Tagalizer is a lightweight jQuery plugin for generating a tag input where the users are able to type multiple tags/tokens using specific delimiters.

More features:

  • Min/max length of tags.
  • Remove tags by clicking on the 'x' icon.
  • Prevents duplicate tags.
  • Custom delimiters.
  • Initial values supported.
  • Custom template.
  • Serialize and output the values in a hidden input.

How to use it:

1. Load the OPTIONAL Font Awesome 4 icon font for the 'Remove' button.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="font-awesome.min.css">

<link rel="stylesheet" href="tagalizer.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="tagalizer.js"></script>
