django-admin-ordering -- Orderable change lists and inlines done right^Wsimple

Orderable change lists
from admin_ordering.admin import OrderableAdmin @admin.register(MyModel) class MyModelAdmin(OrderableAdmin, admin.ModelAdmin): # The field used for ordering. Prepend a minus for reverse # ordering: "-order" ordering_field = "order" # You may optionally hide the ordering field in the changelist: # ordering_field_hide_input = False # The ordering field must be included both in list_display and # list_editable: list_display = ["name", "order"] list_editable = ["order"]
from admin_ordering.admin import OrderableAdmin class MyModelTabularInline(OrderableAdmin, admin.TabularInline): model = MyModel # Same as above; "-order" is also allowed here: ordering_field = "order" # ordering_field_hide_input = False

- Note that django-admin-ordering assigns ordering values in increments of 10, emphasizing that the ordering value should not have any significance apart from giving relative ordering to elements.
