Bootstrap's Typeahead plugin extended (allowing for AJAX functionality) among other things
View README.markdown

This is a fork of Bootstrap Typeahead that adds minimal but powerful extensions.

For example, process typeahead list asynchronously and return objects

  # This example does an AJAX lookup and is in CoffeeScript
    # source can be a function
    source: (typeahead, query) ->
      # this function receives the typeahead object and the query string
