This widget can be imported in your forms.py file and used like so:

formfield = forms.ModelMultipleChoiceField(widget=MultiSelectWidget, queryset=Model.objects.all())

The javascript is provided by Michael's Multiselect. In addition to the javascript you will need jQuery (the latest release is fine) and jQuery UI. The convenient thing is that this widget will style to match whichever jQuery UI you've 'rolled' or selected, making it highly customizable!

Hopefully this helps others who wanted a nice widget with jQuery and were sad to find there were no nice default options, enjoy! :)
