sfTypeahead: A Twitter Typeahead directive

Build Status Coverage: 100% Version dependencies Status

A simple Angular.js directive wrapper around the Twitter Typeahead library.

Getting Started

Get angular-typeahead from your favorite source:

Note: angular-typeahead supports Angular.js v1.2.x through v1.5.x and depends on typeahead.js v0.11.x. Make sure dependencies are met in your setup:

  • global: include jQuery, angularjs and typeahead.js before angular-typeahead.js.
  • commonJS (node, browserify): angular-typeahead explicitly requires
    . (note: with browserify, include jquery.js and typeahead.js externally, because angular does not define a dependency on jquery)
  • amd (require.js): angular-typeahead explicitly requires
    and declares itself as
    . Note that
    does not work well with AMD.js, you may find this workaround useful.

Please feel free to add any issues to the GitHub issue tracker.

Contributions are welcome but please try to adhere to the folowing guidelines:


Any code you write should be tested. Test the "happy path" as well as corner cases. Code cannot be merged in master unless it achieves 100% coverage on everything. To run tests automatically when a file changes, run

npm run watch

Tests run in Chrome by default, but you can override this by setting the

environment variable. Example:
KARMA_BROWSER=Firefox npm run watch
KARMA_BROWSER=PhantomJS npm run watch

If you are not sure how to test something, ask about it in your pull request description.


I recommend you use a jshint plugin in your editor, this will help you spot errors faster and make it easier to write clean code that is going to pass QA. In any case,

npm run watch
runs jshint on the code whenever you save.
