Instant Search and Auto-completion is almost here

Instant search and autocompletion is the gold standard for the web search. There is magic in the feeling of type and get the results immediately. It has been a feature that we always wanted for our directory, and now it is coming in May. Help us to test it!

To implement Instant search, we have partnered with Algolia as our search partner.

Algolia is the single best way to build search into your mobile app or website.
Founded in 2012, Algolia’s mission is to enable every developer & product team to build consumer-grade search. With their hosted search API, developers benefit from the power of a lightning-fast engine with out-of-the-box support for a typo-tolerant, as-you-type search experience.

Right now, the Instant search is enabled on the Live site ONLY for registered users, and the plan is to publish it for everyone in May.

Feel free to test it and give us your feedback, here. To know more about how it is configured, please, visit this Wiki page: JED Search use cases and definitions
