Build Status Latest Version tagged Latest Version on Packagist Installations via composer per month


The repository has a corrected name Levenshtein and can now be found under

The levensthein attribute maintains an index of keywords across other attributes which can be searched using the levensthein algorithm.

NOTE: This uses the autocomplete plugin from jquery-ui. When installing this extension, you must include jquery-ui from CDN as the Contao bundled version only includes the accordion plugin.

To do this, simply add and include a template named j_jquery-ui.html5 in your page layout with the following contents:

<script src="//<?= $GLOBALS['TL_ASSETS']['JQUERY_UI'] ?>/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

WARNING: Ensure to remove the corresponding line from j_accordion.html5 if you are using accordions on your page as otherwise the two will collide.
