I try to use python django for serverside developing. in this blog post, I’ll instroduce how to use the administrator page that django basically provides. django administrator page looks like
phpadmin which means we can see and manage the database information on the page.
this blog is a series. if you want to check other blog posts of the series, see the links below.
- django installation
- Start django Project
- Use Models in django
- django Administrator Page
- django Routing
- django ORM
- django View
- django Form
- Upload django project to Heroku
also, this blog series source code is opened on Github. you can see full source code via the link below.
if you want to change the default language of the administrator page that django basically provides, open
django_exercise/settings.py file and modify it like below.
... # LANGUAGE_CODE = 'en-us' LANGUAGE_CODE = 'fr' ...
in here, I’ll use the default Englisth setting.
we need to create a superuser for using the django administrator page. execute the django command below to create a superuser.
# source venv/bin/activate # pip install -r requirements.txt # cd django_exercise # python manage.py migrate python manage.py createsuperuser
after executing, you can see the superuser registration procedure.
venv > ~/django_exercise/django_exercise > python manage.py createsuperuser Username (leave blank to use '...'): dev-yakuza Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Password: Password (again): Superuser created successfully.
insert the information what you want to create for the superuser.
Connect Administrator Page
use the URL below to go to the django administrator page.
# python manage.py runserver http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin
if you’ve done well, you can see the page like below.
and then, insert the user information created above, and login. you can see the screen like below after sign-in
Register Models To Administrator Page
we need to register our Models to manage it on the django administrator page. open
blog/admin.py file and modify it like below to register our
Post Models. if you want to know how to make django Models, see the previous blog post.(Use Models in django)
from django.contrib import admin from .models import Post admin.site.register(Post)
and then, refresh the administrator page. you can see the Models we created in there like below.
Write Blog Post via Administrator Page
let’s try to write a blog post via the django administrator page. click
Add button on the left of
Posts in the bottom of
BLOG like below
write a test data like below.
and then, cleck
Save and add another to add an additional data for testing. at this time, insert
published_at data, too.
at this time, click
Save button to go to the data list screen.
you can see the data stored well like above.
one more time, we’ll use a database tool for checking the data is really stored well.
we can see the data that we created via django administrator stored well.
we’ve seen how to use django administrator page, and also we’ve seen how to display the models we’ve created before. now, we can manage the data without database tools.
