Octofilter is a jQuery plugin that converts a regular text input into a tags input with support for autocomplete while typing. Enter a character into the tags input and you will see an autocomplete dropdown list populated with categorized suggestions, based on Bootstrap's tab component.

How to use it:

1. Make sure you have jQuery library and Twitter's Bootstrap framework loaded in your web project.

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

2. Download the plugin and include the jquery-octofilter.js and jquery-octofilter.css in your project. Note that the jquery-octofilter.js script need to be loaded after jQuery library.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/jquery-octofilter.css">
<script src="path/to/jquery-octofilter.js"></script>

3. Create a standard text field for the tags input.

<input type="text" id="input" placeholder="Type to search...">

4. Call the plugin on the input field and define your custom categorized suggestions as follow.

$('#input').octofilter({
  source: {
    country: ['Brazil', 'United States', 'Japan'],
    filter: ['Published', 'Unpublished'],
    status: ['Active','Inactive']
  }
});

5. Options and defaults.
