Framework Agnostic Accessible Input Masking Library


input-mask.js enables you to include a mask on any input where a specific data input format is required. The placeholder text stays in place, and displays the characters that still need to be included. The placeholder is a customizable CSS.

The user can enter letters and numbers. All other characters, such as spaces, dashes, and parentheses are automatically added by the script, making data entry easier when using dynamic keyboards.
