  Description     : Library for textually searching arrays and hashes of objects

 Sifter is a client and server-side library (via UMD) for textually
 searching arrays and hashes of objects by property – or multiple
 properties. It's designed specifically for autocomplete. The process
 is three-step: score, filter, sort.
  * Supports díåcritîçs.
    For example, if searching for "montana" and an item in the set has
    a value of "montaña", it will still be matched. Sorting will also
    play nicely with diacritics.
  * Smart scoring.
     Items are scored / sorted intelligently depending on where a match
     is found in the string (how close to the beginning) and what
     percentage of the string matches.
  * Multi-field sorting.
     When scores aren't enough to go by – like when getting results for
     an empty query – it can sort by one or more fields. For example,
     sort by a person's first name and last name without actually
     merging the properties to a single string.
  * Nested properties.
     Allows to search and sort on nested properties so you can perform
     search on complex objects without flattening them simply by using
     dot-notation to reference fields (ie. nested.property).

This package is a dependency necessary for pagure.
