Objective

The talk should serve as a jumping off point for engineers looking to use search-index, and creative types who want to create new concepts around “Small Data”. The obvious benefit is knowing a technology that lets you put a search index in the browser. It opens up for some fascinating stuff.

Description

Search-index is a module for doing free-text search in Javascript. In this talk we will explore various approaches to indexing data on the server and in the browser. We will show how search-index integrates with other technologies such as Browserify, the Level family, PouchDB and NPM, together with code examples.
