``django-taggit`` a simpler approach to tagging with Django.  Add ``"taggit"`` to your
``INSTALLED_APPS`` then just add a TaggableManager to your model and go::

    from django.db import models

    from taggit.managers import TaggableManager

    class Food(models.Model):
        # ... fields here

        tags = TaggableManager()

Then you can use the API like so::

    >>> apple = Food.objects.create(name="apple")
    >>> apple.tags.add("red", "green", "delicious")
    >>> apple.tags.all()
    [<Tag: red>, <Tag: green>, <Tag: delicious>]
    >>> apple.tags.remove("green")
    >>> apple.tags.all()
    [<Tag: red>, <Tag: delicious>]
    >>> Food.objects.filter(tags__name__in=["red"])
    [<Food: apple>, <Food: cherry>]

Tags will show up for you automatically in forms and the admin.

If you want to enforce lowercase tags everywhere (recommended, to avoid
ending up with tags 'Music' and 'music' which are functionally identical
but show up in different taxonomies), add to


If you want to prevent certain words from being added as tags (such as
English articles to, from, the, of, etc.) add to

``TAGGIT_STOPWORDS = [u'a', u'an', u'and', u'be', u'from', u'of']``

``django-taggit`` requires Django 1.1 or greater.
