The example app

django-rest-framework-datatables comes with an example application (the Rolling Stone top 500 albums of all time). It’s a great start for understanding how things work, you can play with several options of Datatables, modify the python code (serializers, views) and test a lot of possibilities.

We encourage you to give it a try with a few commandline calls:

$ git clone
$ cd django-rest-framework-datatables-editor
$ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt

You need to download Datatables Editor, the JS+CSS version, and unpack the downloaded archive in django-rest-framework-datatables-editor/static

$ python example/ runserver
$ firefox
