Switch branches/tags

Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?
Solid Select- The Select component for Solid.
  • Built for Solid: leverages fine-grained reactivity primitives for coordination.
  • Flexible: built to support a wide range of cases, from single selects to multi-select autocomplete lists.
  • Extendable: use the pre-fabricated components or build your own from the core primitives.
  • Zero dependencies: Just pair with Solid and good to go.

What's implemented? ✔️

  • A high level Select component that can be configured with either a static or dynamic list of options.
  • Support for single value selection or multiple value selection.
  • createOptions helper for configuring filterable options based on input value (complete with match highlighting). Works with lists of plain strings or can be passed a 'key' to filter against lists of objects. Can also be used to configure creating new options on the fly.
  • Opt-in sensible default styling. Customise easily or style from scratch.
  • Composable building blocks to create your own control.
  • Lower level createSelect primitive if you just want the core logic.

Why did you make it?

I've been part of the SolidJS community for a while now and one of the things I really like is the emphasis on trying things out and sharing them ( The ecosystem is small which creates a lot of opportunity and a lower barrier to entry for sharing I find.

I published my first Solid library ( a short while back as a first dabble in sharing what I had learnt on a personal project. That went well so when I had to create a multi-select autocomplete control for another personal project I knew I'd be sharing that too - and so Solid Select came to be :)
