Stuck on an issue?

Lightrun Answers was designed to reduce the constant googling that comes with debugging 3rd party libraries. It collects links to all the places you might be looking at while hunting down a tough bug.

Very inconvenient to search for certain values like '100Ohm 0402 resistor'

See original GitHub issue

When you search for ‘100 0402’ or ‘100 0402 resistor’, thousands of results appearing in the result box. Screenshot_20211029_155648

However, you can get the desired result if you search with ‘100Ω’.

Considering the fact that most people don’t have the Ω symbol on their keyboard, I think it would be nice to have some form of auto-conversion in the search box, like converting ohm to Ω.

I have the Greek alphabet mapped on my keyboard so I can type stuff like Ω or μ with 4 keystrokes each.

But perhaps having a simple string-replace of \R or \W to “Ω” in searches translated would be a simple way to make Ω searches easier. Likewise \u or \m for “μ”. Using backslash seemed reasonable since I’ve never seen it in a part’s description, and it could be easily escaped if needed as \\.

JLC’s own search doesn’t have a way to respect word boundaries (e.g. 1kΩ will match 5.1kΩ). Quotes could be useful there, e.g. "1kΩ" would only match space-delimited word 1kΩ.

I think the Ohm would make sense in the keyword field only, so you could put it to the right of the keyword field and append to this field only. Also, a dropdown list for the category would be nice (btw it’s “resistors”, not “resistor”).
