A Greasemonkey extension that adds tag auto-complete capabilities to the traditional del.icio.us posting areas. This is a powerful extension which can greatly increase your del.icio.us posting speed. I’ve spent some time playing around with it, thus far, and it’s been helping me out significantly.
The premise behind this extension is that it goes through your existing ‘Post’ page, takes the tag data from within the page and gives you auto-completion capabilites of it. This is how the current interfaces are supported:
- The traditional posting interface (Screenshot) is fully supported. Additionally, the tags are also sorted by popularity.
- The ‘experimental’ interface (Screenshot) is supported, but tag results are sorted alphabetically.
- The popup posting interface is currently not supported as it does not contain any tag data.
- Tag Auto-Completion
- Sorting by popularity (Traditional interface only).
- Tags can be completed using the right arrow, tab, enter, or escape keys.
- To view alternate tag suggestions, hit the ‘up’ or ‘down’ arrow.
- Will only complete the last tag being entered (not tags in the middle of the text area).
- Sometimes if you type really fast it will complete the tag automatically.
- Version 3 (2005-03-27): Any non-space character is valid in a tag.
- Version 2 (2005-03-26): Is now capitalization agnostic. You can type in both upper and lower case and auto-complete words which are both upper and lower case.
- Version 1 (2005-03-25): Initial release.
- autodelicious.user.js (Right-click that link and select ‘Install User Script…’) – This extension needs Firefox and the GreaseMonkey extension to run.

Would it be possible to make your script allow for upper-case letters too? At the moment it forces everything to lower-case. There are many users on delicious who use upper-case tags, hey.
John Resig (April 13, 2005 at 11:59 pm)
Peter – Thanks!
Scott – The most recent version supports upper-case characters, or should, at least. I’ve tested it out and it seems to work ok. Try out Version 3 and let me know if you still have any problems.

Okay, I’m updating now and I’ll give it a fly.

Brilliant, John. This is great work. Thanks for making this.

There appears to be a difference between the handling of uppercase and lowercase tags. When using uppercase tags, the word is auto-completed, but the auto-completed part of the word is not selected (as it is when typing lowercase tags). Thus if the first tag the script provides is not the desired script, you need to delete the added letters and retype the correct ones.

Jive: That’s no good, are you using the latest version? (Version 3) If so, what interface are you using? (I’m just trying to duplicate your problems)
Jive (May 2, 2005 at 12:11 am)
Yep, using version 3 and the experimental post to del.icio.us bookmarklet.

Another problem is using the tab to go to the “save” button, one has to click :/
Perhaps modify it to make the tab act normally if no word needs an autocompletion :?

Is a similar script available for spurl.net ?
steve ulrich (June 6, 2005 at 8:14 am)
very handy. you can make it work with the pop-up by removing the noui=yes option in the popup url that’s defined on the del.icio.us site. a minor nit, but shift-tab doesn’t let you jump back a field, and the need to click on the submit button when there are no tags pending completion.
very handy stuff though. many thanks.
Jacob Rask (June 7, 2005 at 4:53 pm)
Looks like most (all?) of these features are now implemented in the experimental bookmarklet.
John Resig (June 7, 2005 at 9:47 pm)
Jacob: It does look that way, I’ve been using the new posting interface and am loving it. Oh well, the application had a good run, though.

This seems strange: just a while back, when posting to my del.icio.us links using the “Popup Post” Firefox plugin, the “tags” field tried to auto-complete the text I was entering. For example, when bookmarking this link, I typed in “voicexml…
