→ Selectize is looking for new members on the maintenance team!
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.

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
Selectize is available at cdnjs.

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
