Minimal jQuery Live Search Plugin With Fade Effect - jSearch

jSearch is an ultra lightweight (1kb) jQuery live search plugin which enables an input field to filter through a large data set by fading out the unmatched entries.

How to use it:

1. Download and load the jQuery jSearch plugin's script after the latest version of jQuery library (Slim build is recommended).

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/jsearch.js"></script>

2. Add the strings you'd like to filter through into the data-type attribute as follows.

<li class="item" data-type="vegan pizza">vegan pizza</li>
<li class="item" data-type="coke soda">coke soda</li>
<li class="item" data-type="cheese pizza">cheese pizza</li>
<li class="item" data-type="pepsi soda">pepsi soda</li>
<li class="item" data-type="chocolate cake">chocolate cake</li>
<li class="item" data-type="glaze donut">glaze donut</li>
<li class="item" data-type="cheese cake">cheese cake</li>
<li class="item" data-type="cream donut">cream donut</li>

3. Create a normal input field to filter through the html list.

<input placeholder="Search...">
