django-xadmin-extras 0.11

Extensions for django-xadmin

Latest Version: 0.15

Extra features for django-xadmin

New features:

Form wizard

Integrate Django FormWizards with xadmin views:

Any view using a wizard should inherit from FormWizardAdminView

from xadmin_extras.wizard import FormWizardAdminView, SessionWizardViewMixin

class NotificateView(SessionWizardViewMixin, FormWizardAdminView):
    """A wizard view working together with xadmin, using
    SessionWizard backend

    form_list = [SelectFilterForm, NotificateForm]
    form_template = 'admin/fbapps/notificate_form.html'
    title = 'FB Push notifications'

Other wizard backends are available: SessionWizardViewMixin and CookieWizardViewMixin

For more info about Form wizard, see django documentation

To register a view to be available at admin, with name and protected, use register_view():

import xadmin
    r'fbapps/notificate/$', NotificateView,

Custom menu entries

Using an AppConfig-like class (available for Django 1.7), custom entries can be added for the menu of each App.

Create a file called at your app folder, create a class and edit init_menu()

# coding=utf-8

# from django.apps import AppConfig (commented for django 1.6)
from xadmin_extras.apps import AdminAppMixin

class FooConfig(AdminAppMixin):
    """name and verbose_name are going to be used for django AppConfig too

    name = 'foo'
    verbose_name = 'Foo app.'
    icon = 'foo'

    def init_menu(self):
        """Add custom menu entries to the menu displayed for this app

        Return a list of dicts, each dict will be a entry for the submenu of
        the app:
            {'url': '/admin/.../', 'icon': 'bolt', 'title': 'Custom'}
        also 'perm' and 'order' keys can be added.

        return [{
            'url': '/admin/foo/notification/', 'icon': 'bolt',
            'title': u'Send notifications', 'order': '', 'perm': None}]

APP_CONFIG = FooConfig()

Now, assign the app to each model you want to get grouped and register them

import xadmin
import .models as models

class AppAdmin(object):
    app_config = AppConfig, AppAdmin)

After that, you just need to extend CommAdminView (maybe you have already done this if you wanted to change menu style, site title, base template, etc.), with AppConfigViewMixin available at xadmin_extras.views

import xadmin.views as views
import xadmin_extras as views_extra, views_extra.AppConfigViewMixin)

django-hstore support

Add the widget XadminHStoreWidget to your form definition:

from django_hstore.forms import DictionaryField
from xadmin_extras.django_hstore.widgets import XAdminHStoreWidget
from django import forms

class HStoreForm(forms.Form):
        data = DictionaryField(widget=XadminHStoreWidget())

External apps support

Apps with custom views are defined at ext folder


import xadmin_extras.ext.celery as ext_celery
        ext_celery.celery_models.PeriodicTask, ext_celery.PeriodicTaskAdmin)


import xadmin_extras.ext.settings as ext_settings, ext_settings.SettingsAdmin)


(By default, the mails will be at URL: /admin/mails/)

from xadmin.views import CommAdminView, filter_hook, FormAdminView

import xadmin_extras.ext.mailfactory as ext_mailfactory
        r'^mails/$', ext_mailfactory.MailListView, name='mail_factory_list')
        r'^mails/(?P<mail_name>.*)/$',ext_mailfactory.MailFormView, name='mail_factory_form')
        ext_mailfactory.MailPreviewMessageView, name='mail_factory_preview_message')
