Take a look at the demo, where you can play around. You can enter a search term in and see some dummy results (although all the dummy results are for people called Alan), you can even change the settings and positioning of the app.

To get you started, here are some things to try:

  • If you have not done so already, click on the demo link and wait for the app to fly in from the right
  • Search for the name Alan (they are all Alan's in this demo anyway)
  • Click on a plus icon to add one or more favourites
  • Click on the star icon within the menu, to see the favourites that you have added
  • Drag and drop a favourite to change the order
  • Click on the grid icon within the menu and then change the fields being displayed
  • Drag and drop a field to change the order
  • Click on the cog icon within the menu, to change the settings
  • Drag the title to a different area on the page

This project is continuously being improved and shaped and there is a lot more you can do in the real Goldfish application. After all, this is just a simple demo.
