[oXygen-user] SearchJS transformation?

Hi Yves,
There's an htmlsearch plugin available in the files section of the dita-users yahoogroup, however it hasn't been touched in a few years and I don't know if it works out-of-the-box with the tocjs. Perhaps you have to do a little work to get them together. 

Btw., the htmlsearch plugin was used as the basis for webhelp for docbook:

In doing that, Kasun Gajasinghe added stemming and CJK support to the search, but we didn't remove any of the DITA-specific stuff from the indexer (e.g. use of shortdesc for the search summaries), so you could use it to cook up a DITA-based webhelp. Note that you'll need to modify the JavaScript portions of the htmlsearch plugin too since you need to stem/tokenize the search input so it matches what was indexed. 

The DocBook webhelp stuff will be included in the 1.76.0 release of the DocBook xsls.

Hi group (and Radu)

I have just discovered the TocJS transformation, which gives me a nice
"Contents" pane in my HTML output. Are there any plans for a "SearchJS"
transformation which works in a similar way? This would give us a
"webhelp-ish" output of a DITA map.
