Is a string which defines additional version of jquery - it will include from google storage Example: ADMIN_JQUERY_ADDITIONAL_VERSION = '1.9.0'

Also it provides register_url decorator for ModelAdmin or Inline methods. It turns method to view, which returns HttpResponse object. To use it you should add next line to yours urls.py

url(r'^admin/', include('ruadmin.urls')),

IMPORTANT: it should be placed BEFORE including admin.site.urls, but AFTER admin.autodiscover()

After then you may deco yours methods like that: class SomeModelAdmin(ModelAdmin):

# finally url will be look like that: r'^/admin/app_label/model_name/extra_url/' # arg must be a raw string and can not starts with / # url arg could be omitted - "method_name/$" will be used as url @register_url(r'extra_url/$') def get_info(self, request):

return render_to_response('some_template.html')

IMPORTANT: also you must decorate your method with Graeme Smecher or @classmethod if you use this feture in InlineModelAdmin NOTE: if you use this feature in InlineModelAdmin, "model_name" still be name of model registred with ModelAdmin which contains inline (so as "app_label"). To prevent it set "use_inline_data" arg to True in register_url decorator

  • searchline.js (a tool to filter checkboxes)

Usage: $("fieldset .field-fieldname").addSearchLine();
