26 - Full Text Search for Publishing


Enable full text search for Next Publishing

Desired properties:

  • re-use our lookup engine (fuse) 1 to also do full text search
  • full text search should be done client side (with option to change to server side in the future - aka this should be pluggable)
  • ideally, we can construct search index at build time vs run time
  • full text search should not block or slow down initial page load
  • if full text search is not ready, should show progress indicator in search bar


Next Publishing currently does not have full text search


Open Questions

  • should we use lookup to do both full text search and hierarchy lookup (current implementation in 11ty) or do we want to do something different?





  1. Client side full text search using fuse.js and is described here˄
