Adding django.contrib.databrowse to INSTALLED_APPS cause error.

django.contrib.databrowse has no

After adding django.contrib.databrwose to INSTALLED_APPS, running ./ syncdb, ./ runserver, ... raises following exception.

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'databrowse'

IMHO, following 2 solutions are possible.

  1. Adding to django.contrib.databrowse
  2. Or modify documentation; remove following lines from docs/databrowse.txt
           * Add ``'django.contrib.databrowse'`` to your ``INSTALLED_APPS``
             setting. This will work if your ``TEMPLATE_LOADERS`` setting includes
             the ``app_directories`` template loader (which is the case by
             default). See the `template loader docs`_ for more.}}}

Looks like it's a duplicate of #4058?

  • Resolution worksforme deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Version changed from SVN to 0.96

Same problem this is my stack trace:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 11, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/django/core/", line 1672, in execute_manager
    execute_from_command_line(action_mapping, argv)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/django/core/", line 1564, in execute_from_command_line

    _active[currentThread()] = translation(language)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/django/utils/translation/", line 197, in translation
    default_translation = _fetch(settings.LANGUAGE_CODE)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/django/utils/translation/", line 180, in _fetch
    app = getattr(__import__(appname[:p], {}, {}, [appname[p+1:]]), appname[p+1:])
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'databrowse'

If I set USE_I18N = False then I have this output when I run ./manage validate:

django.contrib.databrowse: No module named databrowse 1 error found

The databrowse app is not included with Django 0.96, it was added on r5011 whilst 0.96 was tagged on r4810.
