django-jet 1.0.6

Modern template for Django admin interface with improved functionality

Modern template for Django admin interface with improved functionality

Django JET has two kinds of licenses: open-source (AGPLv3) and commercial. Please note that using AGPLv3 code in your programs make them AGPL compatible too. So if you don’t want to comply with that we can provide you a commercial license (visit Home page). The commercial license is designed for using Django JET in commercial products and applications without the provisions of the AGPLv3.

Why Django JET?

  • New fresh look
  • Responsive mobile interface
  • Useful admin home page
  • Minimal template overriding
  • Easy integration
  • Themes support
  • Autocompletion
  • Handy controls

Installation

  • Download and install latest version of Django JET:
pip install django-jet
# or
easy_install django-jet
  • 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',
                ...
            ],
        },
    },
]

Warning

Before Django 1.8 you should specify context processors different way. Also use django.core.context_processors.request instead of django.template.context_processors.request.

from django.conf import global_settings

TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = global_settings.TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS + (
    'django.core.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(
    '',
    url(r'^jet/', include('jet.urls', 'jet')),  # Django JET URLS
    url(r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),
    ...
)
  • Create database tables:
python manage.py migrate jet
# or
python manage.py syncdb
  • Collect static if you are in production environment:
python manage.py collectstatic
  • Clear your browser cache

Dashboard installation

Note

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(
    '',
    url(r'^jet/', include('jet.urls', 'jet')),  # Django JET URLS
    url(r'^jet/dashboard/', include('jet.dashboard.urls', 'jet-dashboard')),  # Django JET dashboard URLS
    url(r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),
    ...
)
  • For Google Analytics widgets only install python package:
pip install google-api-python-client==1.4.1
  • Create database tables:
python manage.py migrate dashboard
# or
python manage.py syncdb
  • Collect static if you are in production environment:
python manage.py collectstatic
