To install django-admin-tools, run the following command inside this directory:

If you have the Python easy_install utility available, you can also type the following to download and install in one step:

    easy_install django-admin-tools

Or if you're using pip:

    pip install django-admin-tools

Or if you'd prefer you can simply place the included "admin_tools" directory somewhere on your python path, or symlink to it from somewhere on your Python path; this is useful if you're working from a Mercurial checkout.

An installation guide is available in the documentation.


An extensive documentation is available, it was made with the excellent Sphinx program.


I have setup a transifex project for django-admin-tools, feel free to e-mail me if you want me to add a new language.
