Difference from standard Django 1.4 implementation is just structure of list. In django <input> elements are wrapped by their labels, and look like this::

<ul>
    <li><label><input/> Label 1</label>
    <li><label><input/> Label 2</label>
</ul>

This widget puts labels after input elements::

<ul class="form-button-radio">
    <li><input/> <label>Label 1</label>
    <li><input/> <label>Label 2</label>
</ul>

It makes possible to define style for both inputs and labels, hiding inputs and making labels look like pressable buttons. No javascript needed, just CSS (see docstring).

To auto-submit the form when pressing a button, JQuery can be added::

<script>
  $(document).ready(function() {
    $('ul.form-button-radio input[type="radio"]').change(function() {
      $(this).parents('form').submit();
    });
  });
</script>

    To make 3d stateful buttons, add CSS::
