Wax:search is the task responsible for generating a search index for your site to use.

You can run the task with:

bundle exec rake wax:search SEARCH_NAME

This will:

  1. Look for the search configuration you set up in your _config.yml file. (See: Updating your configuration), and find the one with SEARCH_NAME, .e.g. main.

  2. For each collection you gave the search, it will look for the markdown pages and add the fields and/or content from each page to the index.

  3. It will write the index as a JSON file to the filename you gave (index).
