External Dependencies

  • Django - This is obvious.
  • jQuery - This is not included in the package since it is expected that in most scenarios this would already be available.
  • Memcached (python-memcached) - If you plan on running multiple python processes with GENERATE_RANDOM_SELECT2_ID enabled, then you need to turn on ENABLE_SELECT2_MULTI_PROCESS_SUPPORT. In that mode it is highly recommended that you use Memcached, to minimize DB hits.

Example Application

Please see testapp application. This application is used to manually test the functionalities of this package. This also serves as a good example.

You need only Django 1.4 or above to run that. It might run on older versions but that is not tested.

Special Thanks

  • Samuel Goldszmidt (@ouhouhsami) for reporting many fundamental issues with the code, because of which versions 2.0 and 2.0.1 were released.
