Instant search is an enhancement that shows search results as you type.

It works as follows:
The url for the instant is at /instant
The user types his search word, once he finishes typing (javascript keyup) the module automatically submits the search word and returns the search results.
The search results are displayed at the same page of the instant search.

Instant search is also integrated with Top searches module. if Top searches module exists, the instant search auto-completes top search words.

Future Plans

  • Fully integrate with search module (i.e., that each search box will be instant)
  • Integrate with apache_solr search
