Flask-LwAdmin is minimalistic administrative interface building extension for the Flask framework

Project description

Flask Lightningwolf Admin

LwAdmin is a set of macros, classes, and methods to assist in the creation of administrative panels based on the bootstrap framework. At the moment we are working on the main section of the navigation and basic helpers for CRUD model.

The main assumptions of LwAdmin is not to restrict the coder. LwAdmin it is not a complete utility to be run as it is Flask-Admin

If you are just thinking about the basic CRUD scheme should rather think of using Flask-Admin. This plugin is to be useful only when you need a custom administration panel - creating new pages requires that in this case more work to gain same effect.

At the moment we use a bootstrap version 2.3.x, but in the near future will be updated to version 3.0.x. We are waiting for jQuery UI Bootstrap (v1.0) to have both Flask-Bootsrap and Flask-JqueryUiBootstrap in this version.


The project uses the Semantic Versioning 2.0.0. Work is currently underway, but because Flask-LwAdmin is already being used in production enviroment then API changes occur only in case of change parameter y in (0.y.z)


Check SAMPLE_PROJECT for basic use example. More advanced use in this moment can be check in: Lightningwolf Smp Project


The documentation will be created in the near future. We know how important good documentation is for the proper development of the project.
