Django Admin Customization

Darren Jones

The Django framework comes with a powerful administrative tool called admin. You can use it out of the box to quickly add, delete, or edit any database model from a web interface. But with a little extra code, you can customize the Django admin to take your admin capabilities to the next level.

In this course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Add attribute columns in the model object list
  • Link between model objects
  • Add filters to the model object list
  • Make model object lists searchable
  • Modify the object edit forms
  • Override Django admin templates

Thank you, Darren. This was a great course: clear explanations and enough information for me to be dangerous in the admin site!
