* Instalation *

  1. You need to have django-tagging already installed

  2. Download django-tagging-autocomplete and use to install it on your system:

    python install

  3. Download jquery-autocomplete and put it in the folder specified in your project's MEDIA_URL setting. If you want to put it somewhere else add TAGGING_AUTOCOMPLETE_JS_BASE_URL to your project settings.

  4. Add "tagging_autocomplete" to installed apps in your project's settings.

  5. Add the following line to your project's file:

    (r'^tagging_autocomplete/', include('tagging_autocomplete.urls')),

* Usage * ** 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())
