Tapir jQuery plugin

A plugin that makes searching with Tapir a breeze!

Check out the live example

Using the plugin

1. Make sure you have jQuery in your site (any version above 1.2 should work).
2. Add the jquery-tapir.min.js file to your site.
3. Call tapir() on the element you want the results to appear in (don’t forget to pass your token!).


  <!DOCTYPE html>

      <meta charset="utf-8">
      <title>Tapir jQuery plugin example</title>


      <div id="search_results"></div>

      <script src="jquery-1.6.1.min.js"></script>
      <script src="jquery-tapir.min.js"></script>
        $('#search_results').tapir({'token': '4dbfc79e3f61b05b53000021'});




If you pass a function as a complete-option, your function will be executed when the search is complete and the results have been returned, right before they’re appended to the page. Additionally, you can pass a function as a process-option that will allow you to make modifications per result (the following example truncates each result to 50 words):

  'token': '4dbfc79e3f61b05b53000021',
  'complete' : function() { alert("I'm done searching!"); },
  'process' : function(result) { result.summary = result.summary.split(' ', 50).join(' ') + '...'; return result; }
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
