Website plug (re Pagefind site search) 

“Pagefind is quite a find for site search” • It used to be that having a search on a static site was a hassle — and perhaps an expensive one — but Pagefind has changed all that.

@BryceWrayTX interesting, but that's not static anymore. Instead of just plain storage (eg. gitlab pages) you'll need a vps to host it. Still something to keep an eye on as far as I'm concerned, but I prefer my method right now: build a json index and do the search with client side js. It can get expensive but it doesn't require a server.

@gabmus You may want to read that again — absolutely no need for a VPS.

@BryceWrayTX oh, thanks for letting me know! Definitely, I read it this morning while drinking coffee, I was still half asleep 😅
