Live Search with Quicksilver String Ranking Algorithm
We have seen a lot of examples of Live Search. But now, Ordered List has added a bit of a twist to it. Steve mentioned that the typical year and month layout of archives was overkill. He thought a better way to present them would be to list them all and let live search sort ‘em out. He has created Live Search with Quicksilver Style by integrating “Quicksilver string ranking algorithm” into Live Search component. “Quicksilver string ranking algorithm” will be able to recognize which items you are searching for if you just use abbreviations, so you can type entire words, or just fragments of each.
For example, sure you can search ‘sidebar creative’ to find posts titled that, now you can just type ‘sdbcv’ to get the same result. And that guy Nunemaker, but is that name a keyboardful. Why don’t we just hit a few of the important characters like ‘nnmkr’. The post of “Welcome John Nunemaker” is right there at the top. Try out the demo, you will love this immediately.
