Prefetch autocomplete offers

When searching, the autocomplete options can be a bit frustrating because you will be offered choices that won't yield a result. This addon searches for the term in the background and only offers an option if this search has a result.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • some searches (especially via function fields) can be very heavy on the server. To disable prefetching on a per field basis, set the option web_search_autocomplete_prefetch.disable:

    options="{'web_search_autocomplete_prefetch.disable': true}"

    on your field in the search view.

  • by default, the addon triggers a search 350 milliseconds after the last key pess. If you want a different timeout, set the parameter web_search_autocomplete_prefetch.keypress_timeout to the amount of milliseconds you need as timeout.
