Search Lucene API

Even though the core search module is quite powerful, it is not that easy to find another module that would add Solr-like search functionality (faceted search, fielded sorting of search results, finer-grained content bias) to Drupal. The best search engine available, Apache Solr Search Integration, requires a separate search server or at least Java 5 or higher. These requirements are not always easy to satisfy by small or start-up websites.

Search Lucene API, intervenes right at this point. It has almost all the functionality of Apache Solr (not the same performance of course however quite satisfying) and it is much easier to implement. The following modules that depend on Search Lucene API make it even more powerful.

  • Search Lucene DidYouMean – Provides Google-like “did you mean” recommendations by detecting and correcting spelling errors based on the site’s content.
  • Search Lucene MoreLikeThis – Adds a block that displays content recommendations based on the text in the node being viewed.
  • Search Lucene CCK – Indexes CCK data as separate Lucene fields and adds options to expose them as bias fields.
  • Search Lucene Tagcloud – Adds a facet realm that displays facets as tagadelic-like links.
