Django JumpToAdmin is my new project that enables content administrators to easily access the Django admin interface for any object presented on their sites.
In practice, Django JumpToAdmin displays links to admin change/delete/list pages when specified objects on a page are hovered over with the mouse. Once clicked, these links open the requested Django admin page in an iframe above the current page.

Django JumpToAdmin is my first Django app meant to be used by other members of the community. I’ve posted the Django JumpToAdmin code on GitHub along with usage instructions. As this is my first public release (and my first time using Git), the code could certainly use some enhancement. Feel free to fork and contribute back.
As of today, only links for change/delete/list are supported. I’d love for this code to grow to support custom admin actions, or at least gain flexibility for custom links. Thinking more long term, I can see this project growing beyond its admin-in-iframe limitations and into an inline editing tool. But for now that’s just a pipe dream.
In the meantime, check out the Django JumpToAdmin code on GitHub. I hope you find it useful.
