      Faceted Navigation

      Table of Contents

      Faceted navigation is one of the most powerful features of search. Appkit provides simple tags for rendering lists of facets and filters in your application, while also providing a single widget that handles many of the complexities of faceted navigation for you.

      Listing facets

      Self-closing the Facet List tag will output a list of all the facets and filter links with the default look-and-feel. Find out more about the facetList tag.

      <search:facet-list response="response" facet-names="*"></search:facet-list>

      You could then open the Facet List tag and place an individual Facet tag within it. Find out more about the facet tag.

      <search:facet-list response="response" facet-names="*">
          <search:facet facet-name="Author" collapsible="true"></search:facet>

      This tag is also customisable to allow different display values and behaviour. For a complete list of attributes, see the search:facet-list tag doc.
