Python 3.x pypi GitHub Action "Run tox" coverage MIT License

Project aims to support Python 3.7+ and Django 2.2+.

For Django < 2.0 version support or python-2.x compatibility, please use version 1.3.4 which is the last version to support python-2.x compatibility.

For Django 2.0/2.1 version support or Python 3.5/3.6 compatibility, please use version 1.5.7 which is the last version to support Django 2.0/2.1 and Python 3.5/3.6 compatibility.

This django library is just a lightweight wrapper on Select2 library and provides easy-to-use basic select2 functionality in a django project. If you need feature-rich solution, i recommend you to look at the latest django-select2 library, which have ajax loading support.

If anyone really wants this functionality in django-easy-select2, please feel free to contribute.

Currently project is not in active development state and is maintained by community. Pull requests are welcomed!

How it looks

Select one of existing values with single-valued choice field (ForeignKeyField, for example):


Easily select 1 or more "categories" for your project, you can also add a new one in the normal, Django-Admin manner by using the green + button with multiple-valued choice field (ManyToManyField):



In your

from django.contrib import admin
from easy_select2 import select2_modelform
from polls.models import Poll

PollForm = select2_modelform(Poll, attrs={'width': '250px'})

class PollAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    form = PollForm

Thats all. All your choice widgets are select2 widgets 250px wide.
