jQuery Inline/In-Place Edit Plugin

This started out as a really simple tutorial piece on how to build your own In-Placed editor with jQuery. See original post at

But as interest in something simple grew so has the code. This plugin has the following supported features:

  • Uses the event delegation variant of .on() so you do not need to re-bind new DOM elements in-order to make them editable
  • legacy support for .live()
  • supports input and textarea elements. other elements supported by extending $.inlineEdit.prototype.controls
  • custom placeholder text for empty areas, defaults to "Click to edit"
  • custom callbacks and cancellable actions via return false.
  • keyboard support. ENTER to save and ESC to cancel.
  • Can be loaded as an AMD module.
