To enable it, you only need to set
build_search_index = true in your
config.toml and Zola will
generate an index for the
default_language set for all pages not excluded from the search index.
It is very important to set the
default_language in your
config.toml if you are writing a site not in
English; the index building pipelines are very different depending on the language.
zola build or
zola serve, you should see two files in your static directory:
search_index.en.jsfor a default setup
Configuring the search index
In some cases, the default indexing strategy is not suitable. You can customise which fields to include and whether to truncate the content in the search configuration.
