I'm down for some reusable fulltext searching.
There are several interesting apps out there already, I'll take a look
and see what's out there.
So far, the best solutions seem to use solr (via pysolr), but that
requires running a java server like tomcat (eeechs.) The most
interesting is djangosearch:
Which relies on several useful toys, most of which are lucene-oriented:
It supports multiple search backends, which is nice, but I it might be
better to just focus on one backend. The concepts in information
retrieval are similar but each IR-library implements things in a
different way. If we focus on one backend it will simplify things
enormously. The trick is picking the right backend. :)
As for how a reusable search app should work: in my head, I envision
something like admin.py, except for searching. search.py:
from myapp.models import MyModel
# some attributes to specify which fields are searchable
# some attributes to specify "term boosting" for relatively
important fields, like "title"
I don't know if this is how it's done, but this seems like a very
django-flavored approach to searching.
Hope this starts an interesting conversation!
