SDL DXA Search module

This module adds basic search capabilities to your DXA website. When installed, the module provides a search box in the header and a search results page showing a paginated list of published web pages and PDF/MS office docs matching the entered search term. The modules supports both Apache Solr and Amazon CloudSearch Managed Search Service. 

The Search module uses SI4T and the Apache Solr search engine (which you have to install and configure separately) or Amazon CloudSearch. This provides a framework to easily configure and build more advanced search features from content-type specific searches with customized result listings to auto-suggest features. SI4T de-couples the CMS and publishing process from the search implementation, so you can also use this module as an accelerator for integration with other search engines.

The SDL Digital Experience Accelerator helps you create, design and publish an SDL Tridion-based Web site quickly by doing the groundwork for you: it consists of Publications that are ready to publish to a dynamic, responsive and device-independent Web site with a customizable HTML design.

The SDL Digital Experience Accelerator creates a foundation for you to build on and reduces the SDL Tridion domain knowledge required to develop front-end (Web application) functionality. It provides a standard for creating and sharing content-related Web application functionality and widgets to optimize and accelerate the delivery of SDL Tridion-driven Web sites with rich user experiences.
