UX improvements on Marketplace search

Current state

  1. Search on marketplace works in two modes:
    • by extension’s name
    • by extension’s author (with @-prefix)
  2. Spaces are restricted (search result are not affected, but looks ugly)

Idea on how to improve search for Users

  • Expand search to additional fields: description, plugin id, keywords (from package.json)
  • Make search by author works without @-prefix too (there is no need to disable @-prefix, as it restricts search when it needs: by clicking on author name)
  • Allow spaces :slight_smile:

It seems the issue with typing spaces is resolved.
