Description

In spirit of #9643, I'm thinking about taking a look at implementing faceted browsing in a couple places in Trac, esp. in the Search module.

While any initial feedback on the idea is most welcome, my first more directed question to the audience would be if anyone has any suggestions for some existing library to use for this. Any good and/or bad experiences with anything? I guess directly related would be finding something that would be best digestible by Trac core, with any of it's possible quirks and whatnot (#10245).

Just stumbled upon http://documentcloud.github.com/visualsearch, which looks nice and interesting.

Wow, nice find. I remember DocumentCloud from Changelog podcast, they are on episode 0.0.5 and 0.2.9.

Does this affect #9643 integration position as well, you think?

A more structured search, over generic properties (e.g. author, date of change/creation) is certainly a worthwhile long term goal. Adding to the list. This has indeed strong connections with #9643, but that one is more focused on the current capabilities of the query system.

This seems like it might be related to BloodHound's search. Might it be possible to back port that, or part of it, to Trac?

Yes, I think we should consider it: #11627.
