Code coverage

One of the most useful parts of django.contrib.admin is the ability to configure various views that touch and alter data. django-admin2 is a complete rewrite of that library using modern Class-Based Views and enjoying a design focused on extendibility and adaptability. By starting over, we can avoid the legacy code and make it easier to write extensions and themes.

Installation

Use pip to install from PyPI:

pip install django-admin2

Add djadmin2 and rest_framework to your settings file:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'djadmin2',
    'rest_framework', # for the browsable API templates
    ...
)

Add setting for apps and the default theme in your settings file:

# In settings.py
INSTALLED_APPS += ('djadmin2.themes.djadmin2theme_bootstrap3',)
REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    'DEFAULT_PAGINATION_CLASS': 'rest_framework.pagination.PageNumberPagination',
    'PAGE_SIZE': 10
}
ADMIN2_THEME_DIRECTORY = "djadmin2theme_bootstrap3"

Add djadmin2 urls to your URLconf:

# urls.py
from django.conf.urls import include

from djadmin2.site import djadmin2_site

djadmin2_site.autodiscover()

urlpatterns = [
  ...
  url(r'^admin2/', include(djadmin2_site.urls)),
]

How to write django-admin2 modules

# myapp/admin2.py
# Import your custom models
from django.contrib.auth.forms import UserCreationForm, UserChangeForm
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from djadmin2.site import djadmin2_site
from djadmin2.types import ModelAdmin2

from .models import Post, Comment


class UserAdmin2(ModelAdmin2):
    # Replicates the traditional admin for django.contrib.auth.models.User
    create_form_class = UserCreationForm
    update_form_class = UserChangeForm


#  Register each model with the admin
djadmin2_site.register(Post)
djadmin2_site.register(Comment)
djadmin2_site.register(User, UserAdmin2)

Migrating from 0.6.x

  • The default theme has been updated to bootstrap3, be sure to replace your reference to the new one.
  • Django rest framework also include multiple pagination system, the only one supported now is the PageNumberPagination.

Therefore, your [settings]{.title-ref} need to include this:

# In settings.py
INSTALLED_APPS += ('djadmin2.themes.djadmin2theme_bootstrap3',)
ADMIN2_THEME_DIRECTORY = "djadmin2theme_bootstrap3"

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    'DEFAULT_PAGINATION_CLASS': 'rest_framework.pagination.PageNumberPagination',
    'PAGE_SIZE': 10
}

The default admin2 site has move into djadmin2.site make sure your use the news djadmin2_site in your urls.py:

# urls.py
from django.conf.urls import include

from djadmin2.site import djadmin2_site

djadmin2_site.autodiscover()

urlpatterns = [
  ...
  url(r'^admin2/', include(djadmin2_site.urls)),
]

Migrating from 0.5.x

Themes are now defined explicitly, including the default theme. Therefore, your [settings]{.title-ref} need to include this:

# In settings.py
INSTALLED_APPS += ('djadmin2.themes.djadmin2theme_default',)
ADMIN2_THEME_DIRECTORY = "djadmin2theme_default"

Drop-In Themes

The default theme is whatever bootstrap is most current. Specifically:

# In settings.py
INSTALLED_APPS += ('djadmin2.themes.djadmin2theme_bootstrap3',)
ADMIN2_THEME_DIRECTORY = "djadmin2theme_bootstrap3"

If you create a new theme, you define it thus:

# In settings.py
# Mythical theme! This does not exit... YET!
INSTALLED_APPS += ('djadmin2theme_foundation',)
ADMIN2_THEME_DIRECTORY = "djadmin2theme_foundation"
