Sift is available for Umbraco V8 and Umbraco V9. The easiest way to install it is by using NuGet.

> Install-Package StuartMullinger.Sift8
> Install-Package StuartMullinger.Sift9

Once installed, a front-end developer need only create some HTML with specific classes and attributes and a fully functioning filter will be rendered, allowing the website user to search the Umbraco content as specified.

<h1>Simple Filter</h1>
<div class="sift"
    <form class="sift-criteria">
        <label for="filmName">Name</label>
        <input type="text" id="filmName" name="filmName"
               data-sift-match-property="nodeName" />
        <input type="submit" value="Search" />
    <div class="sift-result">
<script src="~/Scripts/sift.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

The front-end developer has the flexibility to style the form as required, and can even override the default results to display and style the filtered content. The code above will return content with a document type of "cinemaCento", filtered on the node name according to the text the user has entered in the input field.

Sift is free to use, with no limiting of the functionality.
