Widgets and admin mixin to display remaining characters in django admin.

Project description

# Django CharsLeft Widgets & Admin Mixin

Inspired from [django-charsleft-widget](
by [Timmy O'Mahony](
and [django-charsleft-widget](
by [Basil Shubin](

*django-admin-charsleft* provides a simple way to add information to django's admin interface about the remaining
characters for both `CharField` and `TextField` inputs, relying on the `max_length` attribute.

*django-admin-charsleft* - as the name implies - is intended for the use inside [django-admin](), whereas the original
projects provide more generic widgets.

It plays nice with the default django-admin (>=1.9) - and also seamlessly integrates
with [django-slick-admin](

### Installation

Using the latest version from PyPI:

pip install django-admin-charsleft

Using this GitHub repository:

pip install -e "git://"

Then add `charsleft` to `INSTALLED_APPS`.

### Usage

#### As Admin Mixin

*django-admin-charsleft* provides a `CharsLeftAdminMixin` class that can be used to extend your admin classes:

from charsleft.admin import CharsLeftAdminMixin

class MyModelAdmin(CharsLeftAdminMixin, admin.ModelAdmin):

The mixin can be used on `admin.ModelAdmin` and as well on `admin.TabularInline` and `admin.StackedInline`.
