  • Last Updated : 14 May, 2020

jQuery provides Tagsort plugin that is used for displaying tags or filter elements based on different tags in a DOM. The plugin takes data-attributes of HTML page structure and dynamically creates user-friendly tags used for filtering elements. The filteration of elements are done in many ways that are handled in options setting feature provided by the tagsort plugin.

Note: Please download the following library files from Tagsort plugin and save it in your working folder to include in your codes. Please download “jquery-3.2.1.min.js” file from this link.

<script src=”jquery-3.2.1.min.js”></script>
<script src=”tagsort.min.js”></script>

Output :

Example 2: The following example demonstrates the options setting feature provided by the tagsort plugin using javascript. The option itemTagsView is set to ‘.item-tags’ so that all the different tags of “data-item-tags” are displayed in the “p” element of class “item-tags” as shown in the output image. The programmer can make use of other options depending on the application’s requirement.
