django-siteprefs allows Django applications settings to come alive
Let's suppose you have your pretty settings.py file with you application:
from django.conf import settings MY_OPTION_1 = getattr(settings, 'MY_APP_MY_OPTION_1', True) MY_OPTION_2 = getattr(settings, 'MY_APP_MY_OPTION_2', 'Some value') MY_OPTION_42 = getattr(settings, 'MY_APP_MY_OPTION_42', 42)
Now you want these options to be exposed to Django Admin interface. Just add the following:
# To be sure our app is still functional without django-siteprefs. if 'siteprefs' in settings.INSTALLED_APPS: from siteprefs.toolbox import patch_locals, register_prefs patch_locals() # This bootstrap is required before `register_prefs` step. # And that's how we expose our options to Admin. register_prefs(MY_OPTION_1, MY_OPTION_2, MY_OPTION_42)
After that you can view your settings in Django Admin.
If you want those settings to be editable through the Admin - siteprefs allows that too, and even more.
