Usage
-----

Chaining filtering through relations
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To enable chained filtering through relations:

.. code-block:: python

from rest_framework import viewsets
import django_filters
from rest_framework_chain import ChainedFilterSet, RelatedFilter

# Just a regular FilterSet
class UserFilter(django_filters.FilterSet):
username = django_filters.CharFilter(name='username')
...

class PageFilter(ChainedFilterSet):
title = django_filters.CharFilter(name='title')
author = RelatedFilter(UserFilter, name='author')

# Then just use the PageFilter as you would any other FilterSet:

class PageView(viewsets.ModelViewSet):
...
filter_class = PageFilter

then we can automatically chain our filters through the ``author`` relation, as so::

/api/page/?author__username=philipn


Allowing any lookup type on a field
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We can use the ``AllLookupsFilter`` to allow all possible lookup types on a particular
field. While we could otherwise specify these by hand, e.g.:

.. code-block:: python

class ProductFilter(django_filters.FilterSet):
min_price = django_filters.NumberFilter(name="price", lookup_type='gte')
...

to allow the ``price__gte`` lookup. But this gets cumbersome, and we sometimes want to
allow any possible lookups on particular fields. We do this by using ``AllLookupsFilter``:

.. code-block:: python

from rest_framework import viewsets
import django_filters
from rest_framework_chain import ChainedFilterSet, AllLookupsFilter

class PageFilter(ChainedFilterSet):
title = AllLookupsFilter(name='title')
...

then we can use any possible lookup on the ``title`` field, e.g.::

/api/page/?title__icontains=park

or ::

/api/page/?title__startswith=The

and also filter on the default lookup (``exact``), as usual::

/api/page/?title=The%20Park

Combining RelatedFilter and AllLookupsFilter
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We can combine ``RelatedFilter`` and ``AllLookupsFilter``:

.. code-block:: python

from rest_framework import viewsets
import django_filters
from rest_framework_chain import ChainedFilterSet, RelatedFilter

class PageFilter(ChainedFilterSet):
title = django_filters.CharFilter(name='title')
author = RelatedFilter(UserFilter, name='author')

# Just a regular FilterSet
class UserFilter(ChainedFilterSet):
username = AllLookupsFilter(name='username')
...

then we can filter like so::

/api/page/?author__username__icontains=john

More information on RelatedFilter
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Recursive relations are supported. You will need to specify the full module
path in the ``RelatedFilter`` definition in some cases, e.g.:

.. code-block:: python

class PersonFilter(ChainedFilterSet):
name = AllLookupsFilter(name='name')
best_friend = RelatedFilter('people.views.PersonFilter', name='best_friend')

class Meta:
model = Person
