django_qbe 0.2.0

Django admin tool for custom reports
django-qbe's goal is to provide a assited and interactive way of making complex queries with no technical knowledge (or minimal) to get custom reports from the objects of Django models.

Based on QBE proposal from IBM®, django-qbe is intended to remove the limitations of Django QuerySets objects and to use the whole expresive power of the subjacent SQL.

Installation

There's no setup.py script, neither easy_install yet, but I hope yes in the near future. By the moment, you must download the django_qbe directory using git:

git clone git://github.com/versae/qbe.git
cp -r qbe/django_qbe /path/to/your/project


Adding to the project settings:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
 # [...] django builtins applications
 'django_qbe',
 # [...] Any other application
)


And adding the urlconf in your project urls.py:

# qbe
url(r'^qbe/', include('django_qbe.urls')),


You must not forgive link or copy the django_qbe/media/django_qbe directory in your project media directory:

 ln -s django_qbe/media/django_qbe /path/to/your/project/media/

That's all. Then you can access to http://host:port/qbe However, you can add a link from your admin page changing the admin index template fo your AdminSite:

class AdminSite(admin.AdminSite):
 index_template = "qbe_index.html"


Or adding in your custom admin index template the next javascript:

< script type="text/javascript" src="{% url qbe_js %}" >< /script >
