Quick start

  1. Create a POCO class to use in your search and decorate the properties with SearchablePropertyAttribute
public class Person
    [SearchableProperty(SearchName = "firstname")]
    public string FirstName { get; set; }
    [SearchableProperty(SearchName = "lastname")]
    public string LastName { get; set; }
    public int Age { get; set; }
  1. Fill the ISearchService with the appropriate “Person” data using the AddObjects() method. The objects must be wrapped inside an ISearchable implementation, for example the ReflectionSearchable:
searchService.AddObjects(persons.Select(x => new ReflectionSearchable(x));

In order to use the asynchronous version of search. Just use the Async suffix method names (i.e. SearchAsync(), AddObjectsAsync(), RemoveObjectsAsync())
