Small project: Advanced django admin customizations for smoother workflow

I am seeking someone who has done something similar before.  If not, this is probably not for you, I do not wish to waste your time.  No agencies please, I want to work directly with a developer.

I need to let 5 people to quickly review, curate, and edit data (two linked models) using the django admin.

Platform is ubuntu, sqlite3 for dev, postgres for production.   I prefer jquery or react for frontend code.

I made the models, and have done basic admin customizations myself (list_display, search_fields, list_filter, etc).

But there are hundreds of records to review.  Opening each to edit will be a very slow workflow.  This team is used to collaborating on google sheets which is very fast, by comparison doing this is very slow.

So I want to make improvements to the django admin:

 - edit a few key fields right from the record list page (without having to open and save) using ajax

 - popping up more record information on hover, to avoid needing to open each record to find long text description

 - ensure all revisions are tracked (presumably with django-reversion), and ideally, can undo

 - handle locking so two users to not clobber each others changes (I was considering django-concurrency, but that has interaction with django-reversion).  No data loss is permissible.

- speed improvements if possible (load time etc)

- (websockets to show other people's admin editing actions are optional, maybe this is too advanced for this project, but if you have done this i would be glad to hear about it)


I considered building a whole new frontend application to do this, I am hoping its more efficient to adjust admin instead (but if you think this is the wrong way, I would be glad to hear you).

Rock Kitchen Harris Leicester, United Kingdom

Python/Django full stack developer

Come and join a bunch of friendly clever folk that have been building high profile Django apps and websites for almost 10 years.


# WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

We're looking for somebody (preferably onsite but possibly remote) that can jump into existing projects to help maintain and improve them but somebody that can also envision brand new projects from scratch.

We use agile to stay sane and deliver the best solutions for our clients. We use whatever tools and techniques get the job done in a way we can be proud of.

We have lots of fun but we don’t faff about.

The right person will tick these boxes and then some:

  • You’re experienced using Python and Django
    (we don’t measure experience in years - code quality and approach count for everything)
  • You’re a bit good with servers
    (you know your chmod from your rm, and you know how to pronounce PostgreSQL)
  • You understand that clever doesn't mean complex
    (and that lazy can be a good thing, but sloppy never is)
  • You can communicate clearly to non-techies
    (agile means working as part of a diverse team that are relying on you to explain things in plain English)
  • You can’t keep still
    
(you know the code we write today will probably suck in 12 months, and that’s ok so long as we learn from it)
  • You’ve got good taste
    (beauty comes in many forms and you need to be able to spot and embrace it - from a stunning app design to a clean and efficient function)


# WHAT'S ON OFFER?


  • Interesting and varied projects - large and small, scary and non-scary, to keep your brain and fingers active
  • Freedom and trust - use whatever software, tools, books, training, music, coffee, beer, wine and fresh air you need to get the job done
  • A nice computer - a shiny new Apple computer you can set up however you like (we draw the line at installing Windows though)
  • A great space - you’ll get a big desk in an airy office and a Lamp Budget to make it your own
  • Some cool new friends - our diverse team of 30 are regularly socialising - impromptu curry nights, pub lunches, go-karting, foosball, museum visits, letterpress, desk-delivered beer and more
  • Office bees - 30 people inside the office making money, 30,000 on the roof making honey
  • Firewatch - endless conversation about how great a game Firewatch is
  • A generous helping of cash - ah yes, some money too!


# HOW TO APPLY


Surprise us. Let me know via email on the address below why you're the right person for the job in whichever way you think is most appropriate (it’s part of the test).

Be sure to cover some basics like your name, email and relevant experience and let me know as soon as you can - I’m keen to hear from great people.

Thanks!
