# django-dynamic-formsets

A lightweight plugin for managing Django formsets with jQuery.


## About this plugin

This [jQuery](http://jquery.com/) plugin helps you create more usable [Django](http://www.djangoproject.com/) formsets by allowing clients to add and remove forms on the client-side.

It was primarily developed by [Stanislaus Madueke](https://github.com/elo80ka) and re-packaged as a static Django app (with a couple shiny new enhancements and more docs) by [The Dallas Morning News](https://github.com/DallasMorningNews/)

This version of this plugin (like its predecessor) is available under the [BSD License]().

## Getting started

1. Download this repo or install from PyPI:

```bash
pip install django-dynamic-formsets
```

2. Then add `dynamic_formsets` to your `INSTALLED_APPS` setting and run `python manage.py collectstatic`.

3. You can now make your formsets dynamic by adding the following lines to a template:

```Django
{% load static %}

...

{% comment %}
(Your templated DOM here, possibly something like this:)
{% endcomment %}

<form id="my-form" method="post" action="">
{% csrf_token %}
{{ formset.media }}
{% for form in formset %}
<div class="individual-form">
{{ form.as_p }}
</div>
{% endfor %}
</form>

...

<script src="{% static " dynamic_formsets="" jquery.formset.js"="" %}"="" type="text/javascript"> </script>

<script type="text/javascript">
$('.individual-form').formset();
</script>
```

****


## Configuration

Once you've followed steps 1 to 3 above, you're ready to customize the formset-handling javascript that's now on your page.

Detailed information about all the settings you can change in the javascript will be added to this repo very soon.
