Dashboard Installation¶


Dashboard is located into a separate application. So after a typical JET installation it won’t be active. To enable dashboard application follow these steps:

  • Add ‘jet.dashboard’ application to the INSTALLED_APPS setting of your Django project settings.py file (note it should be before ‘jet’):
  • Add URL-pattern to the urlpatterns of your Django project urls.py file (they are needed for related–lookups and autocompletes):
urlpatterns = patterns(
    url(r'^jet/', include('jet.urls', 'jet')),  # Django JET URLS
    url(r'^jet/dashboard/', include('jet.dashboard.urls', 'jet-dashboard')),  # Django JET dashboard URLS
    url(r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),
  • For Google Analytics widgets only install python package:
pip install google-api-python-client==1.4.1
  • Create database tables:
python manage.py migrate dashboard
# or
python manage.py syncdb
  • Collect static if you are in production environment:
python manage.py collectstatic
