Installation

  • Download and install latest version of Django JET:
pip install djet2
  • Add 'jet' application to the INSTALLED_APPS setting of your Django project settings.py file (note it should be before 'django.contrib.admin'):
INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...,
    'jet',
    'django.contrib.admin',
)
  • Make sure django.template.context_processors.request context processor is enabled in settings.py (Django 1.8+ way):
TEMPLATES = [
    {
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': [],
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [
                ...,
                'django.template.context_processors.request',
                ...,
            ],
        },
    },
]
  • Add URL-pattern to the urlpatterns of your Django project urls.py file (they are needed for related–lookups and autocompletes):
urlpatterns = patterns(
    '',
    path('jet/', include('jet.urls', 'jet')),  # Django JET URLS
    path('admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),
    ...
)
  • Create database tables:
python manage.py migrate jet
  • Collect static if you are in production environment:
python manage.py collectstatic
  • Clear your browser cache:
    • firefox/chrome: Cmd+Shift+R (Ctrl+Shift+R) for hard reload

Dashboard installation

Dashboard is located into a separate application. So after a typical JET installation it won't be active. To enable dashboard application follow these steps:

  • Add 'jet.dashboard' application to the INSTALLED_APPS setting of your Django project settings.py file (note it should be before 'jet'):
INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...,
    'jet.dashboard',
    'jet',
    'django.contrib.admin',
    ...,
)
  • Add URL-pattern to the urlpatterns of your Django project urls.py file (they are needed for related–lookups and autocompletes):
urlpatterns = patterns(
    '',
    path('jet/', include('jet.urls', 'jet')),  # Django JET URLS
    path('jet/dashboard/', include('jet.dashboard.urls', 'jet-dashboard')),  # Django JET dashboard URLS
    path('admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),
    ...,
)
  • For Google Analytics widgets only install python package:
pip install djet2[google_analytics]
# or 
pip install google-api-python-client==1.4.1
  • Create database tables:
python manage.py migrate dashboard
  • Collect static if you are in production environment:
python manage.py collectstatic
