Create a tag picker like StackOverflow

Tag Picker

Auto-complete like a boss!

See the JSFiddle for an example of the CSS, JavaScript and HTML you need to make it work.

The only dependency is Ramda to give the JavaScript code a more functional flavor.

You may see $ and think that jQuery is a dependency, but I can assure you that all DOM operations are native:

  const $ = document.querySelectorAll.bind(document);

I decided to use DocumentFragment objects to attach raw elements to the DOM. With such a small amount of data here, it is not necessary, but depending on how big your data set is, it could be crucial later.

Note: I only tested this in JSFiddle in the Chrome browser. Use at your own peril! I did include a commented out MIT license in the JavaScript, so use or modify however you like.
