searching for communities that exist but haven't been cached - eviltoast

My biggest gripe with *lemmy is the community search only brings up communities that have already been cached by the instance you’re on

At first I would search for communities and be shocked that there’s so many that don’t exist until I realized I have to manually go on my browser and type myserverurl/c/communityIFoundSomewhereElse@ItsInstance if im the first one from my instance to want to sub to that community

Is there a site that can search all communities that this app can communicate to, then force my instance to cache from a search result?

Would make this app really stand out

    I’d like some sort of remote search feature in Lemmy. Maybe it’d be at the client level, but something that could search either lemmyverse or maybe a list of servers you know about.
