I think this question has come up before, but I was wondering if there was 
anyone has a working Wikidata Suggest widget of some kind that works similarly 
to Freebase Suggest which has finally been turned off completely:


I've been using Freebase entities in the past to provide some measure of data 
normalization, and am in the middle of converting my entities over to Wikidata. 
The specific application is a jobs board that needs to control the names for 
Organizations, Subjects and Locations [1,2].

I need to create suggest like functionality in the application and was 
wondering if anyone else had done anything like a Freebase Suggest already. If 
this is a gap area I was thinking of creating a React component that uses the 
Wikidata SPARQL endpoint [3] which I was pleased to see already supports CORS. 
But I'm not married to React, so if someone has another JavaScript library that 
does this I'd love to hear from you.
