Django Nested Formsets
Formsets are a Django abstraction that make it easier to manage multiple instances of a single Form on a page. In 2009 I wrote a blog post about using nesting formsets using Django 1.1. This is a generic implementation of the technique described there, targeting Django 1.11. A follow-up blog post provides additional context.
You can install Django Nested Formsets using your favorite package management tool. For example:
$ pip install django-nested-formset
You can also install the latest development version:
$ pip install git+https://github.com/nyergler/nested-formset#egg=django-nested-formset
After installing the package, you can use the
nestedformset_factory function to create your formset class.
If you'd like to work on the source, I suggest cloning the repository and creating a virtualenv.
$ cd nested-formset $ virtualenv . $ source bin/activate $ python setup.py develop
The last line will install the installation and test dependencies.
To run the unit test suite, run the following:
$ python setup.py test
