Basic usage:

1. Download and then include the jQuery mentions-kinder.js plugin's stylesheet & JS files on the webpage which has jQuery library included.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="mentions-kinder.css">
<script src="//"></script>
<script src="mentions-kinder.min.js"></script>

2. Call the function on the target text field (input field or textarea) and customize the action for each trigger character.

  trigger: {
    '#': {
        triggerName: 'tag',
        autocompleter: tagAutocompleter
    '@': {
        triggerName: 'member',
        autocompleter: simpsonAutocompleter

3. If no options are provided, use @ with simpsonsAutocompleter only.


4. Configure autocompleter by extending from a base autocompleter (Select2 plugin).

var simpsonAutocompleter = $.MentionsKinder.Autocompleter.Select2Autocompleter.extend({
    select2Options: {
        data: [
            {id:'homer',text:'Homer Jay Simpson'},
            {id:'marge',text:'Marjorie Simpson'},
            {id:'bart',text:'Bartholomew JoJo Simpson'},
            {id:'lisa',text:'Lisa Marie Simpson'},
            {id:'maggie',text:'Margaret Simpson'}
