→ Selectize is looking for new members on the maintenance team!
Selectize is an extensible jQuery-based custom
<select>; UI control. It's useful for tagging, contact lists, country selectors, and so on. The goal is to provide a solid & usable experience with a clean and powerful API.
- Smart Option Searching / Ranking Options are efficiently scored and sorted on-the-fly (using sifter). Want to search for an item's title and description? No problem.
- Caret between items Order matters sometimes. Use the ← and → arrow keys to move between selected items.
- Select & delete multiple items at once Hold down option on Mac or ctrl on Windows to select more than one item to delete.
- Díåcritîçs supported Great for international environments.
- Item creation Allow users to create items on the fly (async saving is supported; the control locks until the callback is fired).
- Remote data loading For when you have thousands of options and want them provided by the server as the user types.
- Clean API & code Interface with it and make modifications easily. Pull requests are always welcome!
- Extensible Plugin API for developing custom features (uses microplugin).
- Touch Support Plays nice with iOS 5+ devices.

When issuing a pull request:
please do not include/commit changes in the
lib/folders to avoid merge conflicts. A good way to include the right files is to use
git addwhen committing to select the files you want to add to your commit.
please include tests with your feature so that we're not tempted to break it in the future!
Add an entry to the top of the CHANGELOG, and update the documentation
docs/ as needed. (Refactors and documentation changes don't need a
Squash your commits together in one or a few complete, logical commits, with a concise and descriptive message. One commit means one feature/bugfix/thing that has changed, or a diff bringing the code one step forward to a better, working state.
Once your commit is nice and clean, and you want to discard the other
changes, you can use
git checkout . (that will erase changes to
tracked files) and
git clean [-i/--interactive] (to erase untracked
files). However, be careful with those commands, as their function
is to erase things/changes.
However, be careful not to add the
dist/ files in your commit, as
Grunt automatically regenerates the files in
dist/ as the source is
Please ensure all the tests pass:
npm test # phantomjs BROWSERS=Firefox npm test BROWSERS=Firefox,Chrome npm test BROWSERS=Firefox,Chrome,Safari npm test
