Django custom admins

Project Description

Django custom admins.
Don`t reinvent the bicycle and use django.contrib.admin everywhere.


BENEFITS of django.contrib.admin

* Used access control from django.contrib.admin
* Used inlines (generic inlines)
* Used fieldsets
* Used filters
* Used Actions
* Delete Confirmation
* Object history
* Pagination
* Widgets for dates, raw id field


Install from pypi, with pip::

pip install django-privatesite

Add ``privatesite`` to ``INSTALLED_APPS``::

INSTALLED_APPS = ("privatesite", ) + ('django.contrib.admin', ...)

Please note, that ``privatesite`` app must be upper
then ``django.contrib.admin app`` in ``INSTALLED_APPS`` list
to overload ``admin/base_site.html`` template


from privatesite.admin import CustomAdminSite

site1 = CustomAdminSite(name="site1", app_name="admin")

class MyPrivateZone(CustomAdminSite):
admin_base_template = 'my_zone/base.html'

site2 = MyPrivateZone(name="zone", app_name="admin")

personal = CustomAdminSite(name="personal", app_name="admin")

register models now

from myapp.models import Car, Animal, Human



urlpatterns += patterns("",
(r'^manage/admin/', include(site1.urls)),
(r'^private/admin/', include(site2.urls)),
(r'^personal/', include(personal.urls)),

And go to see, whats happen.

In template you may use

{% url 'site1:myapp_car_changeview' %}
{% url 'site2:myapp_car_change' car_id %}

{% url 'personal:myapp_human_history' human_id %}

If you want to add custom views, use this helper


* don`t work with django-admin-tools now (fix in near future)
* write tests
