Tutorial for Chosen or Select2 jQuery plugin

It would be nice if Treehouse had a tutorial on implementing the Chosen or Select2 jQuery plugin for a rails app, including an explanation of the differences between the two choices.

Hi Kyle Daugherty,

Thanks for the suggestion! This topic is a little bit specific, but it might be good to include these plugins in one of our upcoming projects, or better yet, create a Workshop that just focuses on some of the best jQuery plugins.
