<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>Redactor X</title>
        <meta charset="utf-8">

        <!-- css -->
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="/your-folder/redactorx.css" />
        <!-- element -->
        <textarea id="entry">...</textarea>

        <!-- js -->
        <script src="/your-folder/redactorx.js"></script>
        <script src="/your-folder/plugins/handle.js"></script>

        <!-- call -->
        RedactorX('#entry', {
            plugins: ['handle'],
            handle: {
                url: '/your-folder/handle-script/'


The handle script receives a POST variable handle and must return JSON data such as:

    "alex": {
        "item": "Alex", // any text or HTML that will be displayed as a list item in the inline dropdown
        "replacement": "<a href="/users/alex/">@alex</a>" // any HTML that will replace the trigger text
    "john": {
        "item": "John",
        "replacement": "<a href="/users/john/">@john</a>"

If there are no results, the handle script should return an empty response.

Handle plugin has additional optional settings:

handle: {
    url: '/your-folder/handle-script/',
    start: 2, start point (1 - by default)
    trigger: '#' // start trigger (@ - by default)
