(This post is mostly for my own reference)

James Bennett mentions a Django style guide in his book Practical Django Projects. I couldn’t find reference to it, but the following is the order of things when it comes to models:

  1. Any constants and/or lists of choices
  2. The full list of fields
  3. The Meta class if present
  4. The Admin class if present
  5. The __unicode__() method
  6. The save() method, if its being overridden
  7. The get_absolute_url() method, if present
  8. Any additional custom methods
