Select2 – The jQuery replacement for select boxes

Select2 – The jQuery replacement for select boxes

Select2 gives you a customizable select box with support for searching, tagging, remote data sets, infinite scrolling, and many other highly used options.
  • In your language
  • Remote data support
  • Theming
  • Fully extensible
  • Dynamic item creation
  • Full browser support


In order to use Select2, you must include the compiled JavaScript and CSS files on your website. There are multiple options for including these pre-compiled files, also known as a distribution, in your website or application.
Using Select2 from a CDN
A CDN (content delivery network) is the fastest way to get up and running with Select2! Select2 is hosted on both the cdnjs and jsDelivr CDNs. Simply include the following lines of code in the <head> section of your page:
<link href="" rel="stylesheet" /> <script src=""></script>

Single select boxes

Select2 was designed to be a replacement for the standard <select> box that is displayed by the browser. By default it supports all options and operations that are available in a standard select box, but with added flexibility.
<select class="js-example-basic-single" name="state"> 
    <option value="AL">Alabama</option> 
    <option value="WY">Wyoming</option> 
Select2 will register itself as a jQuery function if you use any of the distribution builds, so you can call .select2() on any jQuery selector where you would like to initialize Select2.
// In your Javascript (external .js resource or <script> tag) 
$(document).ready(function() { 
Lazy Load Images for Website Performance

Lazy Load Images for Website Performance

Lazy loading images means loading images on websites asynchronously — that is, after the above-the-fold content is fully loaded, or even conditionally, only when they appear in the browser’s viewport. This means that if users don’t scroll all the way down, images placed at the bottom of the page won’t even be loaded.

Why Should You Care About Lazy Loading Images?

There are at least a couple of excellent reasons why you should consider lazy loading images for your website:
  • If your website uses JavaScript to display content or provide some kind of functionality to users, loading the DOM quickly becomes critical. It’s common for scripts to wait until the DOM has completely loaded before they start running. On a site with a significant number of images, lazy loading — or loading images asynchronously — could make the difference between users staying or leaving your website.
  • Since most lazy loading solutions work by loading images only if the user has scrolled to the location where images would be visible inside the viewport, those images will never be loaded if users never get to that point. This means considerable savings in bandwidth, for which most users, especially those accessing the web on mobile devices and slow-connections, will be thanking you.
<img data-src="image.jpg" alt="test image">
img {
  opacity: 1;
  transition: opacity 0.3s;

img[data-src] {
  opacity: 0;
JavaScript then adds the src attribute to each img element and gives it the value of their respective data-src attributes. Once images have finished loading, the script removes the data-src attribute from img elements altogether:
[]'img[data-src]'),    function(img) {
  img.setAttribute('src', img.getAttribute('data-src'));
  img.onload = function() {

Responsive reCAPTCHA

Responsive reCAPTCHA

The new reCAPTCHA is here. A significant number of your users can now attest they are human without having to solve a CAPTCHA. Instead with just a single click they’ll confirm they are not a robot. We’re calling it the No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA experience.


// Resize reCAPTCHA to fit width of container
// Since it has a fixed width, we're scaling
// using CSS3 transforms
// ------------------------------------------
// captchaScale = containerWidth / elementWidth

function scaleCaptcha(elementWidth) {
  // Width of the reCAPTCHA element, in pixels
  var reCaptchaWidth = 304;
  // Get the containing element's width
	var containerWidth = $('.container').width();
  // Only scale the reCAPTCHA if it won't fit
  // inside the container
  if(reCaptchaWidth > containerWidth) {
    // Calculate the scale
    var captchaScale = containerWidth / reCaptchaWidth;
    // Apply the transformation

$(function() { 
  // Initialize scaling
  // Update scaling on window resize
  // Uses jQuery throttle plugin to limit strain on the browser
  $(window).resize( $.throttle( 100, scaleCaptcha ) );


.g-recaptcha {
  transform-origin: left top;
  -webkit-transform-origin: left top;
Differences Between Bootstrap 3 and 4

Differences Between Bootstrap 3 and 4

Bootstrap 4 brought some major changes, adding new components, scrapping others. Here's the difference between Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 4.
Component Bootstrap 3 Bootstrap 4
Source CSS Files LESS SCSS
Primary CSS Unit px rem
Media Queries Unit px px
Global Font Size 14px 16px
Default Fonts Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif Uses a "native font stack" (user's system fonts), with a fallback to Helvetica Neue, Arial, and sans-serif
Grid Tiers 4 tier grid system (xs, sm, md, lg) 5 tier grid system (xs, sm, md, lg, xl).
Offsetting Columns Uses col-*-offset-* classes to offset columns. For example, col-md-offset-4. Uses offset-*-* classes to offset columns. For example, offset-md-4.
Inverse Tables Not supported. Added inverse tables with the .table-inverse class.
Table Head Styles Not supported. Added table head styles with the .thead-default and .thead-inverse classes.
Condensed Tables .table-condensed .table-sm
Contextual Classes Bootstrap 3 doesn't use the .table- prefix for its contextual classes. For example, Bootstrap 3 uses .active whereas Bootstrap 4 uses .table-active. Other than that, both versions use the same 5 contextual keywords (active, success, info, warning, danger). Added the .table- prefix for its contextual classes.
Responsive Tables The .table-responsive class must be added to a parent div element. Can add .table-responsive to the actual table element.
Reflow Tables Not supported. Added reflow tables with the .table-reflow class. Reflow tables have now been dropped.
Horizontal Forms Horizontal forms require the .form-horizontal class. Forms don't require .row when using grids (although this class is still a requirement on Bootstrap 3 grids in general). Bootstrap 4 dropped the .form-horizontal class — it is no longer needed to display horizontal forms. Forms require the .row class when using grids.
Use .control-label when using grids for form layout. Bootstrap 4 uses .col-form-label * when using grids for form layout. * Note that Bootstrap 4 initially used .form-control-label but subesquently changed this to .col-form-label.
Checkboxes and Radio Buttons Uses .radio, .radio-inline, .checkbox, or .checkbox-inline to display checkboxes and radio buttons. Uses .form-check, .form-check-label, .form-check-input, and .form-check-inline.
Form Control Size Use .input-lg and .input-sm to increase or decrease the size of an input control. Use .form-control-lg and .form-control-sm to increase or decrease the size of an input control.
Help Text Use the .help-block class to display help text. Bootstrap 4 uses the .form-text class to display help text. Bootstrap 4 forms don't have an official class for help text. Instead, the .text-muted class was introduced for more flexibility.
Validation and Feedback Icons Includes validation styles for error, warning, and success states on form controls (for example, .has-warning). To present icons on the input fields using Bootstrap 3, use glyphicons. Validation styles are not available for Bootstrap 4 forms. Use custom Bootstrap form validation messages instead.
Legends No classes for styling the form legends. Provides the option of using .col-form-legend on legend elements to style it more like a label.
Custom Forms Not supported. Bootstrap 4 introduced custom forms — completely custom form elements that replace the browser defaults.
Styles Includes the .btn-default and .btn-info classes. The .btn-secondary class isn't available in Bootstrap 3. Introduced the .btn-secondary, .btn-light, and .btn-dark classes. Dropped the .btn-default class. Note that the .btn-info class was initially dropped in Bootstrap 4 but then reappeared again.
Outline Buttons Not supported. Introduced the .btn-outline-* classes for styling buttons with an outline color. Introduced the .btn-*-outline classes for styling buttons with an outline color. (The .btn-*-outline classes became .btn-outline-* in Alpha 3).
Button Sizes The .btn-xs class is available. Dropped the .btn-xs class (only .btn-sm and .btn-lg are available now).
Responsive Images Use .img-responsive class. Use .img-fluid class.
Image Alignment Use .pull-right, .pull-left, and .center-block helper classes. Uses .m-x-auto instead of .center-block to align block-level images. Can also use the various .pull-*-right and .pull-*-left responsive helper classes, as well as the .text-*-left, .text-*-center, and .text-*-right helper classes on the image's parent. Can use the various .pull-*-none classes to disable floating.
Media Objects
Classes Includes many different classes for media objects, including .media, .media-body .media-object, .media-heading, .media-right, .media-left, and .media-list and .media-body. Uses just .media class. Margins can be applied using spacer utilities. Media objects are flexbox enabled in Bootstrap 4, so the various flexbox classes can also be applied (such as reordering, etc).
Structure Apply dropdowns to lists (i.e. using ul and li). Dropdowns can be built with ul or divs. Apply the .dropdown-item to a a or button element and wrap them all in a div (or ul) with a .dropdown-menu class applied.
Menu Headers Apply .dropdown-header to the li tag. Apply .dropdown-header to h1 - h2 tags (as Bootstrap no longer uses li tags to build dropdowns).
Dividers Apply the .divider class to the li element (because it used lists to build dropdowns). Apply the .dropdown-divider to the div element.
Disabled Menu Items Apply the .disabled class to the li element. Apply the .disabled class to the a element.
Button Groups
Justified? Supports justified button groups (via the .btn-group-justified class). Not supported.
Extra Small? Supports extra small button groups (via the .btn-group-xs class). Not supported (dropped the .btn-group-xs class).
Inline Navs There is no .nav-inline class. Can use the .nav-inline class to explicitly specify navs to be displayed inline.
Colors Limited (preset) color options. Supports inverse navbars but not the other classes. New (preset) color options. Introduced the .navbar-light and the .navbar-dark classes, and allows the .bg-* classes to be used on navbars.
Navbar Alignment Use .navbar-right, .navbar-left to align components within the navbar. Use the various .pull-*-right and .pull-*-left responsive helper classes. Can also use the various .pull-*-none classes to disable floating. Can either use spacing utilities such as .mr-auto, or any of the flexbox alignment utilities.
Navbar Forms Add the .navbar-form class to forms within navbars. Bootstrap 4 dropped the .navbar-form class. It's no longer necessary.
Fixed Navbars Uses .navbar-fixed-top and .navbar-fixed-bottom to fix navbars to the top or bottom. Uses .fixed-top and .fixed-bottom.
Default Pagination Only requires .pagination to be added (to the ul element that represents the list of pages). Must also add .page-item to each li element and .page-link to each a element.
Pagers Uses .previous and .next for aligning pagers. Pagers have been dropped in Bootstrap 4 (Alpha 3). Uses .pager-prev and .pager-next for aligning pagers.
Pill Labels The .label-pill class is not available. However, Bootstrap 3 does have badges (which achieves a similar visual effect). Labels have been replaced by badges in Bootstrap 4. Badges can use the .badge-pill for rounded corners.
Supported? No. "Tags" are called "Labels" in Bootstrap 3 (i.e. they use the .label class). Yes. The .tag class was introduced in Bootstrap 4 (Alpha 3) to replace the .label class. This was done to disambiguate from the label element. Tags have now been renamed to "badges". These replace labels from Bootstrap 3.
Full-Width The .jumbotron-fluid class is not required on full-width jumbotrons. Introduced the .jumbotron-fluid class for full-width jumbotrons.
Progress Bars
Uses progress? Doesn't use the progress for progress bars. Instead, applies progress bar classes to nested div elements. Uses the HTML5 progress element when working with progress bars. Using the progress element was abandoned in Alpha 6. Bootstrap 4 now uses the div element again.
Supported? Supported. Not supported.
Blockquotes Bootstrap styles are applied to the blockquote element by default. Introduced the .blockquote class for styling the blockquote element (i.e. styling this element is now opt-in).
Blockquote Alignment Use .blockquote-reverse to align a blockquote to the right. Use the text utilities to align blockquotes (.text-center and .text-right).
Page Headers The .page-header class is supported. The .page-header class is not supported.
Description Lists The .dl-horizontal class was used to declare a horizontal list. Horizontal lists are now declared with the .row class on the dl tag, then any of the grid system's predefined classes to the dt and dd tags.
Non-Responsive Usage
Supported? Supported. You can specify a layout to be non-responsive. Not supported.
List Groups
Linked List Items / Button List Items Apply .list-group-item to the a element. Apply .list-group-item-action to the a element.
Show content Uses .in to have content expanded upon page load. Uses .show to have content expanded upon page load.
Supported? Not supported. Introduced in Bootstrap 4. Cards replace functionality that was previously provided by panels, wells, and thumbnails.
Supported? Supported. Not supported. Use cards instead.
Supported? Supported. Not supported. Use cards instead.
Supported? Supported. Not supported. Use cards instead.
Classes Uses the .breadcrumb class against the ul tag. Also requires .breadcrumb-item to be applied against all li elements that make up the breadcrumb. Breadcrumbs can also be used outside of lists. For example, the .breadcrumb-item could be applied to a bunch of a elements that are wrapped in a .breadcrumb element.
Carousel Item Use .item class. Use .carousel-item class.
Supported? Yes. No.
