<remote-input> element

An input element that sends its value to a server endpoint and renders the response body.


$ npm install @github/remote-input-element


import '@github/remote-input-element'
<!-- Filter a list of items from the server -->
<remote-input src="/query" aria-owns="results">
<ul id="results"></ul>

A GET request will be sent to /query?q=${input.value}.

The parameter name (q) is customizable with the [param] attribute:

<!-- Live preview of Markdown -->
<remote-input src="/preview" aria-owns="md-preview" param="body">
<div id="md-preview"></div>

Styling loading state

A boolean [loading] attribute is added to <remote-input> when a network request begins and removed when it ends.

.loading-icon { display: none; }
remote-input[loading] .loading-icon { display: inline; }


const remoteInput = document.querySelector('remote-input')

// Network request lifecycle events.
remoteInput.addEventListener('loadstart', function(event) {
  console.log('Network request started', event)
remoteInput.addEventListener('loadend', function(event) {
  console.log('Network request complete', event)
remoteInput.addEventListener('load', function(event) {
  console.log('Network request succeeded', event)
remoteInput.addEventListener('error', function(event) {
  console.log('Network request failed', event)
