I can restrict the number of results to four using a hack on GridProvider, but this wouldn't create the scrollable UI the spec asks for.

Spoke to Kevin and it looks like we need to stop using <gaia-grid> here and create something custom instead.
Attached file WIP Patch (obsolete) —
Here's a work in progress patch which simply limits the grid to 4 items.

This doesn't achieve the horizontal scrolling behaviour required in the spec, but I think that's going to require some serious refactoring of GaiaGrid which we might want to consider doing in a follow-up.

I think implementing the scrolling UI will require either a) adding a horizontal scrolling mode to <gaia-grid> or b) creating a <gaia-icon> component to reuse in both <gaia-grid> and a new IconProvider, in order to reuse all the code in the various GridItems.

Limiting the grid to 4 items also doesn't meet the spec with regards to landscape mode showing more icons, but that's already limited to 4 wide so at least this isn't a regression.
Attached file Patch (obsolete) —
OK, I think this is ready for review.

There are some trade-offs in this patch. The apps results area has a fixed height to reduce flicker but means there's quite a gap before the next results section when icons only have one line labels. Also, the apps results area is hidden when there are no results, but this happens per grid provider which means that if the first provider returns no results it will get hidden but shown again if subsequent providers return results. Because all the providers return asynchronously there's no easy way around this without waiting to show results until all providers have returned.

The horizontal scrolling feature will happen in follow-up bug 1127369, but this patch at least reduces the results down to one line so that we can start to see the new results formatting taking shape.

Few nits I would like to see addressed, this looks good and agree with the approach to limit the gaia-grid to 4 and then work on horizontal scrolling

Thanks Dale, have addressed review comments.

Yeh putting any of this logic in grid_provider which is a base class for each of the providers is messy and possibly even wrong (if grid.add were to be synchronous), I cant think of what the problem adding it to search.js would be but I can help out with it. search.js handles deduplication and is the singleton that all the providers run through so its the right place to handle that logic

That aside the rest looks good, thanks

OK, not sure if this is any better.

Ben, how about 

    collect: function(provider, results) {

      if (provider.remote) {

      if (provider.dedupes) { 
        results = this.dedupe.reduce(results, provider.dedupeStrategy);

      if (results.length + shownResults > MAX_RESULTS) { 
        var spaces = MAX_RESULTS - shownResults;
        if (spaces < 1) { 
          return; // abort too?
        results.splice(spaces, (results.length - spaces));

      shownResults += results.length;

Remembering to clear shownResults in `clear`, 

It keeps the dedupe logic together with the count logic and doesnt depend on any implementation details of the grid so we can not render to gaia-grid and it doesnt need to change.
OK, I've updated the patch.

I think we may have some broken tests though, waiting for TreeHerder.
Treeherder is green! Dale, I think this is ready for review again.

If this sticks we should uplift to 2.2 as part of the search refactoring committed feature.
