This is the upgraded and jQuery version of Twitter's typeahead.js library which provides a fast, performant auto-complete functionality for Bootstrap 4 based web app.

How to use it:

1. Load the main JavaScript file bootstrap-typeahead.js after jQuery & Bootstrap's JS files.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/bootstrap-typeahead.js"></script>

2. Attach the plugin to the input field and specify the dataset as follows:

<input type="text" class="form-control" id="field-state" placeholder="State">
document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function(){
  var substringMatcher = function(strs) {
      return function findMatches(q, cb) {
          var matches, substringRegex;
          matches = [];

          substrRegex = new RegExp(q, 'i');

          $.each(strs, function(i, str) {
              if (substrRegex.test(str))
                  matches.push(str);
          })

          cb(matches);
      }
  }

  var states = ['Alabama', 'Alaska', 'Arizona', 'Arkansas', 'California',
        'Colorado', 'Connecticut', 'Delaware', 'Florida', 'Georgia', 'Hawaii',
        'Idaho', 'Illinois', 'Indiana', 'Iowa', 'Kansas', 'Kentucky', 'Louisiana',
        'Maine', 'Maryland', 'Massachusetts', 'Michigan', 'Minnesota',
        'Mississippi', 'Missouri', 'Montana', 'Nebraska', 'Nevada', 'New Hampshire',
        'New Jersey', 'New Mexico', 'New York', 'North Carolina', 'North Dakota',
        'Ohio', 'Oklahoma', 'Oregon', 'Pennsylvania', 'Rhode Island',
        'South Carolina', 'South Dakota', 'Tennessee', 'Texas', 'Utah', 'Vermont',
        'Virginia', 'Washington', 'West Virginia', 'Wisconsin', 'Wyoming'
  ];

  $('#field-state').typeahead(
    {
      hint: true,
      highlight: true,
      minLength: 1,
    },
    {
      name: 'state',
      source: substringMatcher(states)
    })
})
