Re: Django runserver needs restart on psql data changes

Hi Carl - that was *exactly* what I was doing - thanks a ton for finding that issue even without requiring the code. Now that I think about it, putting that definition in the global section makes absolutely no sense.

Appreciate your feedback,

Using a variable is fine; the problem is that (I'm guessing) you are
creating that variable at the top level of the module. Such code is only
run once, when the module is first imported.

You need to make sure that all database queries are run only inside view
functions (or methods of view classes), never at the top-level of a module.
