When things go wrongΒΆ

There is a convenience view to visualize the registry, login as staff, and open the autocomplete url, for example: /autocomplete_light/.

Ensure that:

  • jquery is loaded,
  • autocomplete_light/static.html is included once, it should load autocomplete.js, widget.js and style.css,
  • your form uses autocomplete_light widgets,
  • your channels are properly defined see /autocomplete/ if you included autocomplete_light.urls with prefix /autocomplete/.

If you don’t know how to debug, you should learn to use:

Firebug javascript debugger
Open the script tab, select a script, click on the left of the code to place a breakpoint
Ipdb python debugger
Install ipdb with pip, and place in your python code: import ipdb; ipdb.set_trace()

If you are able to do that, then you are a professional, enjoy autocomplete_light !!!

If you need help, open an issue on the github issues page.
