Information sources

When developing with Simplicité, there are several places where you can find documentation and examples to find the adequate solutions to your use cases:

Search options

At the moment you have two search options:

  • a classic search that scans the documentation (available in the docs menu)
  • an extended meta-search tool that scans all the preceding information sources (accessible through the results of the first search if it is not sufficient)

Unfortunately the product we use for the extended search (Google Custom Search Engine) offers no ad-free version and, if you have no Ad Blocker on your navigator, it will show some ads. Offering a better search experience is on our roadmap though, and we’ll keep you posted!

Fast access

If you are a frequent Simplicité User, and you are doing a lot of searches, it might be a good idea to add a keyword (for example sim) for a direct search from your navigator’s omnibox:

See omnibox usage example

Here are the intructions on how to install the omnibox search:
