Django: adding additional Admin static and writing JS snippets for Django Admin
Rather than writing a widget, that is more proper way here... I was using a widget already (from another package). So I could not use it properly, at least without a ton of overrides and complexity it leads to. SO I've decided to add the JS functionality to override a lack of backend.
This add should list your files, loaded in the admin. So you can access them and see in the Django admin frontend itself. Like so:
There is no usual jQuery namespace there. but there is a simple hack.
Thats all. Yu may improvise. E.g. dynamically create or alter DOM elements and manipulate them. Im my case it was a simple Admin banner overlay into image displayed by 3-d party django plugin.
Imagination is the limit.
