Integrating a fulltext search engine like solr/elasticsearch into a static blog would be a fun project. :blobcatthinkingglare:

@jle good to know. From a quick google round, that is like a plugin, right?

@ghost_letters Elasticsearch used to be pretty easy to get started with, I think it's even easier now! For a static site you might be able to use Logstash to parse out any front matter you have, although it could be overkill.

@lyndon it will be overkill to unleash a full elastic on my tiny blog, but that is okay. However, I am thinking about how to get the data in and search results out with a minimum of moving parts.
