Accordion Live Filter is a very small jQuery plugin which enables the user to filter a hierarchical accordion list through a text field.

How to use it:

1. Create an accordion from an html list.

<ul id="menu" class="filterable">
  <li>
    <label>Blue</label>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">Primary</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Navy</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Baby</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Steel</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Ocean</a></li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li>
    <label>Red</label>
    <ul>
      <li>Primary</li>
      <li>Crimson</li>
      <li>Cherry</li>
      <li>Ruby</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li>
    <label>Green</label>
    <ul>
      <li>Primary</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
</ul>

2. Create a text field for the accordion list filter.

<input class="filter" data-alf="#menu" placeholder="Filter colors">

3. Apply you custom CSS styles to the accordion list.

.filter {
  margin-bottom: 0.4rem;
  padding-right: 15px;
}
.alf-delete {
  text-decoration: none;
  color: #ffffff;
  background: #cccccc;
  border-radius: 50%;
  display: inline-block;
  font-size: 75%;
  line-height: 0.95;
  padding: 0 2px;
  position: absolute;
  margin: 4px 0 0 -14px;
  opacity: 0.5;
}
.alf-delete:hover {
  opacity: 1;
}
.filterable {
  margin:0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}
.filterable .potential {
  font-weight: bold;
}
.filterable li {
  list-style: none;
}
.filterable label {
  font-weight: bold;
  cursor: pointer;
}
.filterable label:before {
  content: "▸";
  padding-right: 5px;
}
.filterable .expanded:before {
  content: "▾"
}
.filterable ul {
  display: none;
  margin: 0 0 0 20px;
  padding: 0;
}
