Description (last modified by Mathieu Poussin)

I think it would be interesting for custom applications to register links in various places in the admin area.

The typical example would be the admindocs module, instead of hardcoding it in the admin template, we could have something like

admin.register_link(title=_('Documentation'), url=reverse('...'), location='header_right', staff_only=True))

And a specific code in the template like :

{% for link in admin.links.header_right %}
<a href="{{ link.url }}">{{ link.title }}</a>
{% endfor %}

We could also add other locations (Like a new pane in the admin frontpage, etc.)

So any application could easily add its own links.

Currently, as far I a know, the only way to do this is to override the admin templates.

I'm open to exploring this. Before writing a lot of code, it would be a good idea to submit the proposal to the DevelopersMailingList to get feedback from others and nail down the design. See #18665 for some related ideas.
