Create Project

Okay fine we start the project of an online library management system using python Django. I hope this project is very helpful for college students & working professional people who are looking for Django source code algorithms. So select your favorite IDE and start to write code. The main file is,

#!/usr/bin/env python
import os
import sys

if __name__ == '__main__':
    os.environ.setdefault('DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE', 'demo_project.settings')
        from import execute_from_command_line
    except ImportError as exc:
        raise ImportError(
            "Couldn't import Django. Are you sure it's installed and "
            "available on your PYTHONPATH environment variable? Did you "
            "forget to activate a virtual environment?"
        ) from exc

After implementing the main code, we need to initialize SQLite database for communicate with back-end process. Because SQLite helped for insert and retrieve data from database with the help of JSON code.

Admin Access

The admins are able to view, edit, delete books from the database. They have full rights to modifying faculty e-books. Every staff has unique id for upload new e-books for their students. But Students are easily check and download the books in PDF format.

The admin work is assign book data & return books for checking the correct date which is given by student. The admin code is

from django.contrib import admin
from library.models import Author, Category, Book, BookLendDetail


class BookAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    list_display = ('title', 'isbn', 'status', 'display_author', 'display_category')

class AuthorAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):

class CategoryAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):

class BookLendDetailAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    list_display = ('book', 'status', 'reader', 'lent_date', 'return_date')
    list_filter = ('status', 'lent_date', 'return_date')

Install dependencies

pip install pillow
