Twitter typeahead.js jquery plugin

This asset gem packages the twitter typeahead.js jquery plugin for the Rails asset pipeline.

To learn more about typeahead.js read the post Twitter's engineering blog.

This gem includes the standard and minified versions of the assets.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'twitter-typeahead-rails'


gem 'twitter-typeahead-rails', :git => "git://"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install twitter-typeahead-rails


To start using the twitter typeahead.js plugin in your rails app enable it via the asset pipeline (app/assets/javascripts/application.js).

Add one of the following to your application.js manifest:

//= require twitter/typeahead

//= require twitter/typeahead.min

// Twitter typeahead exmaple.

// instantiate the bloodhound suggestion engine
var numbers = new Bloodhound({
  datumTokenizer: Bloodhound.tokenizers.obj.whitespace('num'),
  queryTokenizer: Bloodhound.tokenizers.whitespace,
  local: [
    { num: 'one' },
    { num: 'two' },
    { num: 'three' },
    { num: 'four' },
    { num: 'five' },
    { num: 'six' },
    { num: 'seven' },
    { num: 'eight' },
    { num: 'nine' },
    { num: 'ten' }

// initialize the bloodhound suggestion engine

// instantiate the typeahead UI
$('.example-numbers .typeahead').typeahead(null, {
  displayKey: 'num',
  source: numbers.ttAdapter()

Currently this version tracks version v0.10.2.
