Render Model in Django Admin Interface
  • Last Updated : 13 Feb, 2020

Rendering model in admin refers to adding the model to the admin interface so that data can be manipulated easily using admin interface. Django’s ORM provides a predefined admin interface that can be used to manipulate data by performing operations such as INSERT, SEARCH, SELECT, CREATE, etc. as in a normal database. To start entering data in your model and using admin interface, one needs to specify or render model in admin.py.

Render Model in Django Admin Interface Explanation

Consider a project named geeksforgeeks having an app named geeks. Let us intialise a model having fields title, content, views, URL, image, etc as in a blog. To know more about various fields and their implementations visit Django model data types and fields list.

Refer to the following articles to check how to create a project and an app in Django.

Enter the following code into models.py file of geeks app.




from django.db import models
from django.db.models import Model
# Create your models here.
  
class GeeksModel(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField(max_length = 200)
    content = models.TextField(max_length = 200, null = True, blank = True)
    views = models.IntegerField()
    url = models.URLField(max_length = 200)
    image = models.ImageField()


One can easily create instances of this model using django shell but to access the admin panel and use admin panel for inserting, deleting or modifying the data following steps are to be followed:



  • Before starting to use admin interface of django one needs to create superuser in django. A superuser is like an admin who can access and modify everything of a particular Django project. To create a superuser enter the following command into the terminal.
    Python manage.py createsuperuser

    Enter your Name, Email, Password and confirm password.

    # Register your models here.
    from .models import GeeksModel
      
    admin.site.register(GeeksModel)
