django-daterange-filter is a Django app to add the option to filter by a custom date range on the admin. This allows to inputs to be used to get the custom date range filters.
See datefilter.png of a screenshot of how this is seen on the admin.
IMPORTANT: this will work with Django 1.4. I won't work with previous Django versions.
pip install django-daterange-filter
In your models.py
from daterange_filter.fields import DateRangeField
bar = DateRangeField(null=True, blank=True, etc...) bar.daterange_filter = True
It is important to use DateRangeField and not to use django.db.models.DateField, becuase the Django class doesn't acept any other format than %m/%d/%yy. Because of this, it won't work if you are using a custom date format on the settings.py. On the other hand, DateRangeField will allow the custom DATE_INPUT_FORMATS defined on the settings.py.
In you admin.py file import the filter. This is the only line that should be used for doing that:
from daterange_filter import filter
