    Awesomplete is an ultra lightweight, customizable, simple autocomplete widget with zero dependencies, built with modern standards for modern browsers.


    There are a few ways to obtain the needed files. Here are 2 of them:

    1. CDN server
    1. Another way to get up and running is by using yarn or npm:
    yarn add awesomplete
    npm install awesomplete --save

    More information about the npm package can be found here.

    Basic Usage

    Before you try anything, you need to include awesomplete.css and awesomplete.js in your page, via the usual tags:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="awesomplete.css" />
    <script src="awesomplete.js" async></script>

    Then you can add an Awesomplete widget by adding the following input tag:

    <input class="awesomplete"
           data-list="Ada, Java, JavaScript, Brainfuck, LOLCODE, Node.js, Ruby on Rails" />

    Add class="awesomplete" for it to be automatically processed (you can still specify many options via HTML attributes) Otherwise you can instantiate with a few lines of JS code, which allow for more customization.

    There are many ways to link an input to a list of suggestions. The simple example above could have also been made with the following markup, which provides a nice native fallback in case the script doesn’t load:

    <input class="awesomplete" list="mylist" />
    <datalist id="mylist">
        <option>Ruby on Rails</option>

    Or the following, if you don’t want to use a <datalist>, or if you don’t want to use IDs (since any selector will work in data-list):

    <input class="awesomplete" data-list="#mylist" />
    <ul id="mylist">
        <li>Ruby on Rails</li>

    There are multiple customizations and properties able to be instantiated within the JS. Libraries and definitions of the properties are available in the Links below.
