Is there is way to search synonym when user is inputting the name. Something like how things work in SO's tag search page.

enter image description here

j2se is a synonym of java tag, but it appears in search when searching for j2s.

  • No, the API does not provide directly for this. But there are only 3000 synonyms and they change rather slowly. So your app can store a table of all 3000, check for new synonyms using creation_date, and use this table to augment the API's inname search. Commented Mar 16, 2018 at 10:58

    Thanks for the suggestion @BrockAdams. I think it can work.
