I’m implementing a similar functionality to the Searchbox function that’s native to Bubble, but it’s so slow!
I have an input textbox and a repeating group below it that lists results based on a lowercase “contains” search (I store this separately in my DB because Bubble doesn’t have a case-insensitive search feature), like so:
When I type, it takes about 1 - 2 seconds after I stop typing for the repeating group to update. Is there a way to speed this up? I don’t think this is a db speed issue because 1) I only have a few dozen records at this point and 2) the Search Box feature shows results immediately. So, is this a matter of getting the repeating group to update faster?
How do I make my results as fast as the Search Box results?
It works better with lighter data (less fields) since the plugin loads every record in your data source.
A good workaround i found in my CRM was to have Fuzzy search through a state’s list of text containing just the search parameter (eg. Full Name) and I’ll point my RG’s data source’s constraint/advanced filter to the plugin’s result (eg. Full Name is in Result)
I’ve since built a simple but performant search workflow for my CRM but I suggest trying the plugin first!
@cmarchan - I don’t think that would work for my use case, because I want potential search results to pop up before a word is complete, much like the Search Box functionality does. “Contains keywords” only works with whole words.
