Anyone used material design style contact chips in their ionic apps?

I want to have a typeahead contact search input in my app where selecting a contact results in a contact chip being prepended to the input field, for example:

I can put something together but I just wanted to first check there wasn’t an Ionic component already available for this, and how people are doing this in there apps?



Well I heard that chips is coming to ionic 2

anyone has other alternative for using md chips ?
