Search for Ghost


#1

Currently Ghost doesn’t have a search functionality, and search functionality is expected out of the box from most of the users. At least the ones I encounter. I use the GhostHunter plugin for my projects but it is not ideal as it only supports English.

Any ideas and solutions are welcome.

Best solution is generally Algolia, but it’s a bit manual and experimental atm:

Thank you, @John, I will have a look.

Another great integration for Ghost search would be Apache Solr, very powerful and open source. See e.g. Google chooses Solr for Public Service Website Search.

As a code example at GitHub, see the Solr integration for the NodeBB next-generation forums, wich are based on Node.js like Ghost.
