    • list_display
    • list_filter
    • raw_id_fields
    • search_fields


  • actions configurator
  • base admin class support


  • Django 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, trunk. Django 1.1 is NOT supported.
  • Python 2.6 or 2.7

Installation guide

Install from pypi, with pip:

pip install django-admin-customizer

Or with setuptools:

easy_install django-admin-customizer

Add admin_customizer to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS += ("admin_customizer", )

Add the admin customizer’s urls to your root url conf. This is the url where your will access your custom admin instances. Eg: in your project’s add:

(r'^admin/_/', include('admin_customizer.urls')),

After that you need to run: syncdb

Or if you use south: syncdb --migrate

You need to update admin_customizer’s models to get it working, initially and after each model change with: refresh_available_fields


If you delete models the registered admins will be deleted for them.

If you delete fields from models the registered admins will have them removed after you run refresh_available_fields.

django-admin-customizer has static files for widgets in the edit interface. If you use staticfiles just run: collectstatic

If you do not use django.contrib.staticfiles you must manually symlink the site-packages/admin_customizer/static/admin_customizer dir to <your media root>/admin_customizer.

Making extra actions available



ADMIN_CUSTOMIZER_MAX_FIELD_DEPTH - depth to look for relations when inspecting models.


To enable urlpattern reloading add 'admin_customizer.middleware.URLResolverReloadMiddleware' to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES.


You must have working django cache for this to work properly ! See django’s cache documentation on this.

If you do not enable this you will have to restart the webserver after every AdminSite or RegisteredModel change !
