The nicknames plugin

The nicknames plugin adds a virtual field my_nickname to a model of your application, letting users give their individual nickname to individual rows of that model. On their dashboard they will then get a welcome message that lists all nicknamed database rows.

Giving a nickname is a pragmatic way for quickly creating a shortcut to an often-visited database row.



A name used by a given user to refer to a given database rows.
