Commit 7543e33 removed attribute autocomplete="off" on input

See original GitHub issue


I just switched to this fork and I notice that the attribute autocomplete="off" isn’t added anymore to the input field since commit 7543e33. As a consequence I get the browser suggestions on top of the ones provided by this library.

I cannot find any open issues about that so I’m probably missing something but I can’t figure out what.

What’s the status of this? I can’t see a reason why anyone would ever want the browser to popup a built-in autocomplete list on a typeahead input. Doesn’t that defeat the whole point? There’s a whole can of worms started by the Chrome developers regarding not respecting the autocomplete="off" directive in certain scenarios, but that’s no reason to remove it from the typeahead codebase.

If I manually add it back then it works to prevent the browser’s autocomplete list from obscuring the typeahead suggestions, so I’m not sure why it hasn’t been added back. Are we just supposed to add it ourselves at this point? Sorry for the barrage of questions; I’m just not sure why this issue hasn’t had activity since 6 months ago and it appears autocomplete="off" is still not present in the codebase.
