#jQuery plugin to make auto complete search easier

##Setup To start include jquery, plugin JS file and plugin CSS file:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.3.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../jquery.fast-search.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../jquery.fast-search.css"/>

Create an HTML input element to apply the plugin:

<input name="q" placeholder="Search" type="text" id="q" />

And initialize the plugin:

<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function(){
		$('#q').fastSearch({
			url: 'server_response.html'
		});
	});
</script>

##Server response This plugin can work with two types of server response: HTML (default) and JSON.

###HTML HTML response will be shown right under the input element. You can return any code you like.

###JSON JSON response will be shown inside the template. Plugin comes with 4 default templates:

  • templateSimple - simple links
  • templateText - links with descriptions
  • templateWithImageSimple - images with links
  • templateWithImage - images with links and with description First template is default. You can specify the template with rowTemplate parameter, like fastSearch.templateSimple. Response could be any JSON object or array. Plugin will work with the following format:
[
  {
    "text": "text1",
    "link": "link1",
    "comment": "description",
    "image": "http link to image",
    "width":  "width of image to display, in px"
    "height":  "height of image to display, in px"
  },
  {
    "text": "text2",
    "link": "link2",
	"comment": "description",
	"image": "http link to image",
	"width":  "width of image to display, in px"
	"height":  "height of image to display, in px"
  },
  {
    "text": "text3",
    "link": "link3",
	"comment": "description",
	"image": "http link to image",
	"width":  "width of image to display, in px"
	"height":  "height of image to display, in px"
  }
]

If you receive the response in the different format, you can process it with 2 callbacks:

  • processResult will process the root object to return the array of found items
  • processResultRow will process a single row to the needed format.
processResult: function(data){
	...process...
	return data;
},
processResultRow: function(dataRow){
	...process...
	return dataRow;
}

##Options

  • url - string, url to get search result
  • type - request type, get or post
  • dataType - type of received data, html or json
  • rowTemplate - template for the row if using json, properties of the fastSearch object, like fastSearch.templateSimple, or string with HTML code and placeholders marked like %text%
  • onStart - a callback before search starts, inserted query as a parameter
  • onReady - a callback after search ends, with generated html as a parameter
  • processResult - a callback to process the root object to return the array of found items
  • processResultRow a callback process a single row to the needed format
