I come back today to share a new javascript plugin I made : Z-TAGS

This is a little javascript system allowing you to quickly create tags sections with options.


It is written with OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) style and fully usable once you included the javascript file in your html. You don’t need any other library like jQuery …

The parameters

  • element : the DOM element that will be transformed in a tag section
  • options : (all optional)
    • predefined : the default tags to be inserted on the tags section creation
    • readonly : if true, you won’t be able to add or delete the tags
    • pattern : the array of available tags
    • color : the (CSS written) color for the background of each tag

Very easy-to-use plugin !!!

The only thing you have to do for each element of the DOM meant to become a tag area, is to create a new instance of the ZTAGS class and passing it options if necessary.

For example:

I want an empty tag area where I can add & delete tags
I want it to accept only [“hello”, “world”] as tags labels
The tags must be blue

var elem = document.getElementById("#my-element");
var newTagArea = new ZTAGS({
element: elem,
options: {
readonly: false,
pattern: ["hello", "world"],
color: "#3366EE"
