how to import csv data into django models


Question

I have some CSV data and I want to import into django models using the example CSV data:

1;"02-01-101101";"Worm Gear HRF 50";"Ratio 1 : 10";"input shaft, output shaft, direction A, color dark green";
2;"02-01-101102";"Worm Gear HRF 50";"Ratio 1 : 20";"input shaft, output shaft, direction A, color dark green";
3;"02-01-101103";"Worm Gear HRF 50";"Ratio 1 : 30";"input shaft, output shaft, direction A, color dark green";
4;"02-01-101104";"Worm Gear HRF 50";"Ratio 1 : 40";"input shaft, output shaft, direction A, color dark green";
5;"02-01-101105";"Worm Gear HRF 50";"Ratio 1 : 50";"input shaft, output shaft, direction A, color dark green";

I have some django models named Product. In Product there are some fields like name, description and price. I want something like this:

product=Product()
product.name = "Worm Gear HRF 70(02-01-101116)"
product.description = "input shaft, output shaft, direction A, color dark green"
product.price = 100

You want to use the csv module that is part of the python language and you should use Django's get_or_create method

 with open(path) as f:
        reader = csv.reader(f)
        for row in reader:
            _, created = Teacher.objects.get_or_create(
                first_name=row[0],
                last_name=row[1],
                middle_name=row[2],
                )
            # creates a tuple of the new object or
            # current object and a boolean of if it was created

In my example the model teacher has three attributes first_name, last_name and middle_name.
