Django Smart Selects
This package allows you to quickly filter or group "chained" models by adding a custom foreign key or many to many field to your models. This will use an AJAX query to load only the applicable chained objects.
Works with Django version 2.2 to 3.2.
Warning: The AJAX endpoint enforces no permissions by default. This means that any model with a chained field will be world readable. If you would like more control over this permission, the
django-autocomplete-light package is a great, high-quality package that enables the same functionality with permission checks.

python manage.py migrate python manage.py loaddata test_app/fixtures/* python manage.py runserver
Then login with admin/admin at http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/
- Add permission checks to enable users to restrict who can use the chained fields.
- Add a
ChainedCheckboxSelectMultiplewidget and adjust
chainedfk.jsto build checkboxes in that case
