Yahoo! Search Direct code review

Late last month, the Yahoo! Search team launched a new feature called Search Direct that aims to give answers (not just search result links) as you type into a search field. Our good friend Caridy Patiño had a hand in its making—as did YUI 3—so we figured we'd get him on the call to talk about how it was built.

For high traffic sites like Yahoo!, adding highly dynamic features like Search Direct has to be thoroughly reviewed and performance tuned. And as a platform solution, it also had to be architected to be flexible and future compatible. In short, there should be plenty of examples of best practices and YUI 3 development patterns to be shared.

Let's look under the hood.
