User Live Search with Stimulus, Turbo Frames and PgSearch

Curated ago by @jeremysmithco


Here’s a solution I’ve used on a project to add a user switcher dropdown with typeahead search to a navbar. It uses the pg_search gem for Postgres full-text search.

There are a lot of blog posts out there with similar solutions, with terms like: typeahead, autocomplete, autosuggest, instant search.
