Perform action on model delete

Oct 08, 2013 · Updated: Nov 04, 2017 · by Tim Kamanin

Surprise, surprise, when you want to perform some actions on model delete,
overriding delete() method may be not enough, because when you do bulk delete
of models via admin interface it won't touch model's delete() method. The way
out of it is using signals:

@receiver(post_delete, sender=Model)
def model_delete(sender, instance, **kwargs):
# Do your on delete action here.
