The time has finally to come to start the work on an (for the moment) internal Filter API and Query Language.

So if you like to help out and provide some feedback on how this should look like, please have a look at issue #31 on GitHub and maybe join the discussion in the Package Drone mattermost channel.

The idea is to have a filter API which can be fed with a filter model so that searches can be performed by the backend in the technology suited base for the backend. So the approach may be: read filter string from configuration -> parse to generic model instance -> provide to search. And now the search can for example use Java 8 streams to perform the search or transform the filter model to a JPA criteria query and let the database to the job.

Thanks for your help!
