Can someone help me how to do a working searchbar

as I understand search bars are pretty tough to make. However this depends on what you want to search. Do you want to search your website? Or use a search engine?

@PufferFishMan than yeah I don't know how much coding experience you have but this is difficult to make. I would ask @Coder100

  1. search engines are not super easy to make, but they are possible, it'll take a week's worth of time where you recursively scrape every link you can find.

  2. a website search bar is very possible let me make a quick example

@PufferFishMan Building off of what coder100 said you will also need a huge amount of CPU, bandwidth and storage.

In addition, you might also need to add some restricting properties to your crawler to avoid sites who don't want their web pages crawled.
