How to Redesign & Customize the Django Admin with Bootstrap

The Django administration site is great — fully-featured, easy to use, secure by design, rock solid … and somewhat ugly, which can be something of a downside when you want to integrate it with the look and feel of the rest of your website. Let’s sort that out.

If It Ain’t Broke …

The default Django admin

Say you’ve just prototyped a web app with Django and Vue.js. For a wide array of cases, using Django’s admin for back office purposes as is, and even handling it over to your client after appropriately setting permissions, is just fine. After all, it works perfectly well and it can be heavily customized with the built-in tools to cover many situations.

So again, why bother?

Reasons to Hack the Look and Feel of the Admin

However, there are a number of valid reasons to take integration a step further:

  • Branding: there’s nothing wrong in wanting the name and colors of your company instead of “Django administration” (and for the record, this is in compliance with Django’s BSD license).
  • Seamless integration between main site and admin: you might want to be able to transition between back office functionality while navigating the site, and vice versa, by having a common navigation bar.
  • Prettifying: while the admin looks okay, and it has even implemented responsive web design principles ever since v2 (it works well on both, mobile and desktop), there’s a lot a well-crafted style sheet can do to make it look better.
  • Bypass functionality: you might also just want to create custom dropdown menus for the admin, displaying the options that you actually use and hiding from the user interface what you don’t really need, which could make for a better user experience.

How model queries work in Django

How model queries work in Django

Welcome to my blog, hey everyone in this article we are going to be working with queries in Django so for any web app that you build your going to want to write a query so you can retrieve information from your database so in this article I’ll be showing you all the different ways that you can write queries and it should cover about 90% of the cases that you’ll have when you’re writing your code the other 10% depend on your specific use case you may have to get more complicated but for the most part what I cover in this article should be able to help you so let’s start with the model that I have I’ve already created it.

**Read More : **How to make Chatbot in Python.

Read More : Django Admin Full Customization step by step

let’s just get into this diagram that I made so in here:

django queries aboutDescribe each parameter in Django querset

we’re making a simple query for the myModel table so we want to pull out all the information in the database so we have this variable which is gonna hold a return value and we have our myModel models so this is simply the myModel model name so whatever you named your model just make sure you specify that and we’re gonna access the objects attribute once we get that object’s attribute we can simply use the all method and this will return all the information in the database so we’re gonna start with all and then we will go into getting single items filtering that data and go to our command prompt.

Here and we’ll actually start making our queries from here to do this let’s just go ahead and run** Python manage.py shell** and I am in my project file so make sure you’re in there when you start and what this does is it gives us an interactive shell to actually start working with our data so this is a lot like the Python shell but because we did manage.py it allows us to do things a Django way and actually query our database now open up the command prompt and let’s go ahead and start making our first queries.

Django Admin Bootstrapped: A Django Admin Theme Using Bootstrap

django-admin-bootstrapped

A Django admin theme using Bootstrap. It doesn't need any kind of modification on your side, just add it to the installed apps.

Requirements

  • Django ==1.8

With Django 1.6 use version 2.3.6

With Django 1.7 use version 2.4.0

Installation

  1. Download it from PyPi with pip install django-admin-bootstrapped
  2. Add into the INSTALLED_APPS before 'django.contrib.admin':
'django_admin_bootstrapped',
  1. Have fun!

Configuration

For a full bootstrap3 experience you may want to use a custom renderer for the fields. There's one available in tree that requires the django-bootstrap3 application installed. You have to add to your project settings file:

DAB_FIELD_RENDERER = 'django_admin_bootstrapped.renderers.BootstrapFieldRenderer'

Messages will have alert-info tag by default, so you may want to add Bootstrap 3 tags for different message levels to make them styled appropriately. Add to your project settings file:

from django.contrib import messages

MESSAGE_TAGS = {
            messages.SUCCESS: 'alert-success success',
            messages.WARNING: 'alert-warning warning',
            messages.ERROR: 'alert-danger error'
}

Now, adding messages like this:

messages.success(request, "My success message")
messages.warning(request, "My warning message")
messages.error(request, "My error message")

will result into this:

Add custom html to the change form of any model with a template

You can inject custom html on top of any change form creating a template named admin_model_MODELNAME_change_form.html into the application's template folder. Eg: myapp/templates/myapp/admin_model_mymodelname_change_form.html or project/templates/myapp/admin_model_mymodelname_change_form.html.

Inline sortable

You can add drag&drop sorting capability to any inline with a couple of changes to your code.

First, add a position field in your model (and sort your model accordingly), for example:

class TestSortable(models.Model):
    that = models.ForeignKey(TestMe)
    position = models.PositiveSmallIntegerField("Position")
    test_char = models.CharField(max_length=5)

    class Meta:
        ordering = ('position', )

Then in your admin.py create a class to handle the inline using the django_admin_bootstrapped.admin.models.SortableInline mixin, like this:

from django_admin_bootstrapped.admin.models import SortableInline
from models import TestSortable

class TestSortable(admin.StackedInline, SortableInline):
    model = TestSortable
    extra = 0

You can now use the inline as usual. See the screenshots section to see what the result will look like.

This feature was brought to you by Kyle Bock. Thank you Kyle!

XHTML Compatible

Compatible with both html and xhtml. To enable xhtml for your django app add the following to your settings.py: DEFAULT_CONTENT_TYPE = 'application/xhtml+xml'

Generic lookups in admin

All that needs to be done is change the admin widget with either formfield_overrides like this:

from django_admin_bootstrapped.widgets import GenericContentTypeSelect

class SomeModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    formfield_overrides = {
        models.ForeignKey: {'widget': GenericContentTypeSelect},
    }

Or if you want to be more specific:

from django_admin_bootstrapped.widgets import GenericContentTypeSelect

class SomeModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    def formfield_for_dbfield(self, db_field, **kwargs):
        if db_field.name == 'content_type':
            kwargs['widget'] = GenericContentTypeSelect
        return super(SomeModelAdmin, self).formfield_for_dbfield(db_field, **kwargs)

If you decide on using formfield_overrides you should be aware of its limitations with relation fields.

This feature (and many more) was brought to you by Jacob Magnusson. Thank you Jacob!
