** Using the model field **

You can use TagAutocompleteField to enable autocomplition right in your file. In most cases this is the easiest solution. Example:

from django.db import models
from tagging_autocomplete.models import TagAutocompleteField

class SomeModel(models.Model):
        tags = TagAutocompleteField()

** Using the form widget **

Alternatively you can use the TagAutocomplete form widget while creating your form. For example:

from django import forms
from tagging.forms import TagField
from tagging_autocomplete.widgets import TagAutocomplete

class SomeForm(forms.Form):
    tags = TagField(widget=TagAutocomplete())
