Ralph Admin

Ralph Admin class (ralph.admin.mixins.RalphAdmin) is built on top of regular Django Admin and has bunch of extending features. Some of them are listed below.

Import-Export

Ralph Admin has built-in support for importing and exporting objects (using django-import-export). Possible configuration:

Resource class

Define resouce_class in your Admin to specify django-import-export's resource class used to handle importing and exporting of this model.

Example:

class SupportAdmin(RalphAdmin):
    ...
    resource_class = resources.SupportResource
    ...

Export queryset

Define _export_queryset_manager attribute in your Admin to specify which manager will be used to handle export queries. This should be string with model's attribute name for proper manager.

Example:

class SupportAdmin(RalphAdmin):
    ...
    _export_queryset_manager = 'objects_with_related'
    ...

Export in Admin by default use get_queryset from Django's admin to properly handle all filters etc. During export from Admin, get_queryset defined in your Resource is not used, but it is a good practice, to point them to the same objects manager.

Ralph Admin, by default, select and prefetch all related objects that are defined in Resource's Meta.
