Usage With Django Rest Framework

Because the tags in django-taggit need to be added into a TaggableManager() we cannot use the usual Serializer that we get from Django REST Framework. Because this is trying to save the tags into a list, which will throw an exception.

To accept tags through a REST API call we need to add the following to our Serializer:

from taggit.serializers import (TagListSerializerField,

class YourSerializer(TaggitSerializer, serializers.ModelSerializer):

    tags = TagListSerializerField()

    class Meta:
        model = YourModel
        fields = '__all__'

And you’re done, so now you can add tags to your model.
