Search Keyword Highlighting Plugin With jQuery - Highlite

Highlite is a really small jQuery text highlighting plugin which enables you to live search and highlight text found in a specific container.

How to use it:

1. Add the jQuery Highlite plugin after you've added jQuery JavaScript library into the webpage.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/jquery.highlite.js"></script>

2. Create a search field for the plugin.

<input type="search" id="search" placeholder="Search">

3. Active the plugin and specify the container you want to search through.

$("#search").on("search change keyup", function () {
  var text = this.value;
      text: text

4. Style the searched/highlighted text in the CSS.

.highlight {
  background-color: yellow;
  border-radius: .125em;
