Installation

Install the package:

pip install django-admin-menu

Then add admin_menu to your INSTALLED_APPS setting, before django.contrib.admin (or it wont work). For example:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    'admin_menu',
    'django.contrib.admin',
    ...
]

Settings

There are a couple of options you can adjust in your settings.py to influence the theme.

To adjust the logo, change:

ADMIN_LOGO = 'logo.png'

The logo is used in the top left of each page and on the login page.

You can adjust the order of the menu items with the MENU_WEIGHT setting:

MENU_WEIGHT = {
    'World': 20,
    'Auth': 4,
    'Sample': 5
}

Items with a higher weight will be pushed to the end of the menu. You don't have to fill in all the menu items, just the ones you would like to adjust the position of.

ModelAdmin Settings

There are a few settings on your ModelAdmin class to adjust the menu:

class MyAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    menu_title = "Users"
    menu_group = "Staff"

will change the title for this model to Users and place it on a drop down titled Staff.

You can use the same menu_group on multiple ModelAdmin classes and they will be grouped on the same menu.

Theming

To adjust the theme, you can add and edit these options in your project's settings.py file:

ADMIN_STYLE = {
    'primary-color': '#164B36',
    'secondary-color': '#092117',
    'tertiary-color': '#51B48E'
}

These variables are usually enough to add a brand flavour to the admin. There are other variables you can add, to change text colour etc. These are listed under Custom Theme.
