Quick Edit NG Documentation

pip install django-quickedit-ng==0.2.0

Django Quick Edit NG is a way to quickly edit fields in a model directly from the admin change_list view. It adds to the functionality of list_editable and allows for data entry in a drop down form in addition to inline. This concept was borrowed from Wordpress and adapted into the Django admin interface. Here is an example screenshot to show functionality

About the fork

Quick Edit was originally a project from Corey and Justin. According to the GitHub repo the project hasn't been updated for 8 years. After receiving no replies on the issue asking whether the initial authors are interested to update the project, Giorgos made the necessary changes to make this work with recent versions of Django and published this package as django-quickedit-ng.

Installation and configuration

Include quickedit in the list of your installed apps. For each ModelAdmin you want to get quick edit, inherit QuickEditAdmin, set change_list_template quickedit's template and add the set of fields you want to edit in a drop down in quick_editable variable.


from django.contrib import admin
from quickedit.admin import QuickEditAdmin

class ArticleAdmin(QuickEditAdmin, admin.ModelAdmin):
    list_display = ('id', 'name', 'published')
    list_editable = ('published',)
    quick_editable = ('name',)
    change_list_template = 'quickedit/change_list.html', ArticleAdmin)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
