Tweaks for existing built-in Django"s autocomplete feature

Project description

This simple django app enables users to do a few tweaks to Django’s built-in autocomplete
feature.

Installation

pip install django-model-admin-autocomplete

and then add this to your settings.py module

SILENCED_SYSTEM_CHECKS = ["admin.E039"]

Usage

Consider you have a few models as,

# models.py
class Article(models.Model):
    headline = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    pub_date = models.DateField()
    publications = models.ManyToManyField(Publication)
    reporter = models.ForeignKey(Reporter, on_delete=models.CASCADE)

    def __str__(self):
        return self.headline

and you need autocomplete fields for publications and reporter in models admin.

# admin.py
from django.contrib import admin
from .models import Article
from model_admin_autocomplete import ModelAdminAutoComplete


class ArticleModelAdmin(ModelAdminAutoComplete, admin.ModelAdmin):
    autocomplete_fields = ('publications', 'reporter')


admin.site.register(Article, ArticleModelAdmin)

Demo
