✨ How to use it

As mentioned before, the library can be used in a new Django project or for legacy projects that need a small UI boost in order to look better. In the following section, I will mention the installation steps as listed on the official PyPi Page.

πŸ‘‰ Step #1 - Install the library
$ pip install django-admin-adminlte
πŸ‘‰ Step #2 - Update the INSTALLED_APPS section of the project
        'admin_adminlte.apps.AdminAdminlteConfig',  # <-- NEW

Make sure the AdminLTE line is above django.contrib.admin in order to overwrite the Django defaults.

πŸ‘‰ Step #3 - Update project routing to include the theme URLs
    from django.urls import path, include

    urlpatterns = [
        path('', include('admin_adminlte.urls')),  # <-- NEW
πŸ‘‰ Step #4 - Migrate & start the project
$ # Set up the database
$ python makemigrations
$ python migrate
$ # Create the superuser
$ python createsuperuser
$ # Start the application (development mode)
$ python runserver # default port 8000

At this point, the AdminLTE styling should cover all sections: authentication, the admin section reserved for superusers, and pages for common users.
