History

1.0.0 (2017-08-12)

It’s finally here! We’ve made significant changes to the codebase and are now compliant with stripe API version 2017-06-05.

I want to give a huge thanks to all of our contributors for their help in making this happen, especially Bill Huneke (@wahuneke) for his impressive design work and @jleclanche for really pushing this release along.

I also want to welcome onboard two more maintainers, @jleclanche and @lskillen. They’ve stepped up and have graciously dedicated their resources to making dj-stripe such an amazing package.

Almost all methods now mimic the parameters of those same methods in the stripe API. Note that some methods do not have some parameters implemented. This is intentional. That being said, expect all method signatures to be different than those in previous versions of dj-stripe.

Finally, please note that there is still a bit of work ahead of us. Not everything in the Stripe API is currently supported by dj-stripe – we’re working on it. That said, v1.0.0 has been thoroughly tested and is verified stable in production applications.

A few things to get excited for

  • Multiple subscription support (finally)
  • Multiple sources support (currently limited to Cards)
  • Idempotency support (See #455, #460 for discussion – big thanks to @jleclanche)
  • Full model documentation
  • Objects that come through webhooks are now tied to the API version set in dj-stripe. No more errors if dj-stripe falls behind the newest stripe API version.
  • Any create/update action on an object automatically syncs the object.
  • Concurrent LIVE and TEST mode support (Thanks to @jleclanche). Note that you’ll run into issues if livemode isn’t set on your existing customer objects.
  • All choices are now enum-based (Thanks @jleclanche, See #520). Access them from the new djstripe.enums module. The ability to check against model property based choices will be deprecated in 1.1
  • Support for the Coupon model, and coupons on Customer objects.
  • Support for the Payout/Transfer split from api version 2017-04-06.

What still needs to be done (in v1.1.0)

  • Documentation. Our original documentation was not very helpful, but it covered the important bits. It will be very out of date after this update and will need to be rewritten. If you feel like helping, we could use all the help we can get to get this pushed out asap.

  • Master sync re-write. This sounds scary, but really isn’t. The current management methods run sync methods on Customer that aren’t very helpful and are due for removal. My plan is to write something that first updates local data (via api_retrieve and sync_from_stripe_data) and then pulls all objects from Stripe and populates the local database with any records that don’t already exist there.

    You might be wondering, “Why are they releasing this if there are only a few things left?” Well, that thinking turned this into a two year release... Trust me, this is a good thing.

Significant changes (mostly backwards-incompatible)

  • Idempotency. #460 introduces idempotency keys and implements idempotency for Customer.get_or_create(). Idempotency will be enabled for all calls that need it.
  • Improved Admin Interface. This is almost complete. See #451 and #452.
  • Drop non-trivial endpoint views. We’re dropping everything except the webhook endpoint and the subscription cancel endpoint. See #428.
  • Drop support for sending receipts. Stripe now handles this for you. See #478.
  • Drop support for plans as settings, including custom plan hierarchy (if you want this, write something custom) and the dynamic trial callback. We’ve decided to gut having plans as settings. Stripe should be your source of truth; create your plans there and sync them down manually. If you need to create plans locally for testing, etc., simply use the ORM to create Plan models. The sync rewrite will make this drop less annoying.
  • Orphan Customer Sync. We will now sync Customer objects from Stripe even if they aren’t linked to local subscriber objects. You can link up subscribers to those Customers manually.
  • Concurrent Live and Test Mode. dj-stripe now supports test-mode and live-mode Customer objects concurrently. As a result, the User.customer One-to-One reverse-relationship is now the User.djstripe_customers RelatedManager. (Thanks @jleclanche) #440. You’ll run into some dj-stripe check issues if you don’t update your KEY settings accordingly. Check our GitHub issue tracker for help on this.

SETTINGS

  • The PLAN_CHOICES, PLAN_LIST, and PAYMENT_PLANS objects are removed. Use Plan.objects.all() instead.
  • The plan_from_stripe_id function is removed. Use Plan.objects.get(stripe_id=)

SYNCING

  • sync_plans no longer takes an api_key
  • sync methods no longer take a cu parameter
  • All sync methods are now private. We’re in the process of building a better syncing mechanism.

UTILITIES

  • dj-stripe decorators now take a plan argument. If you’re passing in a custom test function to subscriber_passes_pay_test, be sure to account for this new argument.

MIXINS

  • The context provided by dj-stripe’s mixins has changed. PaymentsContextMixin now provides STRIPE_PUBLIC_KEY and plans (changed to Plan.objects.all()). SubscriptionMixin now provides customer and is_plans_plural.
  • We’ve removed the SubscriptionPaymentRequiredMixin. Use @method_decorator("dispatch",subscription_payment_required) instead.

MIDDLEWARE

  • dj-stripe middleware doesn’t support multiple subscriptions.

SIGNALS

  • Local custom signals are deprecated in favor of Stripe webhooks:
  • cancelled -> WEBHOOK_SIGNALS[“customer.subscription.deleted”]
  • card_changed -> WEBHOOK_SIGNALS[“customer.source.updated”]
  • subscription_made -> WEBHOOK_SIGNALS[“customer.subscription.created”]

WEBHOOK EVENTS

  • The Event Handlers designed by @wahuneke are the new way to handle events that come through webhooks. Definitely take a look at event_handlers.py and webhooks.py.

EXCEPTIONS

  • SubscriptionUpdateFailure and SubscriptionCancellationFailure exceptions are removed. There should no longer be a case where they would have been useful. Catch native stripe errors in their place instead.

MODELS

CHARGE

  • Charge.charge_created -> Charge.stripe_timestamp

  • Charge.card_last_4 and Charge.card_kind are removed. Use Charge.source.last4 and Charge.source.brand (if the source is a Card)

  • Charge.invoice is no longer a foreign key to the Invoice model. Invoice now has a OneToOne relationship with Charge. (Charge.invoice will still work, but will no longer be represented in the database).

    CUSTOMER

  • dj-stripe now supports test mode and live mode Customer objects concurrently (See #440). As a result, the <subscriber_model>.customer OneToOne reverse relationship is no longer a thing. You should now instead add a customer property to your subscriber model that checks whether you’re in live or test mode (see djstripe.settings.STRIPE_LIVE_MODE as an example) and grabs the customer from <subscriber_model>.djstripe_customers with a simple livemode= filter.

  • Customer no longer has a current_subscription property. We’ve added a subscription property that should suit your needs.

  • With the advent of multiple subscriptions, the behavior of Customer.subscribe() has changed. Before, calling subscribe() when a customer was already subscribed to a plan would switch the customer to the new plan with an option to prorate. Now calling subscribe() simply subscribes that customer to a new plan in addition to it’s current subsription. Use Subscription.update() to change a subscription’s plan instead.

  • Customer.cancel_subscription() is removed. Use Subscription.cancel() instead.

  • The Customer.update_plan_quantity() method is removed. Use Subscription.update() instead.

  • CustomerManager is now SubscriptionManager and works on the Subscription model instead of the Customer model.

  • Customer.has_valid_card() is now Customer.has_valid_source().

  • Customer.update_card() now takes an id. If the id is not supplied, the default source is updated.

  • Customer.stripe_customer property is removed. Use Customer.api_retrieve() instead.

  • The at_period_end parameter of Customer.cancel_subscription() now actually follows the DJSTRIPE_PRORATION_POLICY setting.

  • Customer.card_fingerprint, Customer.card_last_4, Customer.card_kind, Customer.card_exp_month, Customer.card_exp_year are all removed. Check Customer.default_source (if it’s a Card) or one of the sources in Customer.sources (again, if it’s a Card) instead.

  • The invoice_id parameter of Customer.add_invoice_item is now named invoice and can be either an Invoice object or the stripe_id of an Invoice.

    EVENT

  • Event.kind -> Event.type

  • Removed Event.validated_message. Just check if the event is valid - no need to double check (we do that for you)

    TRANSFER

  • Removed Transfer.update_status()

  • Removed Transfer.event

  • TransferChargeFee is removed. It hasn’t been used in a while due to a broken API version. Use Transfer.fee_details instead.

  • Any fields that were in Transfer.summary no longer exist and are therefore deprecated (unused but not removed from the database). Because of this, TransferManager now only aggregates total_sum

    INVOICE

  • Invoice.attempts -> Invoice.attempt_count

  • InvoiceItems are no longer created when Invoices are synced. You must now sync InvoiceItems directly.

    INVOICEITEM

  • Removed InvoiceItem.line_type

    PLAN

  • Plan no longer has a stripe_plan property. Use api_retrieve() instead.

  • Plan.currency no longer uses choices. Use the get_supported_currency_choices() utility and create your own custom choices list instead.

  • Plan interval choices are now in Plan.INTERVAL_TYPE_CHOICES

    SUBSCRIPTION

  • Subscription.is_period_current() now checks for a current trial end if the current period has ended. This change means subscriptions extended with Subscription.extend() will now be seen as valid.

MIGRATIONS

We’ll sync your current records with Stripe in a migration. It will take a while, but it’s the only way we can ensure data integrity. There were some fields for which we needed to temporarily add placeholder defaults, so just make sure you have a customer with ID 1 and a plan with ID 1 and you shouldn’t run into any issues (create dummy values for these if need be and delete them after the migration).

BIG HUGE NOTE - DON’T OVERLOOK THIS

Subscription and InvoiceItem migration is not possible because old records don’t have Stripe IDs (so we can’t sync them). Our approach is to delete all local subscription and invoiceitem objects and re-sync them from Stripe.

We 100% recommend you create a backup of your database before performing this upgrade.
