v27 v28 54 54 == Search Engines 55 55 56 Several search engines could be good candidate for handling the search requests, but probably this should be done in a pluggable way, so that different search engines could be supported, including a ''fallback'' engine (i.e. the current SQL-based search in the database), which would require no extra package. 56 Several search engines could be good candidate for handling the search requests, but probably this should be done in a pluggable way, so that different search engines could be supported, including a ''fallback'' engine. 57 57 58 Among thepossible candidates: 58 possible candidates: 59 59 * [http://www.xapian.org Xapian]. See also the discussion about using Xapian in MoinMoin: MoinMoin:FeatureRequests/AdvancedXapianSearch 60 60 * [http://lucene.apache.org/pylucene/ PyLucene] … … 67 67 - [http://blog.case.edu/bmb12/2006/08/merquery_summer_of_code_results merquery], which was also a Django-specific Google SoC project in 2006. 68 68 - [http://www.opensearchserver.com/ OpenSearch] of which the source code is hosted on [https://github.com/jaeksoft/opensearchserver github] 69 * DatabaseBackend may also have their own way to implement full text search: 70 - SQLite 3.3.8+ comes with a full-text search module [https://www.sqlite.org/fts3.html FTS3 and FTS4].

More critically, FTS support is also not shipped with any major distribution I'm aware of. 71 - PostgreSQL v8.3+ has [http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/textsearch.html integrated full text search] as a core functionality. 72 - [http://www.sai.msu.su/~megera/oddmuse/index.cgi/Tsearch2 Tsearch2] and an [http://www.devx.com/opensource/Article/21674 article about tsearch2] 73 - [http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/fulltext-search.html MySQL fulltext indexing] is not an option, because it is only available for MyISAM type tables, which don't have transaction support 74 69 75 70 Not an engine, but might be a source of inspiration nonetheless: [http://haystacksearch.org/ Haystack], modular search for Django, supports Solr, Whoosh and Xapian.
