Search Plugin

This plugin integrates a full-text search for your website. It is based on lunr.js. The development of the first version has been sponsored by vodaris.

Just activate the plugin and it will add a search field to your website (depending on your theme). The plugin does not require any third-party-software like Google Search or Algolia. Instead it includes the JavaScript search library lunr.js and generate a full-text search index on the fly.
