Problems with postgres fields

See original GitHub issue

Django now supports postgres fields like ArrayField, JSONField, HStoreField etc.

seed management command as well as seeder.add_entity fails since they are not been detected with FieldTypeGuesser.

It would be great to have this support at least at the add_entity level.

Ok, this should be resolved to at least not fail. #77 catches model types that do not have a guesser but does have a _default_hint (here is the line), and #80 allows you to pass a dict of objects that won’t be handled by the guesser:

seeder.add_entity(Player, 10, {
    'score':    lambda x: random.randint(0, 1000),
    'nickname': lambda x:,

I’m going to close this issue, but please reopen if extra functionality is needed! 😃

@diego-capyba I’ll see if I can take a look at this in the next week or so.
