TurboGears Administration System

TG2 Extensions

TG2 has some extensions which offer built-in functionality you can add to your application. This is somewhat different from installing a WSGI application in your stack because the extensions are intended to be more tightly integrated with the components that make up a TurboGears application.

Admin

The TurboGears Admin System is a great way to get started with your database. Once your model is defined, this extension provides a set of pages to help you create, view, delete, and edit your database objects.

Todo

Difficulty: Easy. Make this extension more prominent, more likely to be found
