Javascript Question

jQuery UI autocomplete doesn't work on deployed application but works on localhost

I have one problem that I can't understand. I've built many web applications under jQuery UI and with jQuery UI Autocomplete plugin

$("#autocompleteObchod").autocomplete({
source: function( request, response ) {
console.log('ok');
$.ajax({
url: "/eshops/default/search",
dataType: "json",
data: {
q: request.term
},
success: function( data ) {
response($.map(data, function (item) {
return {
label: item.name,
value: item.name,
id: item.uuid
};
}));
}
} );
},
minLength: 2,
select: function( event, ui ) {
$('#form-eshopId').val(ui.item.id);
}
} );


This code works on my localhost.

But when I deploy my application via Dokku (heroku), autocomplete wont work. Nothing. No event triggered, no error in console, no error with javascript. Nothing. Do you guys had similar problem ? I'm out of energy with this.

If you want to check my application check http://dev.dobravec.info/organizations/
And try search something at first inline search component.

Search component

Answer

You have something wrong with you jquery ui version. First of all I tried to debug the code of your autocomplete code version. It never fires out because it never receives arguments from you. For script your call is like calling autocomplete({}) - does nothing.

What the hell I thought - somebody broke autocomplete?

I went to jquery ui cdn, copied autocomplete function and pasted it to console. And initialized autocomplete on your input again. And it works fine.

enter image description here

So I dont know why, I dont know who - but somebody has edited your version of autocomplete. Get the new one and enjoy.

Try for yourself:

First ctrl+v jquery ui autocomplete function to console:
