These days I am writing technical documentation with Markdown, using the Vuepress static site generator.

The default theme has a search box built in, but this search box only indexes the Headlines and what appears in the sidebar. I need a fulltext search mechanism. Is there a plugin or an external too that can give me fulltext search easily?

Update: I know they mention AlgoliaSearch in the Vuepress documentation, but I want my own until my writing project is finished.

    Might be worth looking at the following article which explains how to implement it using FlexSearch: ahmadmostafa.com/2019/12/09/…

  • Meanwhile I've changed my mind, and have resorted to Algolia, it's just 20-30 pages I'm talking about,
