The Admin Interface¶
After a few settings tweaks, you can use the admin interface.
You’ll need neo4django’s Authentication working properly, as well as its
neo4django.contenttypes to your
INSTALLED_APPS. Also include
django.contrib.contenttypes, but make sure they come after the neo4django
In your urls.py, instead of importing
from neo4django import admin admin.autodiscover() urlpatterns = patterns('', ... (r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)), )
And in your app’s admin.py, do the same:
from neo4django import admin from my_app.models import MyModel class MyModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin): ... admin.site.register(MyModel, MyModelAdmin)
Since we don’t use syncdb, you probably won’t have created a neo4django superuser. Run manage.py shell and create a superuser with:
from neo4django.graph_auth.models import User User.objects.create_superuser('matt', 'firstname.lastname@example.org', 'password')
Run manage.py runserver, and visit http://localhost:8000/admin. Voila. Sign in and enjoy.
Usage with Relational Databases¶
The integration hasn’t been tested using both Neo4j and a relational database. The two databases certainly wouldn’t be able to share an admin site, but it might be possible to run them as separate admin sites with their own URLs.
As example routing might look like:
from django.contrib import admin admin.autodiscover() from neo4django import admin as neo_admin neo_admin.autodiscover() urlpatterns = patterns('', (r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)), (r'^neo_admin/', include(neo_admin.site.urls)) )
If you give this a try, please let us know how it goes!
