<link href="css/multi.select.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js" 
<script src="js/multi.select.js"></script>

2. Create a placeholder for the multi-select dropdown.

<div class="multi" id="multi"></div>

3. Define your own selectable options for the dropdown list.

const myData = {
      "BD": "Bangladesh",

      "BG": "Bulgaria",
      "BA": "Bosnia and Herzegovina",

      "WF": "Wallis and Futuna",
      "BL": "Saint Barthelemy",
      "BM": "Bermuda",

4. Initialize the plugin to render a multi-select dropdown inside the placeholder element you just created.
