Global Search

First, a quick video demo of the module.

How does it work?

After installing the module, you can enable any individual field in any CRUD to be "searchable":

And then, in the generated panel, in top-left corner, you will see a search field, which, after you type in at least 3 characters, will look for all records in all CRUDs/Fields you specified:

Customization

If you want to customize the behavior of Global Search, it's all in the generated file app/Http/Controllers/Admin/GlobalSearchController.php, here's the main method:

public function search(Request $request)
{
$search = $request->input('search');
if ($search === null || !isset($search['term'])) {
abort(400);
}
$term = $search['term'];
$searchableData = [];
foreach ($this->models as $model => $translation) {
$modelClass = 'App\\' . $model;
$query = $modelClass::query();
$fields = $modelClass::$searchable;
foreach ($fields as $field) {
$query->orWhere($field, 'LIKE', '%' . $term . '%');
}
$results = $query->take(10)
->get();
foreach ($results as $result) {
$parsedData = $result->only($fields);
$parsedData['model'] = trans($translation);
$parsedData['fields'] = $fields;
$formattedFields = [];
foreach ($fields as $field) {
$formattedFields[$field] = Str::title(str_replace('_', ' ', $field));
}
$parsedData['fields_formated'] = $formattedFields;
$parsedData['url'] = url('/admin/' . Str::plural(Str::snake($model, '-')) . '/' . $result->id . '/edit');
$searchableData[] = $parsedData;
}
}
return response()->json(['results' => $searchableData]);
}

So if, for example, you want the default click to lead to SHOW method instead of default EDIT, you need to change this line:

$parsedData['url'] = url('/admin/' . Str::plural(Str::snake($model, '-')) . '/' . $result->id . '/edit');
