Django: Invalidate Cached Property

Sometimes we create property within our model for utility helper. And django provide decorator “@cached_property” for caching heavy computation within our property.

class Member(models.Model):
    # field definitions.

    @cached_property
    def score(self):
        return # heavy computation/query

I got a problem once testing my model and the property is still load the cached version of data instead of the latest. Here is how to invalidate cached property.

del member.score          # Invalidate cache.
delattr(member, 'score')  # Alternative to invalidate cache.
