django-chosen

django-chosen is a project that makes available django FormFields that uses the Chosen javascript plugin. It was created by developers at The Atlantic.

Note that there is a select field library with even more features available at https://github.com/theatlantic/django-select2-forms. Most implementation work will go towards django-select2-forms.

Installation

The recommended way to install from source is with pip:

    pip install -e "git+https://github.com/theatlantic/django-chosen.git#egg=django-chosen"

If the source is already checked out, use setuptools:

    python setup.py develop

or, you can install from pypi:

    pip install django-chosen

Usage

django-chosen makes the following fields and widget available:

Fields:

  • ChosenChoiceField
  • ChosenModelChoiceField
  • ChosenMultipleChoiceField
  • ChosenModelMultipleChoiceField

Widgets:

  • ChosenSelect
  • ChosenSelectMultiple

The django-chosen fields can be passed an optional kwarg overlay that overrides the text which appears when no option is selected in the dropdown.

Add chosen to your INSTALLED_APPS, then, in your template, inject your form medias to get chosen css and js :

{{ form.media }}

Example

from django import forms
from chosen import forms as chosenforms

class BookForm(forms.Form):
    name = forms.CharField(max_length=100)
    quality = chosenforms.ChosenChoiceField(overlay="Select book quality...",
        choices=(('New', 'new'), ('Used', 'used')))
    authors = chosenforms.ChosenModelMultipleChoiceField(queryset=Author.objects.all())
