Description

Clickable prototypes: Search and Filtering

As a user, I would like to search in a Flow board for keywords, so I can find topics and posts that include terms I'm interested in.
The idea is to provide an integrated bar where search, browsing (ToC), and filtering are supported.

A couple of prototypes (search and filtering) are available to try the basic idea, although the designs have been iterated and a more precise description of how things are expected to work is provided below. Check initial announcement and feedback on the mailing list for more context.

T89422: Turn ToC bar into a Search/ToC bar (Search)




T89785: Highlight search results on the current Flow board (Search)

T99791: Show an overview of all matches found in a Flow board

T99782: Navigate through results when searching a Flow board

T99786: Show matching topics when searching a Flow board

T89786: Clear search box (Search)

T89787: "No results found" error handling for Flow search


T99881: Loading indicator for search in Flow boards

T99785: Show richer info on Flow topics at the Table of Contents

T90471: Filtering options integrated with new search/TOC





T99878: Communicate that content on a flow board has been filtered

T99875: Advanced filtering on a Flow board (advanced search panel)

T99880: Auto-complete filters from search bar in Flow

Now that browse topics moves to the side, how does that effect the ToC rendering? When you click Browse topics, is the ToC still full with? When the ToC is collapsed, does it still update its caption to match the currently-on-top topic title as you scroll down the board?

If search on a board is implemented, we should also consider to have T132817: Flow boards should use paginated scrolling at the same time. Pagination is not a problem when you can search on a given page.
