WP Serverless Search is a WordPress Plugin that brings site search functionality back to static WordPress sites.
Unlike most search WordPress Plugins it does not rely on PHP or any 3rd party search providers such as Google or Algolia to work. Instead, WP Serverless Search is completely static, free to use, local, and crazy fast.
WP Serverless Search Explained
To best explain the features and benefits of WP Serverless Search, here are a few FAQs:
Is WP Serverless Search a WordPress site search plugin?
Can I use it to replace native WordPress Search?
Can I still use it with a non-static WordPress site?

Why did you build this?
Native WordPress site search is slow and inaccurate. We wanted to improve that experience and find a solution that works for us so we built one.

Nope. The current version works by launching a modal window much like Google Custom Search Engine
