Package Documentation

Latest Version: 1.8.8

Overview

Django Tags Input is a module that gives you a modified version of the Xoxco jQuery Tags Input library within Django.

The result is a very pretty interface with tags and autocomplete which can optionally automatically create new items when they are missing.

One of the most useful features of Django Tags Input is that it stores the elements in the order which you input.

So if you insert B, A, C into the database, it will return it sorted the way you entered it: B, A, C.

How to install

Installing this module only takes a couple of minutes.

  1. Install the module itself

    pip install django-tags-input

    # or

    easy_install django-tags-input

  2. Add tags_input to your INSTALLED_APPS setting in the Django settings.py.

    Example:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        # ... your other installed apps
        'tags_input',
    )
    
  3. Add the mappings to your settings.py file:

    Example:

    TAGS_INPUT_MAPPINGS = {
        'some_app.SomeKeyword': {
            'field': 'some_field',
        },
        'some_app.SomeOtherKeyword': {
            'fields': ('some_field', 'some_other_field'),
        },
        'some_app.SomeSortedKeyword': {
            'field': 'some_field',
            'ordering': [
                'some_field',
                'some_other_field',
            ],
            'filters': {

            'create_missing': True,
        },
    }

    urlpatterns = patterns('',
        url(r'^tags_input/', include('tags_input.urls', namespace='tags_input')),
        # ... other urls ...
    )
