Multi-level search in a Select prompt

See original GitHub issue

Hello 👋

I’m using cliffy with two levels of Select prompting at the moment. That is, users need to select some item, but in order to not overwhelm them, those items are broken down into categories. The user must then first select a category before they can select an item. You can visualize it as:

  "category1": ["item1","item2"],
  "category2": ["item3"],
  "category3": ["item4","item5","item6"]

This works pretty well, but I really wish that I could start searching for items immediately when I am prompted to choose a category. Is there a nice way to achieve that today? And if not, is it something you think cliffy should support?

should categories be selectable in search results? I would probably expect them to be greyed out, and not something you can navigate to.

Should be fine if they are grayed out.

what if the category is a search hit, but an underlying option is not? Should all the options in that category be displayed? Should the category be selectable in that particular case? Should the category even count as a search hit?

I think it should be fine to make only items sarchable.

I’ll make a note here if I start actually developing, so don’t take my questions and clarifications as indication that I’ve started on anything 😊
