#An alternative package search page for NixOS

There is already a page on the NixOS website for searching packages - Search NixOS packages - but it is very slow. This project is intended to be an improvement that uses simple, common sense programming to solve this problem. My hope is that the obvious way is the fastest.

The page consists of an html, a css, and a js file. In addition, this repository includes a split.js file that reads a packages.json file and outputs 5 new files of the form packages.{0,1,2,3,4}.json, each of which contain a portion of the NixOS packages in packages.json. A packages.json file can be retrieved from https://channels.nixos.org/nixos-19.09/packages.json.br (This file can be decompressed using the nixos.brotli program).
