How to use it

Install the package via PIP

$ pip install django-admin-volt
// OR
$ pip install git+

Add admin_volt application to the INSTALLED_APPS setting of your Django project file (note it should be before django.contrib.admin):


All programs you add in INSTALLED_APPS should look like this: APP_NAME.apps.APP_NAMEConfig.

In this feature, we considered that each App can have its own icon, so we ask users to use this feature according to the method. Also in of each program according to the example add the icon field in the corresponding class. You can go here to use more icons

    from django.apps import AppConfig

    class APP_NAMEConfig(AppConfig):
        name = 'APP_NAME'
        icon = 'ICON_CLASS'  # for example: icon = 'fa fa-users'

Make sure django.template.context_processors.request context processor is enabled in (Django 1.8+ way):

            'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
            'DIRS': [],
            'APP_DIRS': True,
            'OPTIONS': {
                'context_processors': [

⚠️ Warning!!

  • Before Django 1.8 you should specify context processors different way. Also use django.core.context_processors.request instead of django.template.context_processors.request.
    from django.conf import global_settings
