An entire tutorial document is dedicated to basically learning the API for modifying the tutorial interface. Why not just create a web application that lets you build an admin interface graphically. It could use drag-and-drop to rearrange the elements and so on. When you were done it would give you the code to paste into your db model.

That's a low priority for now, but if you'd like to contribute something, it'd be pretty awesome. :)

Actually I have been thinking about the similar thing. Generating Django models from the UML. When we can make it (i.e. define metamodel), we have got plenty of editors immediately. (and some free, such as ArgoUML)

Marking this as invalid for now because it's a pipe dream.

In response to the above comment about reusing existing UML authoring tools (such as ArgoUML) to produce both the Django models and the database editing interface, you can check out the following project which does just that:

Note that this tool could be greatly improved but at least it goes in the direction described in this ticket.
