Simple and extensible admin interface framework for Flask
The project was recently moved into its own organization. Please update your references to firstname.lastname@example.org:flask-admin/flask-admin.git.
Flask-Admin is a batteries-included, simple-to-use Flask extension that lets you add admin interfaces to Flask applications. It is inspired by the django-admin package, but implemented in such a way that the developer has total control of the look, feel and functionality of the resulting application.
Out-of-the-box, Flask-Admin plays nicely with various ORM’s, including
It also boasts a simple file management interface and a redis client console.
The biggest feature of Flask-Admin is flexibility. It aims to provide a set of simple tools that can be used for building admin interfaces of any complexity. So, to start off with you can create a very simple application in no time, with auto-generated CRUD-views for each of your models. But then you can go further and customize those views & forms as the need arises.
Flask-Admin is an active project, well-tested and production ready.
Several usage examples are included in the /examples folder. Please feel free to add your own examples, or improve on some of the existing ones, and then submit them via GitHub as a pull-request.
You can see some of these examples in action at http://examples.flask-admin.org. To run the examples on your local environment, one at a time, do something like:
cd flask-admin python examples/simple/app.py
Flask-Admin is extensively documented, you can find all of the documentation at http://flask-admin.readthedocs.org/en/latest/.
The docs are auto-generated from the .rst files in the /doc folder. So if you come across any errors, or if you think of anything else that should be included, then please make the changes and submit them as a pull-request.
To build the docs in your local environment, from the project directory:
pip install -r requirements-dev.txt sudo make html
And if you want to preview any .rst snippets that you may want to contribute, go to http://rst.ninjs.org/.
To install Flask-Admin, simply:
