⚠ Beta Quality Fork ⚠

This is a fork of drikusroor's fork of [mattzollinhofer's] (https://github.com/mattzollinhofer/vue-typeahead-bootstrap) original project. The reason I forked it is that I needed a Vue 3 compatible version of the component that was compatible with Bootstrap 5. I have made some changes to the components to move them to the Vue 3 composition API and clean up some of the slot mechanics (which are no longer needed in Vue 3, and I suspect were not needed in Vue 2 either). I did not have to make any changes to the CSS for Bootstrap 5 compatibility, though in the future I may if an issue is found.

Also worth noting, I've migrated to TypeScript as well, since I prefer it for Vue 3 projects. The Unit Tests (which run and pass) are still in JavaScript, but I may migrate them to TypeScript in the future (PRs welcome).


Currently, I've changed a lot of the original code, but haven't bothered migrating VuePress to Vue 3 yet. I'm not sure if I will do that (the Vue 3 version is in RC right now) or migrate to VitePress. I'm also not sure how much work I want to do maintaining this project. I'm happy to accept PRs, but I need it for exactly one side project, and I may even be factoring it out of that project eventually.

If there's interest in the project, I'm happy to maintain it; the first step would be fixing up the documentation (and this readme). If you're interested in helping with that, please let me know (via a PR).


The only real difference between this project and the original in terms of getting started locally is that you just need to run npm run dev to start the demo site. The rest of the instructions in the original readme should be the same.

Why not a PR to the original project?

I did consider that, but I wanted to make a lot of changes to the project, and I wasn't sure if the original author would be interested in those changes. I also wanted to make sure that I could publish the package under my own name on npm, so that I didn't have to wait for an update version to move forward for my one use case. If the original project is still active, I'm happy to contribute back to it, but I'm not sure if it is.

If there is a desire, I've pushed a git tag before-rename that should be all the changes prior to the rename of the project, which I did after verifying and testing that the project worked with Vue 3. If the original author wants those changes without worrying about the other junk, that's the tag to pull from.

In terms of the mechanics of what needed to be updated, it wasn't that hard to get it working with Vue 3, but it was a bit of work. I'm happy to work with the original author if they're interested in updating the project, but don't want to just merge my work. (I made style change to files and such as well, which I'm not sure the original author would want.)

2.13.0 Release - Migration Necessary

If you were using a version prior to 2.13.0, you'll need to change all references of vue-bootstrap-typeahead or vue-typeahead-bootstrap to vue-bootstrap-autocomplete and of VueBootstrapTypeahead or VueTypeaheadBootstrap to VueBootstrapAutocomplete.
