Announcing django-admin-histograms

This is just a quick post because it’s already past midnight here. Last week I realized some potentially useful code that I extracted from the DjangoDose and typewar codebases. Basically this code let’s you get simple histogram reports for models in the admin, grouped by a date field. After I released it David Cramer did some work to make the code slightly more flexible, and to provide a generic templatetag for creating these histograms anywhere. The code can be found on github, and if you’re curious what it looks like there’s a screenshot on the wiki. Enjoy.
