Allow the creation of drafts in the admin. It is compatible with both the default django admin and django-grappelli.
pip install git+git://github.com/platypus-creation/django-draft.git
git clone git://github.com/platypus-creation/django-draft.git cd django-draft python setup.py install
draft to your INSTALLED_APPS
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'draft', )
Create the database table
python manage.py syncdb
or if you are using South (you should)
python manage.py migrate draft
You are done.
Django-draft detects if grappelli is installed and will display accordingly.
Add draft support in the admin to your model by registering them with a DraftAdmin Class which inherits the ModelAdmin Class
from myapp.models import MyModel from draft.admin import DraftAdmin class MyModelAdmin(DraftAdmin): """ Declare everything as usual here """ pass admin.site.register(MyModel, MyModelAdmin)
You should now have a save as draft button available in the admin for this model !
As soon as you have a draft, you'll be able to reload it later, or discard it
