Is there a way to have the autocomplete functionality shown here: https://community.algolia.com/demo-textarea-autocomplete/autocomplete-with-pictures.html and then run a search on the entire contents of that textarea?
Is what you’re trying to achieve something like:
- Run a search on an index with
Catherine Missalas a query and display the results below the searchbox
So if you don’t have the “@”, it won’t try to autocomplete the name and just search normally.
One idea would be to listen to the change inside the textarea and launch a new search with the query being the content.
What technical stack are you using for your project right now? Do you already use an algolia library?
