Hi all,

This site looks great.
In order to write a search plugin with auto complete for firefox, a suggestion api is needed, which returns a json. Could this be done?



do you have an example of what needs to be returned?

For example in wikipedia
["perl",["Perl","Perlis","Perlis FA","Perlite","Perl 6","Perleberg","Perlino","Perl Compatible Regular Expressions","Perl module","Perla Beltr\u00e1n"]]

I think not.
It has to be in the format described in the following link:

@david-gang what's the use case for this?

It would be nice to have it as a part of a firefox search plugin.
Then if on the right edgt at the top, you type a query, you will get an autocomplete list.

I don't know how to explain the use case better.
I need some api where i get autocomplete results
