INSTALL

from pypi (recommended)

$ pip install bootstrap-admin

And don't forget to add bootstrap_admin in INSTALLED_APPS before the django.contrib.admin.

Example:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    # ...
    'bootstrap_admin', # always before django.contrib.admin
    'django.contrib.admin',
    # ...
)

CUSTOMIZE

Sidebar Menu

It is enabled by default. But if you remove django.template.context_processors.request from your context_processors.

Just disable it:

BOOTSTRAP_ADMIN_SIDEBAR_MENU = False

Branding - Overriding logo

If you want to use your own logo, you can achieve this by overriding the login.html and base_site.html, just like in Django Admin.

First, make sure the TEMPLATES setting in your settings.py is properly configured:

TEMPLATES = [
    {
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': [os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'my_django_project/templates')],
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        # other stuff
    },
]

DIRS: You must set the location of your templates, an absolute path.

I'm assuming BASE_DIR is:

BASE_DIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__)))

This pattern of creating a global templates folder could be useful for you to use for your base.html and other global templates.

Let me show you a project structure as an example:

├── my_django_project
│   ├── core
│   │   ├── admin.py
│   │   ├── apps.py
│   │   ├── models.py
│   │   ├── tests.py
│   │   └── views.py
│   ├── settings.py
│   ├── templates
│   │   └── admin
│   │       ├── base_site.html
│   │       └── login.html
│   ├── urls.py
│   └── wsgi.py
├── manage.py

You can see I created a global templates/ folder, with another directory inside admin/ containing login.html and base_site.html.

Their respective contents are:

base_site.html

{% extends 'admin/base_site.html' %}
{% load static %}

{% block branding %}
    <a href="{% url 'admin:index' %}" class="django-admin-logo">
        <!-- Django Administration -->
        <img height="60" src="{% static "bootstrap_admin/img/logo-140x60.png" %}" alt="{{ site_header|default:_('Django administration') }}">
    </a>
{% endblock branding %}

login.html

{% extends 'admin/login.html' %}
{% load i18n static %}

{% block branding %}
    <a href="{% url 'admin:index' %}" class="django-admin-logo">
        <!-- Django Administration -->
        <img height="60" src="{% static "bootstrap_admin/img/logo-140x60.png" %}" alt="{{ site_header|default:_('Django administration') }}">
    </a>
{% endblock branding %}
