Django - Tutorial 053. Adding Counters to Models in the Django Admin Panel

Content

The other day, I started working on a content moderation application on the site and solved the problem of adding counters in the administrative panel.

It looks like this now

The task itself is trivial, but as it turned out there is a nuance, without knowing which, this task will not work right away.

Introduction

In order to set custom text for models in the administrative panel, we usually redefine the variable verbose_name_plural in the meta object of the model. The most common option is to add multilingual support. For example,

from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

class Article(models.Model):

    class Meta:
        verbose_name = _('Article')
        verbose_name_plural = _('Articles')

It always works and we don’t think about why it works. And this works because ugettext_lazy is a lazy function that returns the result exactly when it is needed.

In the same way, you can return the number of objects or a specific number of objects and add them to this text in administrative ponel using lazy functions.

Example

In this way, for the moderation proxy model, I have drawn the number of unmoderated objects.

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

from django.utils.functional import lazy
from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

from knowledge.models import Article
from moderation.managers import ArticleModeratedQuerySet


class ModeratedArticle(Article):

    class Meta:
        proxy = True
        verbose_name = _('Article')
        verbose_name_plural = lazy(lambda: _('Articles ({})').format(ModeratedArticle.objects.to_moderation().count()), str)()

    objects = ArticleModeratedQuerySet.as_manager()

Example description

Let's analyze the whole class. This is a special proxy model that

  • Allows you to display a model of articles in the moderation application
  • Which has a special object manager that will only return unmoderated objects

In fact, you are not interested in the object manager; it can release any logic that you plan to add to your application.
It is also not necessary that the model is a proxy model. All this you can do at your discretion.

But the most interesting line for you will be next

verbose_name_plural = lazy(lambda: _('Articles ({})').format(ModeratedArticle.objects.to_moderation().count()), str)()
  • Firstly, a lazy object is used here,
  • to which the function is transferred, it can be either a regular function or a lambda function. In my case, lambda.
  • a rotatable final data type is also passed str as the second argument lazy
  • and the function itself is executed to get the final instance, this is done using the parentheses operator at the end of the line ()

As a result, it will be possible to add a counter of objects of interest to the administrative panel.
