class BaseEntityAdmin(ModelAdmin):
def render_change_form(self, request, context, add=False, change=False, form_url='', obj=None):
Wrapper for ModelAdmin.render_change_form. Replaces standard static
AdminForm with an EAV-friendly one. The point is that our form generates
fields dynamically and fieldsets must be inferred from a prepared and
validated form instance, not just the form class. Django does not seem
to provide hooks for this purpose, so we simply wrap the view and
substitute some data.
form = context['adminform'].form
# infer correct data from the form
fieldsets = self.fieldsets or [(None, {'fields': form.fields.keys()})]
adminform = admin.helpers.AdminForm(form, fieldsets,

class BaseEntityInlineFormSet(BaseInlineFormSet):
An inline formset that correctly initializes EAV forms.
def add_fields(self, form, index):
if self.instance:
setattr(form.instance,, self.instance)
super(BaseEntityInlineFormSet, self).add_fields(form, index)
class BaseEntityInline(InlineModelAdmin):
Inline model admin that works correctly with EAV attributes. You should mix
in the standard StackedInline or TabularInline classes in order to define
formset representation, e.g.::
class ItemInline(BaseEntityInline, StackedInline):
model = Item
form = forms.ItemForm
.. warning: TabularInline does *not* work out of the box. There is,
however, a patched template `admin/edit_inline/tabular.html` bundled
with EAV-Django. You can copy or symlink the `admin` directory to your
templates search path (see Django documentation).
