Lately, working with Livewire has given me the same kind of joy I had when I first discovered VueJs. I feel like it unlocks so many possibilities.
Today, I decided to share this joy with you all. I just hit record and built a search/select dropdown UI component (like vue-select or select2). I was pretty surprised how easy it was to accomplish this kind of thing, and I think it's a totally viable alternative to wrestling with JS plugins.
I had a bunch of fun doing it, enjoy!
