DOMni Search

A search bar component for filtering DOM nodes based on content.

Get Started

Include the script:

<script src=""></script>

Have a host input search element and a couple elements amongst which to search:

<input type="search" />
    <li>foo bar</li>
    <li>foo baz</li>
    <li>bar baz</li>

After the page is loades, construct an index of the searchable DOM elements:

var idx = new SearchIndex('div > li');
// Second parameter is a boolean for case sensitivity. Defaults to false (insensitive).

Optionally store some settings in an object:

var settings = {
    delay: 500, // ms to delay search after typing
    any: false // wether to look for elements that match any word

And then decorate your input as a Domni Search Bar:

var bar = new SearchBar('input[type=search]', idx, settings);
