Add all models to Django admin automatically
To show, edit, and work with a model inside the Django admin site,
you usually have to add each desired model manually by adding a line to
For example, to add your
Project class to your Admin site,
you have to add the following to your
from django.contrib import admin from myproject.myapp.models import Project admin.site.register(Project)
Over time, especially during development when you create new objects a lot, this can become quite tedious. So I cam up with a quick hack to add all models to your Django admin site automatically.
Instead of registering all classes manually,
we simply use inspection to add all classes of our models module.
This is what you need to add to the
admin.py file inside your app:
import inspect from django.contrib import admin from myproject.myapp import models for name, obj in inspect.getmembers(models): if inspect.isclass(obj): admin.site.register(obj)
This code uses inspection to automatically add all classes inside your models. Note that you cannot have any other classes inside models withough extending the above code. I would recommend to use this during development only and add all classes manually in production.
