Searching was one of the most requested features at Daily. We introduced it in Daily last year in November and got an overwhelming response. You can read about it in detail here. 💯

🌟 Later, we also introduced Vim key bindings in the Daily. A big part of the update was making the search work without using the mouse. It worked out pretty well!

With all the updates, now you can quickly search for the articles in Daily. This guide will help you walk through it.

🔍 Search in Daily

Daily perform a super-fast search using Algolia. It searches the database against the entered query and also suggests auto-complete when a match is found. ⚡️

You can use this feature to search for:

  • 📟 A particular phrase
  • 📇 A specific article

Or whatever you'd like.
