Nexus is a pluggable admin application in Django. It's designed to give you a simple design and architecture for building admin applications.
(This project is still under active development)
Install it with pip (or easy_install):
pip install nexus
You'll need to enable it much like you would django.contrib.admin.
First, add it to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'nexus', )
Now you'll want to include it within your urls.py:
import nexus # sets up the default nexus site by detecting all nexus_modules.py files nexus.autodiscover() # urls.py urlpatterns = patterns('', ('^nexus/', include(nexus.site.urls)), )
By default Nexus requires django.contrib.auth and django.contrib.sessions. If you are using a custom auth system you can skip these requirements by using the setting NEXUS_SKIP_INSTALLED_APPS_REQUIREMENTS = True in your django settings.
Nexus by default includes a module that will automatically pick up django.contrib.admin.
