Search Zotonic’s resources using the Search.

For instance, the API call:

http://localhost:8000/api/search?cat=text&text=test

Returns a JSON list of all resource ids of the category text that contain the string test:

[320]

Adding &format=simple to the API call gives us a list of JSON objects:

[
  {
      "category": [
          "text"
      ],
      "id": 338,
      "preview_url": "http://example.dev:8000/image/2014/10/8/image_2014_09_09_19_19_41.png%28800x800%29%28upscale%29%28CF8AD1D93AC1B8457F9AD6B9BA64C74F%29.jpg",
      "summary": {
          "trans": {
              "en": "English summary",
              "es": "Spanish summary"
          }
      },
      "title": {
          "trans": {
              "en": "English",
              "es": "Hola hola Espanol"
          }
      }
  }
]
