Implementing Autocomplete in Django

Published

Overview¶
Autocompletes are based on 3 moving parts:

  • widget compatible with the model field, does the initial rendering,
  • javascript widget initialization code, to trigger the autocomplete,
  • and a view used by the widget script to get results from.

the widget to propose to the user. DAL leverages Djangos class based views
and Mixins to for code reuse.
