Search X is a response to the many search and filtering apps available for Shopify that I consider to be bloated, slow, inefficient, and difficult to customize. The three core focuses of Search X are 1) lightning fast search query speed performance, 2) the smallest possible page payload size, with just 18K of data sent to the browser with no external library dependencies, and 3) easy and advanced customization, with things like quick shop, color swatches, and tag groups.
