Project description


Provide a simple way to add extra context for view rendering in Django's admin site.


pip install django-with-extra-context-admin



There is NO need to add app name django_with_extra_context_admin into INSTALLED_APPS. Just install this application and import the admin extention DjangoWithExtraContextAdmin where you need.


from django.contrib import admin
from django_with_extra_context_admin.admin import DjangoWithExtraContextAdmin
from .models import MyModel

class MyModelAdmin(DjangoWithExtraContextAdmin, admin.ModelAdmin):

    django_with_extra_context_admin_view_name = False

    def get_extra_context(self, request, **kwargs):
        extra_context = super().get_extra_context(request, **kwargs) or {}
            "var1": "value1",
            "var2": "value2",
        return extra_context, MyModelAdmin)

Where to use?

All admin's default views are inject with the extra context.

  • changeform_view
  • changelist_view
  • delete_view
  • history_view
  • add_view
  • change_view

Any extra context provided?

By default we always add django_with_extra_context_admin_view_name to the extra context. It can be disabled by set add_django_with_extra_context_admin_view_name to False. The value of variable django_with_extra_context_admin_view_name is the the name of current view name, e.g. changeform_view, changelist_view.
