Datasette plugin for searching all searchable tables at once.

Installation

Install the plugin in the same Python environment as Datasette:

pip install datasette-search-all

Background

See datasette-search-all: a new plugin for searching multiple Datasette tables at once for background on this project. You can try the plugin out at https://fara.datasettes.com/

Usage

This plugin only works if at least one of the tables connected to your Datasette instance has been configured for SQLite's full-text search.

The Datasette search documentation includes details on how to enable full-text search for a table.

You can also use the following tools:

  • sqlite-utils includes a command-line tool for enabling full-text search.
  • datasette-enable-fts is a Datasette plugin that adds a web interface for enabling search for specific columns.

If the plugin detects at least one searchable table it will add a search form to the homepage.

You can also navigate to /-/search on your Datasette instance to use the search interface directly.
