mezzanine-grappelli makes Mezzanine ♥ Grappelli

Project description

Mezzanine-Grappelli makes Mezzanine ♥ Grappelli.

For compatibility reasons, Mezzanine uses forks of Grappelli and Filebrowser, known as grappelli-safe and filebrowser-safe.

You want the awesomeness of Mezzanine with the sweetness of the latest Grappelli version? This application does exactly that: it allows you to use the full power of the latest vanilla versions of both Grappelli and Filebrowser in your Mezzanine projects.


First, install mezzanine-grappelli with pip (this will automatically install Grappelli and Filebrowser as well):

pip install mezzanine-grappelli



Still in your file, add mezzanine_grappelli, grappelli and filebrowser to your INSTALLED_APPS (make sure they appear before any mezzanine app):


Add Grappelli URLs to your file:

urlpatterns += patterns("",
    ("^grappelli/", include("grappelli.urls")),

You’re done!

Rough edges

The project still being in its early days, it has a few rough edges you should be aware of.

TabularDynamicInlineAdmin doesn’t work

Use classic Django TabularInline instead.

Filebrowser error: “Error finding Upload-Folder ( + Maybe it does not exist?”

That’s because Filebrowser doesn’t automatically create the uploads directory, so just create the MEDIA_ROOT + 'uploads/' directory

FileField doesn’t work

When using FileField fields you need to put the format in lowercase (ie. “image” instead of “Image”) otherwise you’ll get a Filebrowser exception. That’s especially true for already defined Mezzanine models (such as the BlogPost model). To fix the issue for already-defined Mezzanine models, you can add the following to your settings file:

    'File': ['Folder', 'Image', 'Document', 'Video', 'Audio'],
    'Document': ['Document'],
    'Media': ['Video', 'Audio'],
    'Image': ['Image'],
    'image': ['Image'],


  • Make TabularDynamicInlineAdmin work or at least fall back to a usable solution
