django-autocomplete-light's purpose is to enable autocompletes quickly and
properly in a django project: it is the fruit of **years of R&D**. It was
designed for Django so that every part overridable or reusable independently.
It is stable, tested, documented and fully supported: it tries to be a good
neighbour in Django ecosystem.
**WARNING** you are currently on the v2 branch where new development happens.
master (v1) is still supported for BC.
Features include:
- charfield, foreign key, many to many autocomplete widgets,
- generic foreign key, generic many to many autocomplete widgets,
- remote API backed-autocompletes,
- django template engine support for autocompletes, enabling you to include
images etc ...
- 100% overridable HTML, CSS, Python and Javascript: there is no variable
hidden far down in the scope anywhere.
- add-another popup supported outside the admin too.
- keyboard is supported with enter, tab and
arrows by default.
Each feature has a live example and is fully documented. It is also designed
and documented so that you create your own awesome features too.
`v2 branch <>`_ is
under active development. You might want to use that instead, since it's much
easier to work with and supports python3.
In this case, please refer to the `v2 documentation
**To upgrade to v2**, please enjoy the `v1 to v2 upgrade instructions
<>`_ (documented with love !).
- the Autocomplete class design hasn't changed at all.
- ``yourlabsWidget()`` doesn't parses ``data-*`` options the same,
- the django/form python code has been re-organised ie.
``get_widgets_dict()`` is gone and ``autocomplete_light.ModelForm``
wraps around all features.
