Add-another pop-ups a la django-admin.

Project Description

Add-another pop-ups a la django-admin.

The popup views are implemented using a mixin to the generic CreateView. Also, the popups now support permissions. As a result, a user will only get the add-another link next to a ForeignKey or a ManyToMany field if he has the add permission for the target model.


Get it from the cheeseshop:

pip install django_popcorn


Read on:

  1. Include the following in your INSTALLED_APPS settings:

  2. Add this to your (If you do not already have it):

    POPCORN_MODELS = ('auth.Group', 'auth.Permission')
  3. Add the following to your base.html template:

    <script src="{{ ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX }}js/admin/RelatedObjectLookups.js"></script>
  4. We will create a view for auth.User and use the utility get_popcorn_urls function to generate popcorn views and urls:

    urlpatterns = patterns('',
        url(r'^$', CreateView.as_view(model=User, success_url='.'), name='auth_user_create'),
        url(r'^admin/', include(,
    urlpatterns += get_popcorn_urls()
  1. Render your forms like so:

    <form method="POST" action="{{ request.get_full_path }}">
        {% csrf_token %}
        {% include 'popcorn/form.html' %}
        <button type="submit">Submit</button>
        <a href="../">Cancel</a>

Thats it! sync your DB, run the dev server and fire up your browser at localhost. You should see a form wthout the add-another links. This is because popcorn add-another links are only enabled for users who have add permission for the target model. Now log-in - possibly via admin after enabling it and hit localhost again. You should see a little + next to ForeignKey and ManyToMany fields. Click it and the add-another popup would appear. If you are having any problems, please check out the test project for a working implementation.
