Quick start guide

Django (version 1.8+) needs to be installed to use django-nested-admin.


pip install django-nested-admin

Go to GitHub if you need to download or install from source.


Open settings.py and add nested_admin to your INSTALLED_APPS

    # ...

Add URL-patterns:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    # ...
    url(r'^_nested_admin/', include('nested_admin.urls')),

Collect the static files:

$ python manage.py collectstatic

Example Usage

In order to use django-nested-admin, use the following classes in place of their django admin equivalents:

django.contrib.admin nested_admin
ModelAdmin NestedModelAdmin
InlineModelAdmin NestedInlineModelAdmin
StackedInline NestedStackedInline
TabularInline NestedTabularInline

There is also nested_admin.NestedGenericStackedInline and nested_admin.NestedGenericTabularInline which are the nesting-capable versions of GenericStackedInline and GenericTabularInline in django.contrib.contenttypes.admin.

# An example admin.py for a Table of Contents app

from django.contrib import admin
import nested_admin

from .models import TableOfContents, TocArticle, TocSection

class TocArticleInline(nested_admin.NestedStackedInline):
    model = TocArticle
    sortable_field_name = "position"

class TocSectionInline(nested_admin.NestedStackedInline):
    model = TocSection
    sortable_field_name = "position"
    inlines = [TocArticleInline]

class TableOfContentsAdmin(nested_admin.NestedModelAdmin):
    inlines = [TocSectionInline]

admin.site.register(TableOfContents, TableOfContentsAdmin)
