jQuery Plugin – Tokenizing Auto Complete Text Entry

This jQuery plugin will enable you to easily add an auto complete text box in your form. It allows users to select multiple items from a predefined list, using auto completion as they type to find each item.

For token input; script can fetch data from wherever you like (e.g., database or hardcoded list), but it must take exactly one GET parameter named “q” which will contain the query string(e.g., http://www.example.com/myscript?q=query) and outputs JSON search results in a specific format that this plugin understands.


  • Intuitive UI for selecting multiple items from a large list
  • Layout controlled fully in CSS, easily customizable
  • Result caching reduces server load
  • No images required, just the plugin’s .js file and some CSS
  • Handles JSON search data for auto completion
  • Smooth animations when results load
  • Select items using the mouse or keyboard
