API Documentation

Here's a list of the props available:

  • label: Displays a label, has to be String can be ignored
  • name: Required. usually the field name.
  • classes: Allows you to add classes to the field. String or Array.
  • regex: A RegExp. Validates every tag and disallow adding if not matching. By default it's alphanumerical only (/^[a-zA-Z0-9]*$/)
  • regexError: The error displayed when the Regex doesn't match

Style

The component philosophy is pretty straightforward here: only the mandatory style is bundled.
I personally never liked js library that needs too much CSS.
Only 26 lines of CSS here 😉.
But you can easily stylize the component.

Have an example template:

<div class="field tag-selector">
  <label for="tags">Post tags</label>
  <div class="tag-selector--input">
      <div class="tag-selector--item">
        Dogs <i class="icon tag-selector--remove">delete_icon</i>
      </div>
      <div class="tag-selector--item">
        Cats <i class="icon tag-selector--remove">delete_icon</i>
      </div>
      <div class="tag-selector--item">
        Horses <i class="icon tag-selector--remove">delete_icon</i>
      </div>
    <input type="text" id="tags" name="tags" class="tag-selector-input">
  </div>
  <p class="validation-message">The tag you entered is at the wrong format. Please only use alphanumerical characters.</p>
</div>

One rule tho, .tag-selector--input has to be display: flex;.
