A Bootstrap theme for Django Admin

Latest Version: 2.5.6

[![PyPI version](](

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 `>=1.4.x`.

## Installation

1. Download it from PyPi with `pip install django-admin-bootstrapped`
2. Add `'django_admin_bootstrapped'` into the `INSTALLED_APPS` list __before__ `'django.contrib.admin'`
3. Have fun!

### Switch to Bootstrap3

Do the previous steps, then add `'django_admin_bootstrapped.bootstrap3'` into the `INSTALLED_APPS` list __before__ `'django_admin_bootstrapped'`.

## Goodies

### Translate/change an application name with a template

With the default admin you can't change the application name, but django-admin-bootstrapped let you do it in a really easy way. Just create a file named `admin_app_name.html` into the application's template folder. Eg: `myapp/templates/admin_app_name.html` or `project/templates/myapp/admin_app_name.html`.
You can also change the default Django Administration title, just add a `admin_title.html` file into your `project/templates/admin/` folder.

### 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 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. The result will look like this:

### XHTML Compatible

Compatible with both html and xhtml.
To enable xhtml for your django app add the following to your
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 == '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](
