Welcome to django-fluent-dashboard’s documentation!

The fluent_dashboard module offers a custom admin dashboard, built on top of django-admin-tools (code).

The django-admin-tools package provides a default mechanism to replace the standard Django admin homepage with a widget based dashboard. The fluent_dashboard module extends this, by providing additional widgets (called “modules”) such as:

  • a “icon list” module for the admin homepage.
  • a “welcome” module for the admin homepage.
  • a configurable module layout for the admin homepage, through settings.py.
  • a “return to site” link.

Icon credits

The dashboard uses flat icons, which are available from http://www.flaticon.com/ and require attribution.

  • Icons designed by Freepik from www.flaticon.com
  • Icons designed by SimpleIcon from www.flaticon.com

Other icon sets

Previously, the dashboard uses the “Oxygen” icon theme, which is freely available from KDE. You may use the icons under the LGPL 3 license. To use a different icon theme (e.g. Tango), see the FLUENT_DASHBOARD_ICON_THEME setting in the Configuration section.

For more information about the Oxygen icon theme, see:

The Oxygen icon theme can be downloaded from: http://download.kde.org/stable/4.10.0/src/oxygen-icons-4.10.0.tar.xz.
