This is a package developed to help you with
ImageField visualization in your
ModelAdmin. It automatically creates user friendly thumbnail for any
ImageField you choose to put in your
All you have to do is to switch from ModelAdmin to ThumbAdmin subclass. It's super easy to use:
This is how it looks when you hover your cursor over an
Insert admin_thumbnail to the end of your
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'admin_thumbnail', ... )
ModelAdmin must look like this::
from models import ModelExample from admin_thumbnail import thumb_admin from django.contrib import admin class ModelExampleAdmin(thumb_admin.ThumbAdmin): list_display = ('an_image_field',) admin.register(ModelExample, ModelExampleAdmin)
After that you must create your DB table that manages the cached thumbnails:
python manage.py syncdb
If you're using
south you'll need to initialise sorl.thumbnail's migrations:
python manage.py schemamigration sorl.thumbnail --initial python manage.py migrate sorl.thumbnail --database=$DATABASE_NAME
$DATABASE_NAME is not default, and you're using a (DB router)[https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/db/multi-db/#using-routers], you should add a key named
thumbnail to your database mapping dictionary!
Yes! It's THAT simple!
Please, first read the sorl.thumbnail installation to install it's requirements.
Install using pip:
pip install django-admin-thumbnail
Or you can clone the project and install it via:
python setup.py install
django-admin-thumbnail is localizable, but currently, the only officially supported languages are pt_BR, en_US and es. But feel free to localize it the way you want and then, send me the .po file for it to be official.
