Susper has been provided ‘Advanced Search’ feature which provides the user a great experience to search for desired results. Advanced search has been implemented in such a way it shows top authors, top providers, and distribution regarding protocols. Users can choose any of these options to get best results.
We receive data of each facet name from Yacy using yacy search endpoint. More about yacy search endpoint can be found here: http://yacy.searchlab.eu/solr/select?query=india&fl=last_modified&start=0&rows=15&facet=true&facet.mincount=1&facet.field=host_s&facet.field=url_protocol_s&facet.field=author_sxt&facet.field=collection_sxt&wt=yjson
For implementing this feature, we created Actions and Reducers using concepts of Redux. The implemented actions can be found here: https://github.com/fossasia/susper.com/blob/master/src/app/actions/search.ts
Actions have been implemented because these actually represent some kind of event. For e.g. like the beginning of an API call here.
We also have created an interface for search action which can be found here under reducers as filename index.ts: https://github.com/fossasia/susper.com/blob/master/src/app/reducers/index.ts
Reducers are a pure type of function that takes the previous state and an action and returns the next state. We have used Redux to implement actions and reducers for the advanced search.
For advanced search, the reducer file can be found here: https://github.com/fossasia/susper.com/blob/master/src/app/reducers/search.ts
The main logic has been implemented under advancedsearch.component.ts:
The changeurl() function replaces the query with a query and selected URL and searches for the results only from the URL provider. The removeurl() function removes URL from the query and works as a normal search, searching for the results from all providers.
