Minimal jQuery Filter Plugin For Various Types Of Content - Search it

Search it is a very small jQuery live search / filter plugin which enables a text field to fast search through large element sets such like html lists, tables and even collapsible content. Compatible with the famous Materialize framework.

Basic usage:

1. Download the zip and include the minified version of the jQuery Search it plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="search-it.min.js"></script>

2. Call the function on the target container and specify the child elements you want to search through.

  itemSelector: 'li',
  inputLabelValue : 'Search...'

3. By default the plugin will automatically generate a search field above the target container. You can also enable the live search functionality on a specified input field like this:

<div id="input-container">
  <input id="live-search" type="text">
  $searchInput: $('#input-container').find('input'),

4. More customization options with default values.


  // target search field
  $searchInput: null,

  // placeholder text
  inputLabelValue: 'Search',

  // selector for child elements
  itemSelector: ".collapsible-body a",

  // search field template
  searchTemplate: '<div class="input-field"><label for="search">Search</label><input type="text" id="search"></div>',

  // header indentifier
  // require Materialize
  headerIdentifier: '.collapsible-header',

  // use Materialize's collapsible component
  // require Materialize
  useMaterializeCollapsible: false,

  // triigered on complete
  complete: function() {}
