  • Uses jQuery UI Autocomplete.
  • ForeignKey and ManyToManyField completition.
  • Completition for CharField, IntegerField and hopefully any Field.
  • Easy Admin integration.

Usage Example

Make the files under autocomplete/media accessible from settings.AUTOCOMPLETE_MEDIA_PREFIX (You can accomplish this by either linking or copying autocomplete/media in your project's media dir):

AUTOCOMPLETE_MEDIA_PREFIX = '/path/to/autocomplete/media/'

Include the view in your project's URLConf:

from autocomplete.views import autocomplete

url('^autocomplete/', include(autocomplete.urls))

Register a couple of AutocompleteSettings objects and start using them (for example in

from django.contrib import admin
from django.contrib.auth.models import Message

from autocomplete.views import autocomplete, AutocompleteSettings
from autocomplete.admin import AutocompleteAdmin

class UserAutocomplete(AutocompleteSettings):
    search_fields = ('^username', '^email')

autocomplete.register(Message.user, UserAutocomplete)

class MessageAdmin(AutocompleteAdmin, admin.ModelAdmin):
    pass, MessageAdmin)
