selectr is a jQuery plugin built with Bootstrap that turns the ordinary select list to a searchable select box with multi-select, color-coding, and selection limiting support. All the options can be passed via data attributes or JavaScript.

How to use it:

1. Include the required jQuery library and Twitter Bootstrap3's CSS in the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

2. Add the jQuery selectr plugin's Javascript and CSS after jQuery library.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="selectr.css">
<script src="selectr.js"></script>

3. Create the Html for a searchable multi-select box using data attributes.

<select name="demo" data-selectr-opts='{ "title": "Your title", "placeholder": "Search items", "maxSelection": 3 }'  multiple>
<option data-selectr-color="rgb(0, 163, 0)" value="Value 1"> Value 1 </option>
<option data-selectr-color="rgb(255, 0, 151)" value="Value 2" selected> Value 2 </option>
<option data-selectr-color="rgb(159, 0, 167)" value="Value 3"> Value 3 </option>
...
</select>

<select name="demo" mltiple>
<option data-selectr-color="rgb(0, 163, 0)" value="Value 1"> Value 1 </option>
<option data-selectr-color="rgb(255, 0, 151)" value="Value 2" selected> Value 2 </option>
<option data-selectr-color="rgb(159, 0, 167)" value="Value 3"> Value 3 </option>
...
</select>

<script>
$(document).ready(function () {
$("select").selectr({
"title": "Your title", 
"placeholder": "Search items", 
"maxSelection": 3 
});
});
</script>
