Django admin enhancer

Project description

Translate app names and allow singletons

This is a simple Django app to enable translation of app names in
Django admin and allow the use of singletons.
When an object is marked as a singleton only one instance will be allowed to exist.

Detailed documentation is in the "docs" directory.

Quick start

1. Add "django_singleton_app_name" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this::


2. Copy templates from django-admin-app-names-singleton/templates
to your project's template directory.
All app names will now be translated when possible.
In order to add app names to .po files via "makemessages"
create a python file "" next to your "" file
and paste the following import into it:
"from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _".
For each app you want to mark for translation add a line such as the following:

3. To mark a model as a singleton you must subclass that model from
And create a ModelAdmin for that model that subclasses
and overwrite the ModelAdmin's member "model" with the Model's class
class ContactInformation(SingletonBaseModel):
address = models.CharField(max_length=65)
email = models.EmailField()

class ContactInfoAdmin(SingletonModelAdmin):
model = ContactInformation
