Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-387) Django like Admin Interface.
Date Wed, 19 May 2010 14:46:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLK-387?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12869150#action_12869150

George Stan commented on CLK-387:
---------------------------------

I still don't think this issue should be closed: 
  - if it's closed it get's buried
  - than it will be forgotten
It's just a too good and game changing idea to be forgotten :(.

Why not create a "if_someone_else_does_it"  (or with same suggestive name) target in JIRA
and move it there, but have it open? That way won't create any "false expectations", but it's
still visible and vote-able.

>             Project: Click
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 1.5 M1
>            Reporter: Gustav Weber
>            Assignee: Malcolm Edgar
>            Priority: Critical

> 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.
