Django Groot

Project description


Django Groot

An alternative admin interface for managing group permissions with django-guardian. Groot requires django-guardian for maintaining permissions, however Groot only focuses on groups for object permissions - per user object level permissions aren’t allowed for simplicity.


Using pip:

$ pip install django-groot

Follow the instructions for installing django-guardian if you haven’t already.

Edit your Django project’s settings module, and add groot:

    # ...


Add GrootAdminMixin to the admin class you want Groot to be used on:

from django.contrib import admin
from groot.admin import GrootAdminMixin

from .models import Post

class PostAdmin(GrootAdminMixin, admin.ModelAdmin):

To limit the permissions which can be edited, add a groot_permissions attribute:

class PostAdmin(GrootAdminMixin, admin.ModelAdmin):
    groot_permissions = ('change_post', 'delete_post')
