Shiny Searchbar - An Input Widget for Highlighting Text and More

Add a searchbar widget to your 'Shiny' application. The widget quickly integrates with any existing element containing text to highlight matches. Highlighting is done with the 'JavaScript' library 'mark.js'. The widget includes buttons to cycle through multiple instances of the match and automatically scroll to the matches in an overflow element (or window). The widget also displays the total number of matches and which match is currently being cycled through. The widget is structured as a 'Bootstrap 3' input group.
