Adding Confluence Search to a web site as widget or tool

We have a Confluence Documentation site. In addition we have a Support site that is not in Confluence. We would like to add a search widget to the Support site (similar to the Question field on this page) that would do a "live" search for related topics in our Documentation site as the user types in his support issue.

Are there any quick and easy tools out there to create this?

I was thinking of implementing something similar. I will prototype a pure JS widget which makes async requests to the Confluence API, see https://developer.atlassian.com/server/confluence/confluence-server-rest-api/

A request to the following URL will yield results in JSON format:

https://your-instance.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content/search?cql=space=Docs%20and%20type=page%20and%20text~create
