Nexus

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

Install it with pip (or easy_install):

pip install nexus

Config

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.

Modules

Nexus by default includes a module that will automatically pick up django.contrib.admin.
