Optional themes

This package ships with optional themes as fixtures, they can be installed using the loaddata admin command. Optional themes are activated on installation.

Django theme (default):

Run python manage.py loaddata admin_interface_theme_django.json

Bootstrap theme:

Run python manage.py loaddata admin_interface_theme_bootstrap.json

Foundation theme:

Run python manage.py loaddata admin_interface_theme_foundation.json

U.S. Web Design Standards theme:

Run python manage.py loaddata admin_interface_theme_uswds.json

Add more themes

You can add a theme you've created through the admin to this repository by sending us a PR. Here are the steps to follow to add :

  1. Export your exact theme as fixture using the dumpdata admin command: python manage.py dumpdata admin_interface.Theme --indent 4 -o admin_interface_theme_{{name}}.json --pks=N

  2. Copy the generated json file into the fixtures folder (making sure its name starts with admin_interface_theme_ to avoid clashes with fixtures that might be provided by other third party apps).

  3. Remove the "pk" from the fixture and make sure the active field is set to true (in this way a theme is automatically activated when installed).

  4. Edit the section above to document your theme.

  • I already have a custom base_site.html, how can I make it work?

You can use django-apptemplates, then add {% extends "admin_interface:admin/base_site.html" %} to your base_site.html
