CakeDC Search Plugin

Bake Status Downloads Latest Version

This Search plugin enables developers to quickly implement the POST-Redirect-GET pattern.

The Search plugin is an easy way to implement PRG in your application, and provides you with a paginate-able search in any controller. It supports simple methods to search inside models using strict and non-strict comparing, but also allows you to implement any complex type of searching.

  • PRG Component: The component will turn GET parameters into POST to populate a form and vice versa.
  • Search Behaviour: The behavior will generate search conditions passed in the provided GET parameters.


This plugin is abandoned in favor of FriendsOfCake/search.

This is not a Search Engine or Index

As mentioned before, this plugin helps you to implement searching for data using the PRG pattern. It is not in any way a search engine implementation or search index builder, although it can be used to search an index such as Elastic Search or Sphinx.


  • CakePHP 2.5+
  • PHP 5.2.8+
