“Command + F.”
That function has become a larger part of my life than I care to admit. But it’s true.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy getting lost in the infinite abyss of digital content, but when I know exactly what I want, I don’t enjoy spending hours finding it. Hell, even minutes feel too long.
And while “Command + F” is great for searching pages, what if I’m searching an entire site? Or better yet, an entire static site like Hugo?
Today we'll be looking at how a static site search feature can be integrated into your JAMstack site via plugins or 3rd-parties. We’ll be doing this with Algolia’s DocSearch, a killer software that makes adding search to your technical documentation ridiculously easy no matter what SSG you’re using.More specifically, in this post, we’ll cover:
- Choosing a static site generator
- What is Algolia?
- Static site search with DocSearch
- DocSearch and the JAMstack
- Building our Hugo demo with a static site search feature
Let's dive in!
