Does anyone know the best way to go about using jquery autocomplete or bootstrap typeahead with a database in October CMS. I've never really worked with a framework or cms before, so I'm still learning how to go about this sort of thing. I can do it using an array in javascript, but I don't know how to get the php output from my plugin to the code for handling the typeahead.

To grab your data from the database, you can use an Eloquent query from either a component or the PHP section of a page or partial. Eloquent has some handy helper methods to help you pass data to your javascript, specifically you might want to use the toJson() method.

Thanks! I'll have to get more familiar with Eloquent and how to use it in OctoberCMS.
