8. React Movie Search

A react native search bar for every application, website or system dealing with movies whether that be a movie download or review site. The layout is beautiful in itself with collection of recent movies at display. If its not the recent movie that you are looking for simply type the movie title and on each instance you will get the relevant results. Keep typing until you get the result you have been looking for.

One thing that I hate in other search bar specifically one movie site is that as I search in the search bar a number of results appear but I need to select one of them to see detail. Well what if I am not sure about the movie and need to see the results in big layout rather than just dropdown. Sometime I just press enter thinking I will get into suggestion contents. However, I get into wrong movie by that. This component example of react native search bar removes that entirely. I hope that site also implements the same interface so that I can enjoy my movies with more peace.

9. Search List with ReactJS

The example is very similar to native search bar result of any react application related to contact. However, I would wish this example to support search based on name as well as number. Currently search operation is on the basis of name only but this is just a prototype that can be developed in any way we like. You won’t see any search icon because the search results are asynchronous.

10. React Search Filter

Another search bar that comes along some suggestion list to help users search even though they have no idea from where to start. The suggestion list is also the container for the search results. Therefore, as the users input their queries the results are filtered within the layout. We can really say the style is appealing because its just a plain layout with css just for font styles. However, alot can be done with customization for giving it the looks as we desire. We can’t complain much about the functionality though.

This example of reach search component is similar like the one we just talked about. It is same in the sense that initially it comes with a suggestion list for users to think of. However, it search interface and result box are clearly distinctive unlike previous one. This one too supports asynchronous search as you type. However, search is based on single entity although there;s additional things linked along. It would be a real gem of an application if filtering could be done on the basis of a number of related entities.

Finally our wish has been fulfilled. We have a simple react search component that will give results matching either of the available entity. Therefore, removing the dependency from single entity and giving users more freedom to search.
