2021-12-17 Django and HTMX #10 - Chained Dropdowns with Django and HTMX by https://twitter.com/bugbytesio


In this video, we build a simple chained dropdown using Django and HTMX.

We will look at a simple scenario where the first dropdown contains a set of university courses, and the second dropdown contains a set of modules for that course.

The contents of the second dropdown depend on the selection of the first dropdown, and we will use HTMX to perform actions when an option in the first dropdown is selected.

HTMX’s documentation refers to this as cascading selects .
