Refs #1904.

Very much a work-in-progress right now, but may as well make it visible as we go.



Going with a simple template-only based approach at the moment, that should render fine with existing APIs.

Considering also having a more fully featured third-party admin pacakge that does more opinionated things such as built-in Core API hypermedia support, and proper browser behavior on eg failed validation, which this version will need to handle in a more basic way. (Last part of that actually not as much of an issue as I'd thought)


  • Errors need to correctly respond in modals.
  • Links in list view (prob as a control, rather than hyperlinking a field), also have a clean list fields API.
  • Pagination control currently showing even for a single page.
  • Hyperlinks. (Render as URL in JSON, but as text or other value in admin)
  • [ ] Resolve modal flash. Passing on this for now.

For 3.3.0:

  • Clean up detail vs list pages and templates (extend base)
  • Documentation on overriding.
  • Don't always just include the format in outgoing URLs - only do so on defined links in browsable API.
  • Actions and naming of buttons etc (Inc ensuring internationalized), also clean modal overriding.
  • Messages on edit operations.
  • Strip 'format' for the main HTML representation.
  • Form modals to only include the name part of hyperlinks in select elements.
  • SlugRelatedField should hyperlink.
  • Update heroku example
  • Filters in HTML.
  • Document the HTML form API. (Possibly with eg nesting and/or list support)

Going to pull this in now.
Think it's about time we wrap this up as a 3.2 release, with refinements to follow in 3.3.
