Then you would typically have an API route that does the search. And you would query that endpoint in your frontend.

I saw there's an algolia search plugin, I wonder if that's worth a try

Oooh, I guess it depends how complex your data is and how critical the search feature is. Algolia is pretty complicated.

Meh not that complicated, I just need the title, image and slug returned so they can search and click on it

I mean on the frontend yes. But the Algolia setup is not trivial imo. I personally found it very overwhelming.

Oh I meant in terms of the data being critical and the search feature isn't super critical
