Django 1.7 SimpleAdminConfig use import error fix #252

fallenflint commented Feb 21, 2014

From Django 1.7 release notes: django.contrib.admin will now automatically perform autodiscovery of admin modules in installed applications. To prevent it, change your INSTALLED_APPS to contain 'django.contrib.admin.apps.SimpleAdminConfig' instead of 'django.contrib.admin'.

So using default admin app causes autocomplete_light.exceptions.AutocompleteNotRegistered (registry is empty) error.
Temporary workaround is to use SimpleAdminConfig, but it seems like current behaviour must be changed from one described in docs: http://django-autocomplete-light.readthedocs.org/en/latest/install.html#call-autocomplete-light-autodiscover-before-admin-autodiscover

Wouldn't that workaround make is just as if we weren't trying to import it all ?

Could you backport changes from 1.7's django.contrib.admin.autodiscover to autocomplete_light.registry.autodiscover ?

Thanks !

FWIW, I had no issues with autocomplete-light and Django 1.7 (until now at least ;).
