Implement HTMX in the Admin

In theory HTMX can save data to the database without needing to click Save. This would completely change the program flow and users would need to come to terms with the change. Therefore this isn't a minor change. Hence version 2.x.

As an experiment, we have implemented some htmx on the home page.

If you are logged-in, the chemicals search button is now htmx driven. It detects your login detail and executes a query for your chemicals. Refreshing the page makes the results disappear. Clicking it again brings them back.

I think we will wait for the Django team to use htmx (and hopefully TailwindCSS) in the Admin. There doesn't seem much point pre-inventing that wheel!

We will certainly use it further at every opportunity because it rocks!
