclasses in Python?
