Django admin classes that allow for nested inlines
django-nested-admin is a project that makes it possible to nest admin inlines (that is, to define inlines on InlineModelAdmin classes). It is compatible with Django 1.11+ and Python versions 2.7 and 3.4+ and works with or without Grappelli. When Grappelli is not installed it allows Grappelli-like drag-and-drop functionality.
The recommended way to install django-nested-admin is from PyPI:
pip install django-nested-admin
Alternatively, one can install a development copy of django-nested-admin from source:
pip install -e git+git://github.com/theatlantic/django-nested-admin.git#egg=django-nested-admin
If the source is already checked out, use setuptools to install:
python setup.py develop
To use django-nested-admin in your project, "nested_admin" must be added to the INSTALLED_APPS in your settings:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( # ... 'nested_admin', )
If you’re using django-grappelli, you will also need to add to include nested_admin.urls in your urlpatterns:
# Django 2+ urlpatterns = [ # ... path('_nested_admin/', include('nested_admin.urls')), ] # Django < 2 urlpatterns = [ # ... url(r'^_nested_admin/', include('nested_admin.urls')), ]
In order to use django-nested-admin, use the following classes in place of their django admin equivalents:
There is also nested_admin.NestedGenericStackedInline and nested_admin.NestedGenericTabularInline which are the nesting-capable versions of GenericStackedInline and GenericTabularInline in django.contrib.contenttypes.admin.
# An example admin.py for a Table of Contents app from django.contrib import admin import nested_admin from .models import TableOfContents, TocArticle, TocSection class TocArticleInline(nested_admin.NestedStackedInline): model = TocArticle sortable_field_name = "position" class TocSectionInline(nested_admin.NestedStackedInline): model = TocSection sortable_field_name = "position" inlines = [TocArticleInline] class TableOfContentsAdmin(nested_admin.NestedModelAdmin): inlines = [TocSectionInline] admin.site.register(TableOfContents, TableOfContentsAdmin)
django-nested-admin has fairly extensive test coverage. The best way to run the tests is with tox, which runs the tests against all supported Django installs. To run the tests within a virtualenv run pytest from the repository directory. The tests require a selenium webdriver to be installed. By default the tests run with phantomjs, but it is also possible to run the tests with the chrome webdriver by passing --selenosis-driver=chrome to pytest or, if running with tox, running tox -- --selenosis-driver=chrome. See pytest --help for a complete list of the options available.
