SharePoint 2013 search users/group auto complete with presence

Recently my client ask me to update the SharePoint 2013 search box to display the user/group with presence. Also on selection of user it should redirected to user profile page. I came up with SPSearchUserAutocomplete plugin to search user.

  • Redirect to Profile page on selection [optional]
  • Show user picture with presence [optional]


  • SharePoint 2013
  • jQuery 1.8.x +
  • jQuery UI JS 1.10.x
  • jQuery UI CSS 1.10.x

e.g.  http://PROFILE_URL/person.aspx?accountname=NETWOR_ID
