Disable HTML inputs for dict/list fields #5702

ListField & DictField do not seem to have proper HTML form support. Until they do, it would make sense to render a disabled form input, similar to how nested list serializers are currently handled.

Is there any reason not to disable these inputs?

Additionally, I would add tests for this, but I don't see any relevant tests for serializer form rendering.

Given current limitations, I agree that disabling these fields is the best approach.

The solution here is for users to provide their own templates adding whatever widgets are needed for their use-case. That's out of scope for core as of now. (Would make some good blog posts though.)
