With bug 1029454 we created a /betasearch view behind waffle. This bug is about altering and enhancing the search code with the django_filters package  to allow users to free text search and/or limit by groups, skills, timezone and other profile data. After evaluating the results of the experiment, new bugs will be filled to move code to the normal /search view  https://django-filter.readthedocs.org/en/latest/

Commits pushed to master at https://github.com/mozilla/mozillians https://github.com/mozilla/mozillians/commit/d66031320ad851069486612124be790ff3be2ccc [Bug 1048844] Implement vouched filter in /betasearch using django-filter. https://github.com/mozilla/mozillians/commit/879707bcf98e503d9a06bb428eebfd50547408e6 [bug 1048844] Add skills, groups, timezone filtering in /betasearch.
OK the /betasearch page now uses django-filter and we also have a few filters for demo. Further steps: - Expand to more filters, like country, external accounts, etc - Improve the UI: We currently use a hidden div with all the filters. - Let's make this beautiful - Let's make this visible on load when there are search filters in place. - We can always explore more, like on-the-fly updates of the results.
Chromano are you interested to continue working on this? If yes that are your opinions about comment #2?

Yep, I`m interested. Regarding the UI, I think it would make sense to let the users add as many filters as they want instead of cluttering the interface with lots of options to choose from. I will implement my idea then we can discuss on it, thoughts?
A couple of thoughts regarding /betasearch UI: * For fields like skills and groups that have many entries, we can experiment with some kind of auto completion. * We can show an overview of the fields we are filtering our results near "search" field, with a small `x` button in case user wants to revert that filter to it's default value. :chromano If you think you are ready to implement your idea, I suggest to go for it and then discuss for further enhancements. Also, if it works for you, we can start tracking /betasearch with a tracker bug blocked by new features/enhancements.

Hey :chromano you pinged me the other day. Are you still up for this bug?
(In reply to Giorgos Logiotatidis [:giorgos] from comment #7) > Hey :chromano you pinged me the other day. Are you still up for this bug? Yeap, I will have more time during the end of the week/weekend to work on it, you can expect a patch by then. Thanks! :)
Hey :chromano, since there is long time since your last activity regarding /betasearch would you like to catch up on IRC (#commtools) regarding any further changes? Teams have changed so i am not sure that the rest of the current members are informed about this effort.
The django_filter experiment has been removed from mozillians.org as part of the search refactor (django-haystack). I am marking this bug as wontfix.
