Visually distinguish environments in Django Admin. Based on great advice from post: 5 ways to make Django Admin safer <>_ by hakibenita <>_.


  • Python 2.7, 3.4+
  • Django 1.9+


Install django-admin-env-notice::

pip install django-admin-env-notice

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS before django.contrib.admin:

.. code-block:: python


Add context processor:

.. code-block:: python

        "OPTIONS": {
            "context_processors": [

Set label and color for current environment:

.. code-block:: python

ENVIRONMENT_NAME = "Production server"

Override django admin selector if necessary (default: body), e.g: grappelli:

.. code-block:: python


Optionally, se the environment banner to float over instead of being fixed to the top:

.. code-block:: python
