php please meili-search:index clear [Your MeiliSearch uid]
php please meili-search:index delete [Your MeiliSearch uid]
php please meili-search:documents help

Searching

Searching is best done with JavaScript talking to MeiliSearch directly. This will give you the most peformant real time searches. Here is a simple example of how you could do this with AlpineJS and TailwindCCS.

Note: These steps assume you already have AlpineJS and Tailwind CCS already set up and working in your project.

Install the MeiliSearch NPM module

npm install meilisearch

or

yarn add meilisearch

Import and set up MeiliSearch

import MeiliSearch from 'meilisearch';

window.client = new MeiliSearch({
  host: 'http(s)://Your MeiliSearch address & port',
  apiKey: 'Your MeiliSearch PUBLIC Key',
});

Customize your Search Component

Here is a basic autocomplete using AlpineJS and Tailwind CCS, feel free copy it, customize it, or just use it as insperation to do something completly diffrent.

<div
  x-data="{
    searchString: '',
    results: {
      hits: [],
    },
    index: window.client.getIndex('Your Index UID Goes Here'),
    async search() {
      this.state = 'searching';
      this.results = await this.index.search(this.searchString);
    }
  }"
  class="relative"
>
  <label
    class="sr-only"
  >
    Search
  </label>
  <input
    x-model="searchString"
