Project description

Nexus is a pluggable admin application in Django. It’s designed to give you a simple design and architecture for building admin applications.

It was originally created by Disqus, but due to the inactivity we at YPlan have taken over maintenance on this fork.



Tested with all combinations of:

  • Python: 2.7
  • Django: 1.7, 1.8


Install it with pip (or easy_install):

pip install nexus-yplan

Make sure you pip uninstall nexus first if you’re upgrading from the original to this fork - the packages clash.


You’ll need to enable it much like you would django.contrib.admin.

First, add it to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:


Now you’ll want to include it within your

import nexus

# sets up the default nexus site by detecting all files

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    ('^nexus/', include(,

By default Nexus requires django.contrib.auth and django.contrib.sessions. If you are using a custom auth system you can skip these requirements by using the setting NEXUS_SKIP_INSTALLED_APPS_REQUIREMENTS = True in your django settings.


Nexus by default includes a module that will automatically pick up django.contrib.admin.

Other applications which provide Nexus modules:

N.B. Those that have not been forked by YPlan probably aren’t up to date to work with newer Django versions.

If you want to write a module, look at the example_module folder for a hello world implementation. Also the source code shouldn’t be too hard to understand.
