class TagField(CharField):
    A "special" character field that actually works as a relationship to tags
    "under the hood". This exposes a space-separated string of tags, but does
    the splitting/reordering/etc. under the hood.
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        kwargs['max_length'] = kwargs.get('max_length', 255)

    def __get__(self, instance, owner=None):
        Tag getter. Returns an instance's tags if accessed on an instance, and
        all of a model's tags if called on a class. That is, this model::

           class Link(models.Model):
               tags = TagField()

        Lets you do both of these::

           >>> l = Link.objects.get(...)
           >>> l.tags
           'tag1 tag2 tag3'

           >>> Link.tags
           'tag1 tag2 tag3 tag4'

        # Handle access on the model (i.e. Link.tags)
        if instance is None:
            return edit_string_for_tags(Tag.objects.usage_for_model(owner))

        return self._get_instance_tag_cache(instance)

    def __set__(self, instance, value):
        Set an object's tags.
        if instance is None:
            raise AttributeError(_('%s can only be set on instances.') %
        if settings.FORCE_LOWERCASE_TAGS and value is not None:
            value = value.lower()
        self._set_instance_tag_cache(instance, value)

    def _save(self, **kwargs): #signal, sender, instance):
        Save tags back to the database
        tags = self._get_instance_tag_cache(kwargs['instance'])
        if tags is not None:
            Tag.objects.update_tags(kwargs['instance'], tags)

    def __delete__(self, instance):
        Clear all of an object's tags.
        self._set_instance_tag_cache(instance, '')

        Helper: get an instance's tag cache.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
