Real-time full-text search is a feature that enhances the user experience of web applications, particularly in online stores, social media platforms, documentation, and blogs. It enables users to search and instantly get up-to-date information returned to them. Combining that with an experience where search results update as a user types (without direct user query submission or a page reload) provides an even better UX that helps users get the information they need more efficiently.
In the following section, we'll provide background info on real-time, full-text search, and how Tigris is an enabler of both. However, feel free to jump to the Tutorial to follow the step-by-step guide. Or, head to the real-time full-text search GitHub repo if you want to dive into the code.
