Mention

Version Downloads

Honestly, the mention node is amazing. It adds support for @mentions, for example to ping users, and provides full control over the rendering.

Literally everything can be customized. You can pass a custom component for the rendering. All examples use .filter() to search through items, but feel free to send async queries to an API or add a more advanced library like fuse.js to your project.

Installation

# with npm
npm install @tiptap/extension-mention

# with Yarn
yarn add @tiptap/extension-mention

Dependencies

To place the popups correctly, we’re using tippy.js in all our examples. You are free to bring your own library, but if you’re fine with it, just install what we use:

# with npm
npm install tippy.js

# with Yarn
yarn add tippy.js

Settings
