Minimal Tagging Input In Pure JavaScript – Tagger


Tagger is a small yet full-featured JavaScript tagging system that enables the user to insert tags into an input field.

How to use it:

To use the tagging system, place the Tagger’s JavaScript and Stylesheet in the HTML document.

<link href="tagger.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="tagger.js"></script>

Create a normal input field for the tagging system.

<input type="text" name="tags" />

Initialize the Tagger on the input field and done.


Determine whether to allow white space in the tags. Default: true.

tagger(document.querySelector('[name="tags"]'), {
  allow_spaces: true

Determine whether to allow duplicate tags. Default: false.

tagger(document.querySelector('[name="tags"]'), {
  allow_duplicates: false

Specify what should be in the href attribute. Default: false.

tagger(document.querySelector('[name="tags"]'), {
  link: function(name) {
    return `javascript:alert('${name}');`;

Add/remove a tag programmatically.
