This Django application is port the AdminLTE Template for easy integration into Django Framework

Project description


This Django application is port the `AdminLTE Template <>`_ for easy integration into Django Framework

Quick start

1. Add "bootstrap3" and "adminlte_full" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this::


2. Include the panels URLconf in your project like this::

url(r'^<url_url>/', include('adminlte_full.urls')),

Building an HTML menu

This application offers these elements to ease the construction of the HTML markup expected by AdminLTE to render the sidebar menu:

* A `template tag <adminlte_full/templatetags/>`_ named *show_menu*, which is already used by the `base-layout.html template file <adminlte_full/templates/adminlte_full/base-layout.html>`_ so you have to do nothing to render the menu!
* A `couple of classes <adminlte_full/>`_: MenuItem and Menu, which handle the inner data structure of the menu hierarchy and are agnostic and neutral about how you decide which items, links and parent-child relationships will be in the final menu
* A `Django Signal <>`_ available for you to get a chance to add MenuItem instances to the Menu object created by the *show_menu* tag

A simple real example would be involve some files, like the following ones.

* The URLs patterns file::

from django.conf.urls import url
from my_app.views import my_view_1, my_view_2, my_view_3
urlpatterns = [
url(r'^$', my_view_1, name='index'),
url(r'^$', my_view_2, name='view_2'),
url(r'^$', my_view_3, name='view_3'),

* The views file::

from import MenuItem, Menu
from django.shortcuts import render

def my_view_1(request):
return render(request, 'my_app/template_1.html')

def my_view_2(request):
return render(request, 'my_app/template_2.html')

def my_view_3(request):
return render(request, 'my_app/template_3.html')

def my_menuitems_builder(sender, **kwargs):
# sender is an instance of Menu class
single_menuitem_1 = MenuItem(1, 'Index', 'index')
parent_menuitem_2 = MenuItem(2, 'Parent Menu', '#')
single_menuitem_3 = MenuItem(3, 'Index', 'view_2')
single_menuitem_4 = MenuItem(4, 'Index', 'view_3')


* The template file::

{# templates/my_app/template_1.html #}
{% extends "adminlte_full/base-layout.html" %}

{% block page_title %}Title One{% endblock %}

{% block page_content %}
<h1>My header one</h1>
<p>My content one</p>
{% endblock %}
