SphinxsearchBundle

With this bundle you can use Sphinx to search in your Symfony2 project.

Installation

Step 1: Download SphinxsearchBundle using composer

In your composer.json, add SphinxsearchBundle:

{
    "require": {
        "iakumai/sphinxsearch-bundle": "dev-master"
    }
}

Now, you must update your vendors using this command :

$ php composer.phar update iakumai/sphinxsearch-bundle

Step 2: Add bundle in AppKernel.php

// app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
{
    $bundles = array(
        // ...
        new IAkumaI\SphinxsearchBundle\SphinxsearchBundle()
    );
}

Step 3: Configure your config.yml

By default bundle does not need to be a configured, but has some options for you.

Full configuration :

# app/config/config.yml
sphinxsearch:
    searchd:
        # Host name for your Sphinx daemon
        host: localhost
        # Port number for your Sphinx daemon
        port: 9312
        # If you want to connect via scoket
        socket: /path/to/socket.file
    indexes:
        # List of sphinx index names (key) and entity names (value)
        # to use it in searchEx() method
        IndexName: "Bundle:Entity"

Services

  • @iakumai.sphinxsearch.search - base search engine to use Sphinx search.

Maybe you want to use another class in @iakumai.sphinxsearch.search service. To do this put a full class name to the parameter named %iakumai.sphinxsearch.search.class%.

  • @iakumai.sphinxsearch.doctrine.bridge - bridge to dictrine datebase.

Maybe you want to use another class in @iakumai.sphinxsearch.doctrine.bridge service. To do this put a full class name to the parameter named %iakumai.sphinxsearch.doctrine.bridge.class%. It must implements a IAkumaI\SphinxsearchBundle\Doctrine\BridgeInterface

Exceptions

  • EmptyIndexException - you will see this exception if try to search without indexes.
  • NoSphinxAPIException - this exception throws if not SphinxAPI was found.

Highlight search results

You can highlight search words in templates by use sphinx_highlight filter.

For example:

<div class="text-block">
    {{ content|sphinx_highlight('IndexName', 'query word', {limit:100}) }}
</div>

In this example matches for "query word" in content variable will be highlighted for IndexName index. It use BuildExcerpts method for this.

Useful features

Sphinx search by date range

For example, search link looks like http://site.ru/search/?date-start=26.09.2013&date-end=27.09.2013

// ...
use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Controller\Controller;

class SearchController extends Controller
{
    public function indexAction(Request $request)
    {
        // Get a search service
        $sphinx = $this->get('iakumai.sphinxsearch.search');

        // Convert request parameters to \DateTime
        if ($datestart = $request->query->get('date-start')) {
            $datestart = \DateTime::createFromFormat('d.m.Y', $datestart);
        }

        if ($dateend = $request->query->get('date-end')) {
            $dateend = \DateTime::createFromFormat('d.m.Y', $dateend);
        }

        // Apply sphinx filter
        // updated - is a timestamp-attribute name in sphinx config
        $sphinx->setFilterBetweenDates('updated', $datestart, $dateend);

        return $sphinx->search($request->query->get('q', ''), array('IndexName'));
    }
}

Examples

This code will use IndexName index to search for a query in q-get parameter:

// In a controller
public function searchAction(Request $request)
{
    $searchd = $this->get('iakumai.sphinxsearch.search');
    return $sphinxSearch->search($request->query->get('q', ''), array('IndexName'));
}

You can use all methods, that provides by PHP SphinxAPI.

For example:

// In a controller
public function searchAction(Request $request)
{
    $searchd = $this->get('iakumai.sphinxsearch.search');
    $searchd->setLimits(0, 100);
    return $sphinxSearch->search($request->query->get('q', ''), array('IndexName'));
}

Now bundle can auto convert search results to entities if you will search for one index or define a index_name attribute in sphinx config. To to this, first configure index names, for example:

# app/config/config.yml
sphinxsearch:
    indexes:
        IndexName: "Bundle:Entity"

To convert multiple queries please add index_name attribute to your sphinx.conf file, for example:

source Example
{
    sql_query = SELECT id, ...., 'IndexName' as 'index_name' FROM my_table
    sql_attr_string = index_name
}

index IndexName
{
    source = Example
    path = /your/own/path
}

Now you can execute searchEx() method:

// In a controller
public function searchAction(Request $request)
{
    $searchd = $this->get('iakumai.sphinxsearch.search');
    $results_one = $sphinxSearch->searchEx($request->query->get('q', ''), 'IndexName');
    // or for multiple indexes (index_name attribute must exists)
    $results_two = $sphinxSearch->searchEx($request->query->get('q', ''), array('IndexName', 'SeconIndexName'));
}

$results_one now will contains something like this:

array(10) {
  .....
  ["matches"]=>
  array(20) {
    [22]=>
    array(3) {
      ["weight"]=>
      string(1) "2"
      ["attrs"]=>
      array(0) {
      }
      ["entity"]=> ... // Here is your Bundle:Entity
    }
    .........

$results_two now will contains something like this:

array(10) {
  .....
  ["matches"]=>
  array(20) {
    [22]=>
    array(3) {
      ["weight"]=>
      string(1) "2"
      ["attrs"]=>
      array(0) {
        ["index_name"]=>
        string(9) "IndexName"
      }
      ["entity"]=> ... // Here is your Bundle:Entity
    }
    .........

Pagerfanta adapter

This bundle also includes special adapter for excellent Pagerfanta bundle

/** @var $sphinx \IAkumaI\SphinxsearchBundle\Search\Sphinxsearch */
$sphinx = $this->get('iakumai.sphinxsearch.search');

/** @var $sphinxDoctrineBridge \IAkumaI\SphinxsearchBundle\Doctrine\Bridge */
$sphinxDoctrineBridge = $this->get('iakumai.sphinxsearch.doctrine.bridge');
$sphinx->setBridge($sphinxDoctrineBridge); //IMPORTANT! Set doctrine bridge.

$query = 'search query';
$entityIndexType = 'Books';

$adapter = new \IAkumaI\SphinxsearchBundle\Pagerfanta\Adapter\SphinxSearchAdapter($sphinx, $query, $entityIndexType, [
    'max_results' => 1000000,
]);
$pager = new Pagerfanta($adapter);
// Use pagerfanta as always
...
You can’t perform that action at this time.
