+.. deprecated:: 1.4
+ This module has been deprecated.
Databrowse is a Django application that lets you browse your data.
As the Django admin dynamically creates an admin interface by introspecting
your models, Databrowse dynamically creates a rich, browsable Web site by
introspecting your models.
-.. admonition:: Note
- Databrowse is **very** new and is currently under active development. It
- may change substantially before the next Django release.
- With that said, it's easy to use, and it doesn't require writing any
- code. So you can play around with it today, with very little investment in
- time or coding.
How to use Databrowse
@@ -640,3 +640,19 @@ Until Django 1.3 the functions :func:`~django.conf.urls.include`,
were located in a ``django.conf.urls.defaults`` module.
Starting with Django 1.4 they are now available in :mod:`django.conf.urls`.
+Databrowse has not seen active development for some time, and this does not
+show any sign of changing. There had been a suggestion for a GSOC project to
+integrate the functionality of databrowse into the admin, but no progress was
+made. While Databrowse has been deprecated, an enhancement of
+django.contrib.admin providing a similar feature set is still possible.
+.. _GSOC Proposal:
+The code that powers Databrowse is licensed under the same terms as Django
+itself, and so is available to be adopted by an individual or group as
+a third-party project.
