Facebook Twitter Like @mention jQuery UI Component: mentionsInput
jquery.mentionsInput is a small, but awesome UI component that allows you to “@mention” someone in a text message, just like you are used to on Facebook or Twitter.
jquery.mentionsInput does have a number of extra configuration options which you may change to customise the way it behaves.
jquery.mentionsInput is written as a jQuery extension, so it naturally requires jQuery. In addition to jQuery, it also depends on underscore.js, which is used to simplify stuff a bit.
The component is also using the new HTML5 “input” event. This means older browsers like IE8 need a polyfill which emulates the event (it is bundled).
