Autocomplete is to look for the matches of a given query and show them as a list of suggestions for the query. As the name suggests, an autocompleting algorithm tries to automatically complete a given query.
This has a couple of benefits. Firstly, it reduces the amount of time spent in entering a given value - we type in a query, a list of suggestions is consequently shown, we select one suggestion from it, and we are done. Secondly, it improves the UX of a webpage by making it look professional and performant.
Big names out there - such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon - employ the use of autocompletion algorithms in their search bases to make their applications robust and allow for quicker option selection. Apart from these big names, autocompletion is now a general feature of the web.
Many libraries have been developed to power it on webpages, and many new dimensions have been given to it to make it even more powerful.
In this course you'll learn:
- How to code one of the most used features of the web, from scratch.
- The way to approach programming problems by breaking them down into smaller subproblems, solving the subproblems and then combining the solutions to these subproblems to solve the main problem.
- How to efficiently work with functions where code blocks are seen to be repeating.
... and much more.

In this single unit we'll cover all about autocompletion. We'll start with a skeletal autocompleter and then successively improvise it with adding a subfeature to it. These subfeatures include arrow navigation, sorting, grouping, highlighting and much more.
