Add search syntax for operators and phrases #11411

merged 1 commit into from Jul 27, 2019

Gargron commented Jul 26, 2019

Supports syntax like:

  • Operators, like +foo (AND) and -bar (NOT)
  • Phrases, like "hello world"
  • Prefixes, like foo:"hello world" (currently unused)

It does change the default of treating all words as joined by AND, so "quick fox" will include items that only contain "fox" and only contain "quick" as well (although items containing "quick fox" will score higher, like before).

The new phrase syntax allows to search for an exact sequence of words instead.

Included is also a small change that allows circumventing the URL resolving logic to use only the search even when a URL is given, when the resolve param is set to false. I believe that's how it should have been all along.
