A simple Django app to build reports.
Django - OnMyDesk
A Django app to build reports in a simple way.
pip install django-onmydesk
Add ‘onmydesk’ to your INSTALLED_APPS:
INSTALLED_APPS = [ # ... 'onmydesk', ]
./manage.py migrate to create OnMyDesk models.
To create reports we need to follow just two steps:
- Create a report class in our django app.
- Add this report class to a config in you project settings to enable OnMyDesk to see your reports.
So, let’s do it!
Create a module called reports.py in you django app with the following content:
from onmydesk.core import reports class UsersReport(reports.SQLReport): name = 'Users report' query = 'SELECT * FROM auth_user'
On your project settings, add the following config:
ONMYDESK_REPORT_LIST = [ 'myapp.reports.UsersReport', ]
Each new report must be added to this list. Otherwise, it won’t be shown on admin screen.
Now, access your OnMyDesk admin screen and you’ll see your Users report available on report creation screen.
After you create a report, it’ll be status settled up as ‘Pending’, to process it you must run
process command. E.g:
$ ./manage.py process Found 1 reports to process Processing report #29 - 1 of 1 Report #29 processed
