Project description


Group fieldsets or inlinegroups into tabs for django admin's changeform.


pip install django-tabbed-changeform-admin




  • We used jquery and jquery-ui's static files, so we MUST add django_static_jquery_ui in INSTALLED_APPS.
  • We override admin/change_form.html, so we MUST add django_tabbed_changeform_admin in INSTALLED_APPS.



  • Create ModelAdmin based on DjangoTabbedChangeformAdmin.
  • Add a sepcial class name to every fieldset or inline group.
  • Add tabs property to admin. It's a list of (Tab-Name, Content-Class-Names) pair.
  • You can get tabs dynamically by overriding method get_tabs(self, request, object_id, form_url, extra_context).
from django.contrib import admin
from django_tabbed_changeform_admin.admin import DjangoTabbedChangeformAdmin
from .models import Book
from .models import Character

class CharacterInline(admin.TabularInline):
    model = Character
    extra = 0
    classes = ["tab-character-inline"]

class BookAdmin(DjangoTabbedChangeformAdmin, admin.ModelAdmin):
    save_on_top = True
    list_display = ["name", "published_time", "publisher"]
    fieldsets = [
        (None, {
            "fields": ["name"],
            "classes": ["tab-basic"],
        ("Publish Information", {
            "fields": ["published_time", "publisher"],
            "classes": ["tab-publish-info"],
    inlines = [

    tabs = [
        ("Basic Information", ["tab-basic", "tab-publish-info"]),
        ("Characters", ["tab-character-inline"]),
    ], BookAdmin)
