Search.js is a jQuery based live search plugin which adds an autocomplete/autosuggest box (for local JSON data) to your search input. The plugin will show a list of results based on keywords defined in the JSON data as you type something in a text input, as seen on Google instant search.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery library and the jQuery search.js plugin at the bottom of the web page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.2.min.js"></script>
<script src="src/search.js"></script>

2. Add your data into a JSON file named data.json.

[
  {
    "name":"jQuery",
    "web": "http://www.jquery.com",
    "description": "jQuery Official Website",
    "keywords": [
      "js",
      "library"
    ]
  },
  {
    ...
  },
]

3. Add a search input into your web page.

<input placeholder="Search keywords" name="search" class="search">

4. Create an ul element to output the results as a list.

<ul class="results"></ul>
