Kirby Fuzzy Search (Beta)

Fuzzy-search plugin for Kirby. Looking for approximate matches of search queries in your content has never been this easy.

This is plugin is built on top of the fuzzget PHP library.

Basic Usage

If you are already using the Kirby built-in search method, replacing it with Fuzzy Search is just a matter of renaming a method on a pages collection:

$query    = get('q');
$articles = page('blog')
-   ->search($query, 'title|text');
+   ->fuzzySearch($query, 'title|text');

Fuzzy Search is not compatible with any of the other options available on the Kirby search method.

With Fuzzy Search you can also search through custom page methods or page models. You only need to include the method name in the fuzzySearch last parameter.

// site/plugins/methods.php
page::$methods['authorName'] = function($page) {
    $author = $page->author()->value();

    if ($user = site()->user($author)) {
        return $user->firstname().' '.$user->lastname();
$query    = get('q');
$articles = page('blog')
    ->fuzzySearch($query, 'title|text|authorName');

Searching through structured fields

Fuzzy Search ships with a handy field method that allows you to search on page fields that contains set of data, such as structured fields.

$result = page('faq')
    ->fuzzySearch($query, 'question|answer');

The $result will also be a Field object and not just a simple array. That way you are free to chain any Field method, such as toStructure, yaml, or isEmpty, after doing a search.

$result = page('contact')
    ->fuzzySearch($query, 'city')

Searching through arrays

You also can use the fuzzySearch function to search through an array of associative arrays.

$countries = [
    ['name' => 'Australia'],
    ['name' => 'Brazil'],
    ['name' => 'Canada'],
    ['name' => 'France'],
    ['name' => 'Germany'],
    ['name' => 'Portugal'],
    ['name' => 'United Kingdom'],
    ['name' => 'United States']

$results = fuzzySearch($countries, 'Brasil');

Advanced Usage

If you leave out the last parameter, Fuzzy Search will search through all keys (fields) in the provided data:


It's the same as using the * wildcard.

site()->index()->fuzzySearch($query, '*');

Fuzzy Search is very flexible when it comes to choosing which fields it should look for matches. Check out the other options:


If you want to search for a given term only in the title and text fields, just pass their names in the last parameter separated by |:

site()->index()->fuzzySearch($query, 'title|text');

That is syntax sugar for:

site()->index()->fuzzySearch($query, [
    'include' => ['title', 'text']


Of course you can also list fields you do not want to search through:

site()->index()->fuzzySearch($query, '-author|-date');

The above is the same as doing:

site()->index()->fuzzySearch($query, [
    'ignore' => ['author', 'date']

In this example, all fields will be considered in the search except for author and date.

If you need to include a custom page method or page model method, you can combine it with the wildcard and ignore syntax.

site()->index()->fuzzySearch($query, '*|authorName|-date');

The above will include all fields but date along with $page->authorName(), in case it's a custom page method or page model method.
