Helper for building BREAD interfaces

Project description

Django Bread is a Django app to help build BREAD (Browse, Read, Edit, Add, Delete) views for Django models.

It helps with default templates, url generation, permissions, filters, pagination, and more.

This is relatively stable. We’re using it in production and have attempted to document the important parts, but feedback is welcome.

Breaking change in 1.0.0

Version 1.0.0 includes a breaking change! If you’re using the default view permissions, before upgrading, make sure you’ve migrated your users and groups that have “read_{model_name}” permissions to also have “view_{model_name}”. From 1.0.0 on, that’s the default permission a user needs to use the read views, because it’s become the standard Django permission for read-only access since Django 2.1.

If you’re still on Django 2.0, don’t upgrade django-bread until you can get to at least Django 2.1. (Hopefully that’s not the case, since Django 2.0 has been out of support since April 1, 2019.)

Supported versions

Django: 3.2, 4.2 Python: 3.8, 3.9, 3.10

For Python 2.7 and/or Django 1.11 support, the 0.5 release series is identical (features-wise) to 0.6 and is available on PyPI:

Maintainer Information

We use Github Actions to lint (using pre-commit, black, isort, and flake8), test (using tox and tox-gh-actions), calculate coverage (using coverage), and build documentation (using sphinx).

We have a local script to do these actions locally, named

$ ./

A Github Action workflow also builds and pushes a new package to PyPI whenever a new Release is created in Github. This uses a project-specific PyPI token, as described in the PyPI documentation here. That token has been saved in the PYPI_PASSWORD settings for this repo, but has not been saved anywhere else so if it is needed for any reason, the current one should be deleted and a new one generated.

As always, be sure to bump the version in bread/ before creating a Release, so that the proper version gets pushed to PyPI.

Questions or Issues?

If you have questions, issues or requests for improvements please let us know on Github.
