Discussion & Help

Selectize is an extensible jQuery-based custom <select>; UI control. It’s useful for tagging, contact lists, country selectors, and so on. It clocks in at around ~7kb (gzipped). The goal is to provide a solid & usable experience with a clean and powerful API.

Features

  • Smart Option Searching / Ranking
    Options are efficiently scored and sorted on-the-fly (using sifter). Want to search an item’s title and description? No problem.
  • Caret between items
    Order matters sometimes. Use the and arrow keys to move between selected items.
  • Select & delete multiple items at once
    Hold down option on Mac or ctrl on Windows to select more than one item to delete.
  • Díåcritîçs supported
    Great for international environments.
  • Item creation
    Allow users to create items on the fly (async saving is supported; the control locks until the callback is fired).
  • Remote data loading
    For when you have thousands of options and want them provided by the server as the user types.
  • Clean API & code
    Interface with it and make modifications easily. Pull requests welcome!
  • Extensible
    Plugin API for developing custom features (uses microplugin).
  • Touch Support
    Plays nice with iOS 5+ devices.

Dependencies

Optional:

Installation and files

All pre-built files needed to use Selectize can be found in the
“dist” folder.

If you’re looking to get started with minimal fuss, include
standalone/selectize.min.js (bundles Sifter and Microplugin
dependencies – also available un-minified for debugging, just remove the
.min part) and css/selectize.default.css.

Selectize is available at cdnjs.

Usage

$('select').selectize(options);

The available options are documented here.

IE8 Support

To support Internet Explorer 8, es5-shim must be added your page.

<!--[if lt IE 9]><script src="http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/es5-shim/2.0.8/es5-shim.min.js"></script><![endif]-->

Custom Builds

By default, all plugins are included. To hand-pick what plugins (if any) to include, run grunt with the “–plugins” flag. After this completes, grab the files you need from the “dist” folder.

# dependencies
npm install

# build selectize
grunt --plugins=
grunt --plugins=*
grunt --plugins=remove_button,restore_on_backspace

Contributing

When issuing a pull request:

  • please do not include/commit changes in the dist/ folder to avoid
    merge conflicts. A good way to include the right files is to use
    git gui or git add when committing to select the files you want to
    add to your commit.

  • please include tests with your feature so that we’re not tempted to
    break it in the future!

Add an entry to the top of the CHANGELOG, and update the documentation
in docs/ as needed. (Refactors and documentation changes don’t need a
changelog entry.)

Squash your commits together in one or a few complete, logical commits,
with a concise and descriptive message. One commit means one
feature/bugfix/thing that has changed, or a diff bringing the code one
step forward to a better, working state.

Once your commit is nice and clean, and you want to discard the other
changes
, you can use git checkout . (that will erase changes to
tracked files) and git clean [-i/--interactive] (to erase untracked
files). However, be careful with those commands, as their function
is to erase things/changes.

Tests

Please ensure all the tests pass:

npm test # phantomjs
BROWSERS=Firefox npm test
BROWSERS=Firefox,Chrome npm test
BROWSERS=Firefox,Chrome,Safari npm test

Local environment

To run Selectize locally:

npm start

You can then run the examples in http://localhost:4000/examples/.

However, be careful not to add the dist/ files in your commit, as
Grunt automatically regenerates the files in dist/ as the source is
changed.
