Django ModelAdmin for the lazy.
Django’s default ModelAdmin is kinda dull. It only displays the __unicode__ column and that’s it. SmartAdmin attempts to create some more useful defaults for list_display, list_filter, etc., based on the model. (You can still manually specify whatever you want of course.)
This may be useful to you if you create new models often and want to have a usable admin for them without much work.
pip install django-smartadmin
Just use smartadmin.SmartAdmin instead of django.contrib.admin.ModelAdmin:
from smartadmin import SmartAdmin class MyModelAdmin(SmartAdmin): pass # or override something admin.site.register(MyModel, MyModelAdmin) # or just: admin.site.register(MyModel, SmartAdmin)
