Django Leaflet Admin List

The Django Leaflet Admin List package provides an admin list view featured by the map and bounding box filter for the geo-based data of the GeoDjango.
The Django Leaflet Admin List package provides an admin list view featured by the map and bounding box filter for the geo-based data of the GeoDjango. It requires a django-leaflet package.

Installation

Stable version from the PyPi package repository

pip install django-leaflet-admin-list

Last development version from the GitHub source version control system

pip install git+git://github.com/nnseva/django-leaflet-admin-list.git

Configuration

Include the leaflet_admin_list application into the INSTALLED_APPS list, like:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    'django.contrib.admin',
    'django.contrib.auth',
    ...
    'leaflet',
    'leaflet_admin_list',
    ...
]

Using

In your admin.py:

...
from leaflet.admin import LeafletGeoAdminMixin
from leaflet_admin_list.admin import LeafletAdminListMixin
...

class WaypointAdmin(LeafletAdminListMixin, LeafletGeoAdminMixin, ModelAdmin):
    ...

Visual View

Open the admin list view and see the map above the list of objects. Every object in the list is represented on the map.

Also, the bounding box filter is added to the list of filters.

Use a bounding box filter to filter objects by the geometry. Just press the 'Current map bounding box' link to filter out objects outside of the current map bounding box. The current filtering box will be represented on the map as a rectangle. The color of the rectangle is shown to the right of the 'Current map bounding box' link. Manual input of the bounding_box parameter in the address box also works.

As usual, pressing the filter or paging link will reload a page with new parameters. The map keeps its position for standard static Django filters and pager using permalink.

Customizing view

The geodata shown on the map is represented as GeoJSON feature collection. Every GeoJSON feature corresponds to one geo field of one Django model instance. All standard Django geometry-based fields are shown on the map by default. Every such feature has the following list of mandatory properties to be used:

  • field identifies the geometry field shown
  • app_label and model_name identify the model of the instance shown
  • pk is an instance primary key which identifies the model instance shown

The following optional GeoJSON feature properties are used to customize the look and feel of the feature on the map:

  • popup if present, is used to create a popup. A value started with '<' is used to create an HTML popup, else the text popup is used, see also bindPopup method
  • tooltip if present, is used to create a tooltip. A value started with '<' is used to create an HTML tooltip, else the text tooltip is used, see also bindTooltip method
  • line_style if present, is used to apply as an options parameter when creating lines and polygons, see also Leaflet Path options
  • point_style if present, is used as an options parameter to create a Leaflet marker, see also Marker options
  • an icon member of the point_style if present, is used as an options parameter to create a Leaflet icon, see also Icon options

The Admin class may override every part of this data, or even the whole data output overriding admin methods producing this data:

  • get_geojson_feature_list(request, queryset) returns the whole GeoJSON FeatureList instance representing a queryset
  • get_geojson_features(request, o, queryset) returns the features member of the FeatureList instance for the model instance o
  • get_geojson_geometry_fields(request, o, queryset) returns a list of geometry field names that need to be included in the feature list
  • get_geojson_feature(request, name, o, queryset) returns a GeoJSON Feature instance representing the instance o geometry field name
  • get_geojson_geometry(request, name, o, queryset) returns a geometry member of the GeoJSON Feature instance representing the instance o geometry field name
  • get_geojson_properties(request, name, o, queryset) returns a properties member of the GeoJSON Feature instance representing the instance o geometry field name
  • get_geojson_feature_popup(request, name, o, queryset) returns a popup property of the GeoJSON Feature instance representing the instance o geometry field name
  • get_geojson_feature_tooltip(request, name, o, queryset) returns a tooltip property of the GeoJSON Feature instance representing the instance o geometry field name
  • get_geojson_feature_verbose_name(request, name, o, queryset) returns a verbose name of the instance o geometry field name which is used to create popup and tooltip
  • get_geojson_feature_line_style(request, name, o, queryset) returns a line_style property of the GeoJSON Feature instance representing the instance o geometry field name
  • get_geojson_feature_point_style(request, name, o, queryset) returns a point_style property of the GeoJSON Feature instance representing the instance o geometry field name
  • get_geojson_feature_icon_style(request, name, o, queryset) returns an icon member of the point_style property of the GeoJSON Feature instance representing the instance o geometry field name
