Replicate Form Fields From A Custom Template - multiForm

Yet another jQuery based form clone plugin that duplicates form sections from a specified template and adds a prefix to ids, names, and attributes of form fields and labels.

Compatible with Bootstrap and Materialize frameworks.

How to use it:

1. Add jQuery library (slim build) and the jQuery multiForm plugin's script to the page.

<script src="" 
<script src="multiform.min.js"></script>

2. Create a template instance of the form to be replicated.

<div class="multiform-template" data-prefix="test_prefix">
  <div id="test_prefix-add_button">
    New Ingredient
  <!-- Comments will be ignored when templating the form out -->
  <div class="input-field col m8">
    <select name="ingredient" required id="id_ingredient">
      <option value="" selected>---------</option>
      <option value="1">butter</option>
      <option value="2">flour</option>
      <option value="3">milk</option>
      <option value="4">eggs</option>
    <label for="id_ingredient">Ingredient:</label>
  <div class="input-field">
    <input type="text" name="quantity_amount" required maxlength="8" id="id_quantity_amount" />
    <label for="id_quantity_amount">Qty:</label>
  <div class="input-field">
    <select name="quantity" id="id_quantity">
      <option value="" selected>---------</option>
      <option value="1">count</option>
      <option value="2">dozen</option>
      <option value="3">Dash</option>
      <option value="4">Pinch</option>
      <option value="5">Teaspoon</option>
      <option value="6">Tablespoon</option>
      <option value="7">Fluid ounce</option>
      <option value="8">Cup</option>
      <option value="9">Pint</option>
      <option value="10">Quart</option>
      <option value="11">Gallon</option>
    <label for="id_quantity">Quantity:</label>
  <div class="remove-container" class="input-field">
    <div class="remove-button">

3. Initialize the plugin by calling the function on the template.

$( ".multiform-template" ).multiFormTemplate();

4. An optional function which will be called when clicking the 'Add' button and after the appendChild completes.

$( ".multiform-template" ).multiFormTemplate({
  postAddFunction: function() {
    //  do something
