Django JET

Modern template for Django admin interface with improved functionality

This repo is maintained by myself. The people from GeexArts did a great job with this theme but the unfortunately made the decision to create another one based on a cloud solution.

I love this theme and this is the reason I want to keep this alive. :)

Django JET has two kinds of licenses: open-source (AGPLv3) and commercial. Please note that using AGPLv3 code in your programs make them AGPL compatible too. So if you don't want to comply with that we can provide you a commercial license (visit Home page). The commercial license is designed for using Django JET in commercial products and applications without the provisions of the AGPLv3.
