Slick admin styles for Django and django CMS.

Project description

Django Slick Admin

A slick & clean look for your Django (>=1.10) admin interface.

Slick admin works completely unobtrusive and does everything via CSS. Well not everything - there are some optional & tiny bits of JavaScript involved as well.

Slick admin works with the standard Django admin - and comes with support for:

Installing

Using the latest version from PyPI:

pip install django-slick-admin

Using this GitHub repository:

pip install -e "git://github.com/palmbeach-interactive/django-slick-admin.git#egg=django-slick-admin"

Then add django_slick_admin to INSTALLED_APPS, before django.contrib.admin.

CMS front end editing

To have the same color schema in the CMS front end there is a template tag included which loads additional CSS styles if 'editing mode' is enabled. To use them load slick_admin_tags in your base template and add slick_admin_cms_style next to cms_toolbar.

{% load cms_tags sekizai_tags slick_admin_tags %}
...
<body>
    {% cms_toolbar %}
    {% slick_admin_cms_style %}
    ...

Settings

To have a consistent look both for front end editing and administrative interface there are some additional styles available in 'cms mode'. The 'cms mode' is automatically activated when cms is present in your INSTALLED_APPS - but you can also override this behaviour with

SLICK_ADMIN_CMS_ENABLED = True # False

Same behaviour applies for the admin-tools Dashboard. Automatically set to True if admin_tools.dashboard in INSTALLED_APPS.

SLICK_ADMIN_DASHBOARD_ENABLED = True # False

Stylesheet locations:

SLICK_ADMIN_CSS = <path>     # default: STATIC_URL + 'django_slick_admin/css/django-slick-admin.css'

SLICK_ADMIN_CMS_CSS = <path> # default: STATIC_URL + 'django_slick_admin/css/cms-styles.css'

Dashboard Customization:

If you have django-admin-tools dashboard installed it's advised to copy the included templates in admin_tools/dashboard folder into your local projects templates folder.

Customization

Start with customizing the included admin/base_site.html template.

Stylesheets

The stylesheets are based on Sass and live in the separate django-slick-admin-styles repository.

The versions/tags for the styles are aligned with the main repository. So if - for example - you are installing django-slick-admin==0.1.1 you should use the '0.1.1' version for the styles as well.

Quick & dirty way to compile stylesheets with adjusted settings

Install required npm modules:

npm install -D https://github.com/palmbeach-interactive/django-slick-admin-styles
npm install -D node-sass

Create a sass file - e.g. custom-admin-styles.sass to override some defaults and import django-slick-admin-styles. See _defaults.sass for vailable settings.

// custom-admin-styles.sass
@charset "UTF-8"

$color-primary: #00ccff
$color-secondary: #ffcc00

@import settings/base
@import mixins/base
@import components/base
@import admin_tools/base

Run sass compiler (adjust output path according to your setup):

./node_modules/node-sass/bin/node-sass \
--include-path ./node_modules/django-slick-admin-styles/sass \
custom-admin-styles.sass  \
./site-static/django_slick_admin/css/django-slick-admin.css

Integrate via Gulp tasks

Intall all needed npm packages:

npm install

gulpfile.js: See gulpfile.js for reference.

gulp.task('admin-styles', function () {
    return gulp.src([
            './sass/admin/custom.sass'
        ])
        .pipe(sass({
            includePaths: './node_modules/django-slick-admin-styles/sass/',
            outputStyle: 'expanded',
            precision: 10
        }))
        .pipe(autoprefixer({browsers: AUTOPREFIXER_BROWSERS}))
        .pipe(concat('django-slick-admin.css'))
        .pipe(gulp.dest('website/site-static/django_slick_admin/css/'))
});
