I'd like to implement a fast, smooth search. Searched items are not that many: ~100 max. Each item holds the amount of data a facebook event would hold. They will all show up on initial load (maybe an infite scroll). Data won't change frequently. No more than 100 concurrent users.
What's the best caching strategy for search results, given above conditions?
What's the most scalable strategy?
- Frontend: Nuxt (VueJS) + InstantSearch (no Algolia!)
- Backend: Spring boot
- Extra caching service on the backend (e.g. reddis, memcached) + make UI go to sever on each search operation. This would basically spam the backend on each keystroke
- Load all items into local storage (e.g. Vuex) and search there directly. This will increase the app's memory footprint and may turn out messy overtime.
- A combination of the two?
