Fresh Django permissions widget

Project Description

.. image::
.. image::

By default, Django's admin provides a permission widget which looks like this:

.. image::

There are several problems with this widget:

- the permission description is cut, see the fourth line:
'admin_test_autocomplete | bar | Can add l'. The administrator will not be
able to read it and might report it as a bug.
- it proposes permissions for `admin.logentry`. The administrator will not
understand what this is about and will ask you about it.
- it uses a widget which might be new to the administrator and he might ask how
to use it.

The purpose of this app is to provide a better widget for selecting permissions
as well as an easy way to replace the default permissions widget in your admin
site. It will look like this:

- Maintained against Python 2.7
- and Django 1.5

Quick Install

- Install the latest release via: `pip install django-permissions-widget`.
- Add to `settings.INSTALLED_APPS`, after `django.contrib.admin` which we want
to override: `'permissions_widget',`. If you are using custom user modeal as
for Django 1.5 - you have to add `'permissions_widget',` after the app, that
contains your custom user model.

That's it ! You should have a sane permissions widget now.
