Gluon - Adding search

It’s approaching 02:00 AM here on this lovely, rainy, Friday. However, the rain isn’t going to stop me from enjoying myself! So, I’m introducing a new section on the Discover screen (on iOS for the moment)… Search.

You can now search for both Posts and Users.

Here is a screenshot of the result page for posts:

And users also, just like the just announced new feature of searching for domain names:

All you have to do is type your query and hit search on the keyboard. It will go ahead and fetch both posts and users. The items “Posts” and “Users” let you actually switch which ones you want to view. They both also contain a loading icon, so you know which one is finished or not. And of course a count too of the results.

I’m still deciding on styling here, however I’m happy that it’s functional - which was my aim for tonight.

Anyway, hope you enjoy it and look forward to your feedback. Look out for the update on iOS (20190517.1).

Thanks:

I want to give thanks to Jimmy (@jmreekes) for great feedback on the Android app and finding a few bugs! Thank you Jimmy 😊
