Hello! This article mentions an open-source library for Django which provides an easy way to build a data tables interface for any model defined in a project. The source code, published on GitHub (MIT license), can be installed via PIP, extended, or used as it is in commercial projects or eLearning activities. Thanks for reading!

The sample project mentioned above was coded during this short video that starts from an empty project.

Django Dynamic Data Tables

โœจ Library Highlights

The library can be used to prototype fast data tables UIs using minimal configuration and no coding. Once a new model is migrated to the database and the library configured to use it, the UI is ready to manage the data without writing any code using a simple data table layout.

Here is the required configuration for a model
DYNAMIC_DATATB = {
    # SLUG -> Import_PATH 
    'cities'  : "app2.models.City",
}

The above snippet enables the Dynamic DataTable module for the City model defined in the app2 Django application.

class City(models.Model):    

  name    = models.CharField(max_length=100)    
  info    = models.CharField(max_length=100, default='')    
  visited = models.CharField(max_length=100, default='false')

Using the model definition, the UI is automatically generated and presented to the users.

Might be important to mention that all future updates on the model (add, remove fields) are reflected in the UI without writing code.
