Quick start guide

For using the FileBrowser, Django needs to be installed and an Admin Site has to be activated.

Requirements

Installation

Install the FileBrowser:

pip install django-filebrowser

Add the filebrowser to your INSTALLED_APPS (before django.contrib.admin):

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    'grappelli',
    'filebrowser',
    'django.contrib.admin',
)

Add the FileBrowser site to your url-patterns (before any admin-urls):

from filebrowser.sites import site

urlpatterns = [
   path('admin/filebrowser/', site.urls),
   path('grappelli/', include('grappelli.urls')),
   path('admin/', admin.site.urls),
]

Collect the static files (please refer to the Staticfiles Documentation for more information):

python manage.py collectstatic

Settings

Check the :ref:`settings`.

Note

You need to add a folder "uploads" within site.storage.location when using the default settings.

Testing

Start the devserver and login to your admin site:

python manage.py runserver <IP-address>:8000

Goto /admin/filebrowser/browse/ and check if everything looks/works as expected. If you're having problems, see :ref:`troubleshooting`.
