EmailListField for Django

from email.utils import getaddresses, formataddr

from django import forms
from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

class EmailListField(forms.CharField):
    A Django form field which validates a list of email addresses.

    >>> EmailListField().clean('[email protected]')
    [u'[email protected]']

    >>> EmailListField().clean('User 1 <[email protected]>, User 2 <[email protected]>')
    [u'User 1 <[email protected]>', u'User 2 <[email protected]>']

    >>> EmailListField().clean('invalid email address')
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<console>", line 1, in <module>
      File "/home/sciyoshi/chideit/apps/chide/common/mail/", line 21, in clean
        raise forms.ValidationError(self.error_messages['invalid'])
    ValidationError: [u'Please enter a valid list of e-mail addresses.']

    >>> EmailListField().clean('"User 3>" <  "Abc\\@def"  >, User 2 <[email protected] >  , 3rd guy <!def!xyz%[email protected] >')
    [u'"User 3>" <"[email protected]">', u'User 2 <[email protected]>', u'3rd guy <!def!xyz%[email protected]>']
    default_error_messages = {
        'invalid': _('Please enter a valid list of e-mail addresses.')

    def clean(self, value):
        value = super(EmailListField, self).clean(value)

        field = forms.EmailField()

            return [
                formataddr((name, field.clean(addr)))
            for name, addr in getaddresses([value])]
        except forms.ValidationError:
            raise forms.ValidationError(self.error_messages['invalid'])
