Fast Select is a simple, fast, fully customizable jQuery plugin for enhancing the default select box and input field that provides endless features like searching, filtering, tagging, single-select, multi-select, autocomplete and dynamic AJAX content.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery fast select plugin's files on the webpage. Be sure to include the fastselect.js script after jQuery library.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/fastselect.min.css">
  ...
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="dist/fastselect.js"></script>

2. Create a basic multi select box that loads data from option values.

<select class="multipleSelect" multiple name="language">
    <option value="Afghanistan">Afghanistan</option>
    <option value="Albania">Albania</option>
    <option value="Algeria">Algeria</option>
    <option value="Andorra">Andorra</option>
    <option value="Angola">Angola</option>
    ...
</select>

3. Create a dynamic tags input that loads data from an external JSON file.

<input type="text" multiple class="demo" data-url="data.json" name="language">
$('.demo').fastselect();

4. Create a dynamic tags input where options passed via data attributes.

<input
    type="text"
    multiple
    class="demo"
    value="Algeria,Angola"
    data-initial-value='[{"text": "Algeria", "value" : "Algeria"}, {"text": "Angola", "value" : "Angola"}]'
    data-url="data.json"
    data-load-once="true"
    name="language">
$('.demo').fastselect();
