Looks great, but at first, when typing in text field, I thought nothing happened. And then, " oooooh, I need to scroll to see result(s)". Hmm

heard this from @jetienne yesterday too...

Would scrolling to the first element in the list when hitting enter in the search box improve usability?

Idea: make the result(s) show up between the text field and the

, pushing down (sliiiiiiiide) that div when there is a result(s).

@Raynos That is better than current, but that requires user to hit enter ...
I would prefer to have the results show while typing (live search), but actually show

Well an easy solution is rework the UI so that the expore features stuff becomes a sidebar. Or use a <details> for the explore features stuff (with a shim ;))

@aaronpeters movement whilst live typing is annoying, but that's personal opinion. It would at least require a sensible delay (1s ?)



  • scroll to the input area as soon as it is in focus
  • hide the explore features section and show only on click/focus.

Anything else?
