A a set of templatetags to allow an easy and unobstrusive way to edit model-data in the frontend of your page.

Project Description

django-frontendadmin is a set of templatetags to allow an easy and unobstrusive way to edit model-data in the frontend of your page.

Example project

This package provides an easy example project, a weblog with comments. Here is a quick step-by-step guide how to get this running quickly:

  1. Open your terminal and cd to the django-frontendadmin/example_project/ directory.
  2. $ ./ syncdb and create a superuser.
  3. $ ./ loaddata testdata.json to load some sample data.
  4. $ ./ runserver and point your browser to
  5. Authenticate yourself with the username/password you provided in step 2.
  6. Go to the frontpage and start playing.
  7. Put some beer in your fridge and call me. :-)

Quick installation instruction

  1. Put frontendadmin in your INSTALLED_APPS in the of your django project.

  2. Add django.core.context_processors.request to your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS in the of your django project. If this is not available (default since some days) put this snippet into your settings:

  3. Include frontendadmin urls in your urlsconf:

    (r'^frontendadmin/', include('frontendadmin.urls')),
  4. Load the frontendadmin_tags library in every template you want to use the frontendamin links. (see below):

    {% load frontendadmin_tags %}
  5. There are three templatetags to either create, change or delete objects:

    {% frontendadmin_add queryset_of_objects %}
    {% frontendadmin_change object_to_change %}
    {% frontendadmin_delete object_to_delete %}

    Assumed that you have a weblog application and using generic-views, your template might look so:

    {% for entry in object_list %}
      <h2>{{ entry.title }}</h2>
      {{ entry.body }}
    {% endfor %}

    A proper implementation of frontendadmin would be:

    {% frontendadmin_add object_list %}
    {% for entry in object_list %}
      <h2>{{ entry.title }}</h2>
      {{ entry.body }}
      {% frontendadmin_change entry %}
      {% frontendadmin_delete entry %}
    {% endfor %}
  6. Thats all. Frontendadmin will automatically check whether the current user has add/change/delete permissions for the given model.

    Frontendadmin has build-in ajax support using the jquery library. See the template-sources for details.
