Please suggest packages you would like to be supported. Also vote for packages that are already suggested, so we know which are most wanted. Thank you.

I deleted comments with apps that have been already implemented. Here is the list of currently supported apps:

  • django-cms
  • django-filer
  • django-mptt
  • django-reversion
  • django-import-export

Documentation and examples:

As mentioned in #2 I would like Django-cms to be supported. A close second would be Zinnia.


Yeah, Zinnia support would be fantastic


django-mptt-tree-editor would be included with Django CMS support, right?

Also django-polymorphic.


I would love integration with django-admin tools, mainly for the feature that allows you to change the apps name in the admin. 

scdoshi commented Mar 6, 2013

Out of the box support for geodjango fields in the admin would be pretty awesome.

sveetch commented Mar 10, 2013

Django+cms and Zinnia support will be wonderful



zyukin commented Mar 14, 2013

django-redactor, django-reversion


As you've added support for django-cms and django-filer already, it would be cool to see django-form-designer ( getting supported too, as this is a much used plugin with django-cms. 😃

What about the former contrib app django-databrowse? It was removed from 1.5 but still seems to be under active development (more or less at least):

For example a link to a model instance could lead to a corresponding databrowse url by default. There the user just can look a the data. When he wishes to edit it, he clicks the edit button on that page. I think accomplishing that is not that intrusive. I'll look into it myself, when I have the time ;-)


Will django-floppyforms ( work easily inside DS?

@poptosic: Mezzanine

Unfortunately Grappelli is one of required dependencies for Mezzanine, which makes it kind awkward and hard to support them and it would "theme for theme" situation. I am not familiar with mezzanine so i am not sure how deep grappelli is integrated into mezzanine, but i think the only way we could add support for mezzanine is if it runs in standalone mode without grappelli too.

Integration with django-suit #3


Add support for django-guardian please. Thanks


+1 for django-polymorphic


Supporting for the tabbed navigation would be really great... thats actually the only thing why I'm not using django-suit right now :(

Modeltranslation in admin interface will be really great.

will be great if you guys could take a look at django-admin-tools. however seems I have to move forward first, since I need to use both django-suit and django-admin-tools within one project soon.

@danielchang1991 i don't think it is possible to use django-suit and django-admin-tools together, because they both are doing same thing - extending lot of django admin original templates and there will be a lot of conflicts. I believe they will work, but templates/css/layout will be a mess. In comparison it would be same like using wordpress with two themes simultaneously which is impossible.

ghost commented Sep 6, 2013

@darklow Sorry I didn't make it clear. For my demand, it is about to integrate the fancy UI from django-suit and the all-in-one dashboard from django-admin-tool. Ya you're right, it will be a mess to join the templates without merge. :)

darklow commented Sep 6, 2013

@danielchang1991 Dashboard customisation is one of top priority features, that i will start as soon as summer ends. But right now you can take a look on this issue #49


django mptt tree editor:
It works with no changes but a little bit of styling would allow it to look much better inside Suit.

An alternative would be to add native support drag & drop reordering of MPTT models to Suit.

darklow commented Oct 7, 2013

@gamesbook i suggest you try out
It works with Django Suit without any customizations. I will add some examples to demo later.


I have looked at django-select2. Unfortunately, the poor documentation makes it close to unusable. django-selectable has a section in its docs on using it with grappelli ( that can maybe help with integration with suit?

Just purchased a license 👍 keep up the great work.

@SalahAdDin @guetux @DylanLukes How can possibly Django Suit support wagtail if it has its own unique layout and templates?


@darklow +1 for your point on wagtail. I've been following the emails for this issue. How on earth would wagtail be supported @SalahAdDin @guetux @DylanLukes ?


I've been watching, Wagtail will implement personal customization modules to allow the Admin also it is common admin improve wagtail with django-admin, admin not own Wagtail.
Wagtail have used? Wagtail has an own dmin and one very simple to django-admin, was thinking of doing more complex the admin, at least similar to what used django cms and is implemented in the demo django-suit.
If I make me understand?
If you want i can put some images about it :D


And other +1 django-smart-selects :D

  • Mezzanine
  • Grappelli itself

It's not impossible, just difficult - IMHO the Mezzanine fork of Grappelli might be a little easier to do.

The issue is, Django-Filebrowser is a necessary functionality for many people/projects, including Mezzanine, and it depends on (and is written by the author of) Grappelli - even though Grappelli itself is largely unneccessary.

There are forks of Filebrowser out there with no Grappelli, but they mostly are unsupported after a while, and none have gained enough traction to stay current - so most people are stuck with either the Grappelli/Filebrowser combination, or the Mezzanine fork of both.

As I recall, the author of Grappelli has stated his intention not to do a mobile / responsive version, nor migrate to newer tech like Bootstrap3.
