Korean quick address lookup using Django and jQuery

Posted by Dan on Friday the 7th of October, 2011

I was making an eCommerce site using Django for a Korean company, being as this company ships products to customers parts of the site need users to enter their address. Typically Korean sites will have a popup window where you then need to type in part of the address and then press a search button and then click on the address you want to select. I wanted to make a simple app using Django that is slick and fast for the user to select their address.

You can download the Korean Address Lookup app from Github and you can view a demo of it online.
