placeSearch.js is a very small jQuery plugin that enabled you to select geolocated suggestions from a dropdown list using Google Places API.

How to use it:

1. Download and place the 'placeSearch.js' script after jQuery JavaScript library.

<script src='//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js'></script>
<script src='placeSearch.js'></script>

2. Create a normal input field for the place autocomplete.

<input id="autocomplete" placeholder="Enter your address" type="text"></input>

3. Create a container element in which you want to embed the Google Maps.

<div id='map'></div>

4. Create another element in which you want to display the results.

<div id='results'></div>

5. Initialize the plugin and insert your own Google API key in the JavaScript.

$("#autocomplete").placeSearch({
  key: "API KEY HERE",
  map: "#map"
});

6. Set the place type you want to use. All supported types could be found here.

$("#autocomplete").placeSearch({
  key: "API KEY HERE",
  map: "#map",
  type: "restaurant"
});

7. Callback functions available.

$("#autocomplete").placeSearch({
  key: "API KEY HERE",
  map: "#map",
  type: "restaurant",
  markerCallback: function(place){
    $("#results").text(JSON.stringify(place));
  },
  callback: function(places){
    $("#results").text(JSON.stringify(places));
  }
});
