Bootstrap Typeahead for Rails

Gem Version


This gem is no longer being updated. Bootstrap typeahead is no longer mantained. I recommend that you switch to Twitter typeahead. Checkout this other two projects that work together to provide the same functinality:

bootstrap-typeahead-rails project integrates the official typeahead plugin with Rails 3 assets pipeline.

Rails > 3.1

Include bootstrap-typeahead-rails in Gemfile;

gem 'bootstrap-typeahead-rails'

or you can install from latest build;

gem 'bootstrap-typeahead-rails', :require => 'bootstrap-typeahead-rails',
                              :git => 'git://'

and run bundle install.


Add this line to app/assets/javascripts/application.js

//= require bootstrap-typeahead-rails

The official Typeahead do not include any styling for it. Nonetheless, you can add this line to app/assets/stylesheets/application.css and you will get a nice one. Or don't, and implement your own – instructions on

*= require bootstrap-typeahead-rails

Using bootstrap-typeahead-rails
