Tiny jQuery Plugin For Long List Filtering - Type To Filter

Type To Filter is a very small jQuery plugin which allows the user to dynamically filter / search long html lists through an input field.

How to use it:

1. Load the latest version of jQuery library and the jQuery type to filter plugin's script into your html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.0.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.typeToFilter.min.js"></script>

2. Add a long html list together with a filter / search field to the page.

<div class="typeToSearch">
  <div class="searchField">
    <input data-origin-value="..." value="..." type="text">
  <ul class="my-list">
    <li class=""><a href="#">Item 1</a></li>
    <li class=""><a href="#">Item 2</a></li>
    <li class=""><a href="#">Item 3</a></li>

3. Active the plugin by calling the function typeToFilter() on the top container.


4. Change default messages when there's no result found.

  zeroResultMessage: '... can not be found!'
