On the Laravel News site there's a new tutorial posted showing you how to hook in the TNTSearch package with the Laravel Scout functionality replacing the default Algolia driver.
Laravel Scout provides a simple, driver-based solution for adding full-text search to your Eloquent models.
Out of the box, Laravel 5.3 ships with Algolia driver. However, we can easily write custom drivers; that’s exactly what TeamTnt has done by providing a TNTSearch driver for Laravel Scout.
The tutorial then walks you through getting the TNTSearch driver installed and integrated into your Laravel application (via Composer). They they show it in use on a sample database of film information and creating the related models. They show how to add in the "Searchable" trait for Scout, indexing the data and using the "search" method to locate matching results.
