I have a question about how Anytype’s Search works or should be expected to work wrt linked objects.
I really like and embrace Anytype links and the graph concept.
I often find myself creating separate objects that are named the same (using a minimal title),
but would be identified by its links.
E.g. say I have the following objects, where (X) identifies a unique object
parking (A) → airport (B) → Zurich
parking (C) → Zurich
parking (D) → airport (E) → Malaga
parking (F) → Malaga
I.e. I keep a “parking” object to hold all the information about parking at the airport in Malaga,
another for parking in Malaga in general.
Similarly I have “parking” objects for information regarding parking at the Zurich airport or Zurich in general.
Ideally, I would expect Search to behave like this:
- query “parking Zurich airport” → shows A as result
- query “parking Zurich” → shows A and C as result
- query “parking airport” → shows A and D as result
- query “parking” → shows A, C, D, F as results
This does not seem to be the case right now.
What’s the current developers’ view on this?
Where can I find more details about how the global Search functionality is implemented or any current plans/opportunities to extend it?
