jquery.mentionsInput is a small, but awesome UI component that allows you to "@mention" someone in a text message, just like you are used to on Facebook or Twitter.

This project is written by Kenneth Auchenberg, and started as an internal project at Podio, but has then been open sourced to give it a life in the community.

This project is currently unmaintained (Feb. 13 2013)

The newest work can be found in the 1.5-branch, but I haven't had the time to complete it.

I anyone is up for improving mentionsInput, then let me know, and we figure something out.


To get started -- checkout


  • Fix open issues.
  • Seperate mentionsInput from jQuery, and expose as AMD/CJS module.
  • Package component up for bower and components.
  • Seperate autocompleter, so it's possible to use bootstrap, jquery, etc-autocompleters
  • Define better interface to call methods.
  • Add the option to have a hidden-input that contains the syntaxed-version, so it's easier to use out of the box.
  • Add unit tests!
