I’m trying to decide which I like better:
Search on keyup:
Project Link - http://codepen.io/lacyjpr/pen/pEaQEE
or Search on submit:
Project Link - http://codepen.io/lacyjpr/pen/ozGJVp
Search on keyup is lively and gives the user some feedback that the site is working. It also lets the user know they can stop adding search terms if they find what they’re looking for.
It also pauses when the internet lags and causes an error when you delete a search because the api doesn’t like the backspace key.
What do you think?
