Subject [JIRA] Commented: (CLK-387) Django like Admin Interface.

Adrian A. commented on CLK-387:
-------------------------------

> Such administration interface is normally part of a CMS or a web application and not
the web framewok itself.
> It requires significant amount of resources to implement an administration interface
like Django did.
In Django this functionality is a "module" that can be included or not.
Since Click is supposed to support modules too, I think it would be a good idea to have such
a "module".

> Django like Admin Interface.

> One of the most efficient features of Django (no wonder that google selected it for it's
AppEngine) is the automatic Admin Interface. See a detailed chapter in this onlinebook:
> http://www.djangobook.com/en/1.0/chapter06/
> This django approach has a few advantages over other similar solutions:
> - it's not a simple CRUD, but advanced with filtering.
> - it's not generated, but "live".
> - it's complete (even login protection)
> - it's completly customizable (the UI, the behavior, the style, etc.)
> - it's very fast to learn it and very simple: even a non-programmer can "wrap" an existing
database with such and advanced UI in a few minutes just following the tutorials.
> Please add such functionality to Click too (with Cayenne, but please no Spring).
> In case of using Cayenne, it might be even simpler to implement that it was for Django,
since no reverse engineering of the DB is required: the Cayenne config files contain all the
required entities and relationships (and there's also support for "generic entites").
> Also the Django style files could be reused as they are since the license allows this.
> This is something no other Click concurrent framework has (in the javaland).
> Thank you very much in advance,
> Gustav.
