The recommendation and suggestion system has been for a long time. A special focus has been turned towards them to improve the performance. From an android keyboard to e-commerce sites suggestions make things easy increasing the user experience. On top of that they are also one of the pillars for success since users don’t need to rely on external source.

You will have to stick with us till the end to find out which will work best for you.

I wish I could autocomplete my sentence right here. However, there are some examples I would like you to see below before that.
1. React Autosuggest
The mobile friendly react autosuggest is a WAI-ARIA compliant which supports ARIA attributes and keyboard interaction. The react built component is highly customizable so that you can create autosuggest as per your custom requirement. These may include multiple sections and other.
Among the 4 types of native autocomplete in this react example, the first one is a basic suggestion layout showing all similar result without any category or type specification. Another one is multiple section with similar results showing as per their category which maybe in terms of date, album in case of music query and so on. Maybe you want a better UI with images and icons then apply your own style. Also long list appears in a scrollable manner.
2. React typeahead component
Mind your search history in YouTube or Netflix because this react native autocomplete component got no chill. The react library uses API from YouTube and Netflix to render suggestions on the basis of your video and show preferences.
Most of us including me might have a Google search bar as a widget in our phone’s home screen. How about a similar one for YouTube and Netflix? In fact, video streaming service is in rise these days and with these textarea widget made from react we can get autocomplete result and directly go to our favorite show. This little gap that react autocomplete textarea fills can be a matter of listening a spoiler or telling a spoiler.

4. React Places Autocomplete
The library uses Google Maps Places Library along with providing full control on render to integrate with other libraries. Being an autosuggest you don’t have to depend on search button to see if you go correct input or not. With the feature of asynchronous google script loading your result is already there before you finish query.
You can create an enhanced user experience with both autosuggest and dropdown feature from downshift. Not only autosuggest or dropdown but you can also create select or combobox component as bonus.
The component that you will be getting are flexible and simple to use which maybe exactly what you were looking while searching for the autosuggest component.
6. React Tags
With react tags your application will support selection of multiple tags along with autosuggest for making things easy. I remember when I was working on my college project and I needed multiple time clock selection while giving option to users to easily cancel the selection. After few days of here and there working on both frontend and backend I finally got the solution. How I wish that I knew about this library tool back then so that I could focus on something more amazing.
Besides tag selection from suggestion we can also rearrange the ones already selected. All of these just from a simple library import.
7. React textarea autocomplete
Going a bit extra lets go beyond just autosuggestion for searching action lets see the implementation that all modern keyboards provide. The chemistry between two can be clearly seen when one completes the sentence of another. That’s why mobile phones are so important today. You don’t have to wait on words to come, just type few alphabets and let the library do the rest.
The render function involves easy inclusion of emoji. Conversation is not complete without emojis these days and you should consider an easy way to include them. Just like react autocomplete textarea we have here.
8. Tokeninput component for React
How easy gmail has made it for us by with autosuggest for email contacts. You can achieve the same for your application with autosuggest on similar contacts along with multiple selection. It would be headache of next level if it wasn’t for gmail to think that same mail maybe for multiple people. Moreover, imagine an email marketing campaign with thousands of potential clients and you can’t send it in bulk. Now take a deep breath and feel relieved since that’s not the case.
9. React Autocomplete
When your application is dealing with small volume of data then you may see the suggestions instantly. However, it becomes an issue when there’s a ton of data to work with. By including a loading animation you can keep hold of even impatient users. Atleast feeling of things are being processed is better than no interaction at all.

11. Autocomplete in React
The advantage is that if you know exactly what you are looking for then you can easily work with autosuggest. However, if you have no basis to work with dropdown still gives you a option to make things work.
12. React Filter Box
In one of my native college projects I worked on search functionality (without react autocomplete though) by including different textarea for different tuples but wasn’t sure whether I should use OR logic or AND logic. Since some users maybe quite unsure what they are looking for they would prefer OR logic. However, some users might be looking for more accurate result by applying AND logic between multiple components. If I had the option for this react filter box I wouldn’t have to choose between user types. I could easily include both.
The filter box works like a normal SQL query but you don’t need to master that skill in order to use it. This is because the text area has autocomplete feature to support your search query. These suggestions will be provided on the basis of preceding selection so that you don’t have to worry about accuracy.
13. Autocomplete ReactJS
Animation goes very well with asynchronous loading option. Since you’re not reloading the content you may not even have any idea that you’ll get any result. As we said earlier loading animation is a great solution to that. However, you don’t have to stick with only traditional loaders since you can make a custom one to attract user’s attention even during waiting period.
For developers and designers with this react autocomplete you can make an agnostic component independent of any flux implementation or implement it to gain full control on autocomplete.
14. React Autocompleted
Here you’ll see a react component which is based on container component design. This shows a list of suggestions from input file for every key up action.
Some kind of tutorial is always helpful for users. However, shifting focus towards a separate tutorial can be extremely expensive. You also can’t expect a separate video tutorial for a simple search option. Just an addition of placeholder reflecting on examples of query can be helpful for this scenario.
15. React Email Autocomplete
Our previous post on form components we discussed on how forms should be intelligent, user friendly and should look towards accepting only correct format. While email validation was one of the part that we covered, email autocomplete is a feature that should come before it. Application focus shouldn’t be on just whether user input was correct or not but before that it should be intend to show correct format to users. Just an @ sign and a number of popular email service providers show up making things easy.
