Admin helpers

Project description

Django Model Admin Helpers

Link to repository:

Provides classes to extend default django admin functionality:

  • ButtonableModelAdmin

  • ModelAdminWithForeignKeyLinksMetaclass - adds clickable foreign key links at admin interface in list view; Uses list_display fields to try adding link to the field in list item.

  • AdminURLMixin - provides ability to extend /admin/ urls and make views to urls like: /admin/myurl.


from admin_helpers import ButtonableModelAdmin, AdminURLMixin, ModelAdminWithForeignKeyLinksMetaclass

class MyModelAdmin(AdminURLMixin, ButtonableModelAdmin):
    __metaclass__ = ModelAdminWithForeignKeyLinksMetaclass

    list_display = ('title', 'link_to_user') # user is a foreignkey field of the MyModel

    def get_urls(self):
        urls = super(MyModelAdmin, self).get_urls()
        my_urls = patterns('',
            (r'^my_view/$', self.my_view)
        return my_urls + urls

    def my_view(self, request):
        # custom view which should return an HttpResponse

Note: Notice that the custom patterns are included before the regular admin URLs: the admin URL patterns are very permissive and will match nearly anything, so you’ll usually want to prepend your custom URLs to the built-in ones. In this example, my_view will be accessed at /admin/myapp/mymodel/my_view/ (assuming the admin URLs are included at /admin/.)
