[Suggestion] Suggestion in search result

quyctd opened this issue · comments

Thank you for creating a great tool. I fall in love with it right after the first try.

I think the tool can be better if directly showing the search suggestion in the results. Like the way we search in the Chrome address bar.

Not sure is it possible, but I think it'll be very helpful :D

Yeah I could add a pseudoelement to show the suggestions inline.

The problem though is with the current set up. Right now the first result is a search action for your query, whatever it is. Should the order be switched and have the first entry be the best match from within Omni's results?

I think the best match show first will be better; then the second is my search query

I think the best match show first will be better; then the second is my search query

To be clear, best match within tabs / bookmarks / actions... and not best match as in the same autofill suggestion in Chrome's omnibar? I don't think I can make it autofill like in the image above, I could do so for websites (using the browser history), but for specific search queries I would need to use Google's API directly.

Might want to see what people think about this specifically though before making any changes.

Here is my idea:

Normally, if I type to the search box, I prefer the best match in all cases, including tabs/bookmarks/actions/history/search, etc. But it may hurt the performance, I think.

If I know that I want to search, I think a shortcut like /s or /search will be helpful. Like the way you're currently allowed for /tabs, /actions.

I could look into it. I just don't want it to conflict with #40 and and #25. I guess if the input is a URL the top action could be to open it, otherwise only show actions within the Omni? I guess I could move search into its own command, true.

Yes, I think if the input is URL, then opening it makes sense.

In my case, I usually do not type the entire URL, mainly using some first letter and waiting for the suggestion, so I think we can count it as 2 separate use cases.
