Possibly, I have been doing some experiments. I have re-enabled it.

It is now also referred to from the main docs page:

The search term edit box now has type-ahead enabled.

Sources (webpage/server) can be found on:

The server needs the latest fpindexer:


The indexer works using postgres, but sqlite, firebird (in fact any SQLDB DB) are
also supported. There is also support for a custom file format.

The "client" is written in pas2js.

So it comprises now a full-fledged example of how FPC can be used as a 
full-stack web development environment.

In a couple of moments, I will commit a more general version of the 
HTML searchengine under fpindexer examples.
