See REQUIREMENTS in the file for additional dependencies:

python django djangocms


For a manual install:

  • run pip install djangocms-admin-style
  • add djangocms_admin_style to your INSTALLED_APPS just before 'django.contrib.admin'
  • run python migrate djangocms_admin_style


The django CMS Admin Style overrides django admin’s base_site.html, but you can still partially customize this page. Look at the source of templates/admin/base_site.html and override the templates that are included in various blocks. For example, you can add your own CSS in templates/admin/inc/extrastyle.html.

The following additional settings can be set:

  • CMS_ENABLE_UPDATE_CHECK = True Set to False to disable the update notification.
  • CMS_UPDATE_CHECK_TYPE = ('minor') Set to ('patch') to get only patch notifications. (minor = 3.x.x, patch = 3.4.x)

The update checker does not gather or record any data.

To compile CSS run the following commands:

  • npm install
  • gulp

For further options have a look at the gulpfile.js.

Running Tests

In order to run integration tests you need to have Docker installed.

You can run tests by executing:

make test20

The integration tests are written using Casperjs, phantomcss and djangocms-casper-helpers.
