Drag-and-drop ordering for objects and inlines in Django admin using django-suit.

Project description

Drag-and-drop ordering for objects and inlines in Django admin using [django-suit](

## Installation

pip install -e git://

## Configuration

  1. Add suit_sortable to your INSTALLED_APPS.

  2. Ensure django.core.context_processors.static is in your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS.

To use suit_sortable you must do following:

In your file add integer property for sortable to you model:

from django.db import models

class Category(models.Model):

… position = models.PositiveIntegerField()

### Adding Sortable to an existing model

If you’re adding Sorting to an existing model, it is recommended that you use [django-south]( to create a schema migration to add the “position” field to your model. You will also need to create a data migration in order to add the appropriate values for the position column.

Example assuming a model named “Category”:

def forwards(self, orm):
for index, category in enumerate(orm.Category.objects.all()):

category.position = index + 1

### Django Admin Integration To enable sorting in the admin, you need to inherit from SortableAdmin and add a list_editable column for the position field:

from django.contrib import admin from myapp.models import MySortableClass from suit_sortable.admin import SortableAdmin

class MySortableAdminClass(SortableAdmin):

list_display = (…, ‘position’,) list_editable = (‘position’,) “””Any other admin options you need go here”””, MySortableAdminClass)

To enable sorting on TabularInline models, you need to inherit from SortableTabularInline:

from suit_sortable.admin import SortableTabularInline

class MySortableTabularInline(SortableTabularInline):

“””Your inline options go here”””

To enable sorting on StackedInline models, you need to inherit from SortableStackedInline:

from suit_sortable.admin import SortableStackedInline

class MySortableStackedInline(SortableStackedInline):

“””Your inline options go here”””

### Limitations

Since sortables are based on JavaScript solution, there are known limitations:

  1. It doesn’t work with pagination.
