So I’ve started work on Typecast. I call it an Input Field Augmentation Library. The idea is to provide commonly used/desired functionality that isn’t available in the plain’ol HTML input field. Some examples include auto-completion, suggestion and realtime masking. I’ve been working on it for less than a week–in my free time–so it’s very much “in development” though the auto-complete/suggest functionality is pretty close to being done. There are of course a bunch of things I want to add (see the todo list on the Typecast page). Oh and for all you tech-heads out there, it’s completely unobtrusive and fully OO. I also try and optimize the code as much as possible to keep the performance level decent.
If you’re reading this, I’d like your feedback. Please, go mess around with it. Copy it, use it, try and break it. Let me know what you think and what you’d like to see.
