Custom ordering for the apps and models in the admin app.

Project description



* Reorder apps in admin index — this will allow you to position most used apps in top of the page, instead of listing apps alphabetically. e.g. ``sites`` app before the ``auth`` app

* Rename app labels easily for third party apps without having to modify the source code. e.g. rename ``auth`` app to ``Authorisation`` for the django admin app.

* Reorder models within an app. e.g. ``auth.User`` model before the ``auth.Group`` model.

* Exclude any of the models from the app list. e.g. Exclude ``auth.Group`` from the app list. Please note this only excludes the model from the app list and it doesn't protect it from access via url.

* Cross link models from multiple apps. e.g. Add ``sites.Site`` model to the ``auth`` app.

* Rename individual models in the app list. e.g. rename ``auth.User`` from ``User`` to ``Staff``
