Welcome to django-controlcenter!

Get all your project models on one single page with charts and whistles.

django-controlcenter

Rationale

Django-admin is a great tool to control your project activity: new orders, comments, replies, users, feedback -- everything is here. The only struggle is to switch between all those pages constantly just to check them out for new entries.

With django-controlcenter you can have all of your models on one single page and build beautiful charts with Chartist.js. Actually they don't even have to be a django models, get your data from wherever you want: RDBMS, NOSQL, text file or even from an external web-page, it doesn't matter.

Quickstart

Install django-controlcenter:

pip install -U django-controlcenter

Create a dashboard file with unlimited number of widgets and dashboards:

from controlcenter import Dashboard, widgets
from project.app.models import Model

class ModelItemList(widgets.ItemList):
    model = Model
    list_display = ('pk', 'field')

class MyDashboard(Dashboard):
    widgets = (
        ModelItemList,
    )

Update settings file:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'controlcenter',
    ...
]

CONTROLCENTER_DASHBOARDS = (
    ('mydash', 'project.dashboards.MyDashboard'),
)

Plug in urls:

from django.urls import path
from django.contrib import admin
from controlcenter.views import controlcenter

urlpatterns = [
    path('admin/', admin.site.urls),
    path('admin/dashboard/', controlcenter.urls),
    ...
]

Open /admin/dashboard/mydash/ in browser.
