Install dj-termsearch:

Add "termsearch" to your INSTALLED_APPS then just add TermSearchMixin to a view and go:

from django.db import models
from termsearch.views import TermSearchMixin

class MyModelListView(TermSearchMixin, ListView):

    model = MyModel
    term = "title"
    lookup = "iexact"

Check the results at:


Use a list of model fields to use in the search:

class AnotherListView(TermSearchMixin, ListView):

    model = MyModel
    terms = ["title", "content", "author__name"]
    lookup = "iexact"

Map each field to a lookup type:

class YetAnotherListView(TermSearchMixin, ListView):

    model = MyModel
    term_mapping = {
        "title": "icontains",
        "tags__name": "iexact",
        "author__surname": "exact",
