v2.6.0 (2017-01-02)

  • Merge #1460: backend support for Elasticsearch 2.x. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to João Junior (@joaojunior) and Bruno Marques (@ElSaico) for the patch

    Closes #1460 Closes #1391 Closes #1336 Closes #1247

  • Docs: update Elasticsearch support status. [Chris Adams]

  • Tests: avoid unrelated failures when elasticsearch is not installed. [Chris Adams]

    This avoids spurious failures in tests for other search engines when the elasticsearch client library is not installed at all but the ES backend is still declared in the settings.

  • Tests: friendlier log message for ES version checks. [Chris Adams]

    This avoids a potentially scary-looking ImportError flying by in the test output for what's expected in normal usage.

  • Tests: update ES version detection in settings. [Chris Adams]

    This allows the tests to work when run locally or otherwise outside of our Travis / Tox scripts by obtaining the version from the installed elasticsearch client library.

  • Tests: update ES1 client version check message. [Chris Adams]

    The name of the Python module changed over time and this now matches the ES2 codebase behaviour of having the error message give you the exact package to install including the version.

  • Update travis script with ES documentation. [Chris Adams]

    Add a comment for anyone wondering why this isn't a simple add-apt-repository call

  • Fixed More Like This test with deferred query on Elasticsearch 2.x. [Bruno Marques]

  • Fixed expected query behaviour on ES2.x test. [Bruno Marques]

  • Install elasticsearch2.0 via apt. [joaojunior]

  • Install elasticsearch2.0 via apt. [joaojunior]

  • Remove typo. [joaojunior]

  • Remove services elasticsearch. [joaojunior]

  • Fix typo. [joaojunior]

  • Sudo=true in .travis.yml to install elasticsearch from apt-get. [joaojunior]

  • Fix .travis. [joaojunior]

  • Add logging in __init__ tests elasticsearch. [joaojunior]

  • Get changes from Master to resolve conflicts. [joaojunior]

  • Install elasticsearch1.7 via apt. [joaojunior]

  • Update Files to run tests in Elasticsearch2.x. [joaojunior]

  • Refactoring the code in pull request #1336 . This pull request is to permit use ElasticSearch 2.X. [joaojunior]

  • Improved custom object identifier test. [Chris Adams]

    This provides an example for implementors and ensures that failing to use the custom class would cause a test failure.

  • Update management backend documentation for --using [flinkflonk]

    Thanks to @flinkflonk for the patch!

    Closes #1215

  • Fix filtered "more like this" queries (#1459) [David Cook]

    Now the Solr backend correctly handles a more_like_this() query which is subsequently filter()-ed.

    Thanks to @divergentdave for the patch and tests!

  • ReStructuredText link format fixes. (#1458) [John Heasly]

  • Add note to Backend Support docs about lack of ES 5.X support. (#1457) [John Heasly]

  • Replace deprecated Point.get_coords() calls. [Chris Adams]

    This works as far back as Django 1.8, which is the earliest which we support.

    See #1454

  • Use setuptools_scm to manage package version numbers. [Chris Adams]

v2.5.1 (2016-10-28)


  • Support for Django 1.10. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to Morgan Aubert (@ellmetha) for the patch

    Closes #1434 Closes #1437 Closes #1445


  • Contains filter, add endswith filter. [Antony]

    • __contains now works in a more intuitive manner (the previous behaviour remains the default for = shortcut queries and can be requested explicitly with __content)
    • __endswith is now supported as the logical counterpart to __startswith

    Thanks to @antonyr for the patch and @sebslomski for code review and testing.


  • V2.5.1. [Chris Adams]

  • Add support for Django 1.10 (refs: #1437, #1434) [Morgan Aubert]

  • Docs: fix Sphinx hierarchy issue. [Chris Adams]

  • Fix multiprocessing regression in update_index. [Chris Adams]

    4e1e2e1c5df1ed1c5432b9d26fcb9dc1abab71f4 introduced a bug because it used a property name which exists on haystack.ConnectionHandler but not the Django ConnectionHandler class it's modeled on. Long-term, we should rename the Haystack class to something like SearchConnectionHandler to avoid future confusion.

    Closes #1449

  • Doc: cleanup searchindex_api.rst. [Jack Norman]

    Thanks to Jack Norman (@jwnorman) for the patch

  • Merge pull request #1444 from jeremycline/master. [Chris Adams]

    Upgrade setuptools in Travis so urllib3-1.18 installs

  • Upgrade setuptools in Travis so urllib3-1.18 installs. [Jeremy Cline]

    The version of setuptools in Travis is too old to handle <= as an environment marker.

  • Tests: accept Solr/ES config from environment. [Chris Adams]

    This makes it easy to override these values for e.g. running test instances using Docker images with something like this:

    ` TEST_ELASTICSEARCH_1_URL="http://$(docker port elasticsearch-1.7 9200/tcp)/" TEST_SOLR_URL="http://$(docker port solr-6 8983/tcp)/solr/" test_haystack/ `

    See #1408

  • Improve highlight docs for custom options. [Steve Byerly]

v2.5.0 (2016-07-11)


  • SearchQuerySet.set_spelling_query for custom spellcheck. [Chris Adams]

    This makes it much easier to customize the text sent to the backend search engine for spelling suggestions independently from the actual query being executed.

  • Support ManyToManyFields in model_attr lookups. [Arjen Verstoep]

    Thanks to @Terr for the patch

  • update_index will retry after backend failures. [Gilad Beeri]

    Now update_index will retry failures multiple times before aborting with a progressive time delay.

    Thanks to Gilad Beeri (@giladbeeri) for the patch

  • highlight() accepts custom values on Solr and ES. [Chris Adams]

    This allows the default values to be overriden and arbitrary backend-specific parameters may be provided to Solr or ElasticSearch.

    Thanks to @tymofij for the patch

    Closes #1334

  • Allow Routers to return multiple indexes. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to Hugo Chargois (@hchargois) for the patch

    Closes #1337 Closes #934

  • Support for newer versions of Whoosh. [Chris Adams]

  • Split SearchView.create_response into get_context. [Chris Adams]

    This makes it easy to override the default create_response behaviour if you don't want a standard HTML response.

    Thanks @seocam for the patch

    Closes #1338

  • Django 1.9 support thanks to Claude Paroz. [Chris Adams]

  • Create a changelog using gitchangelog. [Chris Adams]

    This uses gitchangelog to generate docs/changelog.rst from our Git commit history using the tags for each version. The configuration is currently tracking upstream exactly except for our version tags being prefixed with "v".


  • Support for Solr 5+ spelling suggestion format. [Chris Adams]

  • Set install requirements for Django versions. [Chris Adams]

    This will prevent accidentally breaking apps when Django 1.10 is released.

    Closes #1375

  • Avoid double-query for queries matching no results. [Chris Adams]

  • Update supported/tested Django versions. [Chris Adams]

    • install_requires uses >=1.8 to match our current test matrix
    • Travis allows failures for Django 1.10 so we can start tracking the upcoming release
  • Make backend subclassing easier. [Chris Adams]

    This change allows the backend build_search_kwargs to accept arbitrary extra arguments, making life easier for authors of SearchQuery or SearchBackend subclasses when they can directly pass a value which is directly supported by the backend search client.

  • Update_index logging & multiprocessing improvements. [Chris Adams]

    • Since older versions of Python are no longer supported we no longer conditionally import multiprocessing (see #1001)
    • Use multiprocessing.log_to_stderr for all messages
    • Remove previously-disabled use of the multiprocessing workers for index removals, allowing the worker code to be simplified
  • Moved signal processor loading to app_config.ready. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to @claudep for the patch

    Closes #1260

  • Handle __in=[] gracefully on Solr. [Chris Adams]

    This commit avoids the need to check whether a list is empty to avoid an error when using it for an __in filter.

    Closes #358 Closes #1311


  • Attribute resolution on models which have a property named all (#1405) [Henrique Chehad]

    Thanks to Henrique Chehad (@henriquechehad) for the patch

    Closes #1404

  • Tests will fall back to the Apache archive server. [Chris Adams]

    The Apache 4.10.4 release was quietly removed from the mirrors without a redirect. Until we have time to add newer Solr releases to the test suite we'll download from the archive and let the Travis build cache store it.

  • Whoosh backend support for RAM_STORE (closes #1386) [Martin Owens]

    Thanks to @doctormo for the patch

  • Unsafe update_worker multiprocessing sessions. [Chris Adams]

    The update_index management command does not handle the multiprocessing environment safely. On POSIX systems, multiprocessing uses fork() which means that when called in a context such as the test suite where the connection has already been used some backends like pysolr or ElasticSearch may have an option socket connected to the search server and that leaves a potential race condition where HTTP requests are interleaved, producing unexpected errors.

    This commit resets the backend connection inside the workers and has been stable across hundreds of runs, unlike the current situation where a single-digit number of runs would almost certainly have at least one failure.

    Other improvements: * Improved sanity checks for indexed documents in management

    command test suite. This wasn’t actually the cause of the problem above but since I wrote it while tracking down the real problem there’s no reason not to use it.

    • update_index now checks that each block dispatched was executed to catch any possible silent failures.

    Closes #1376 See #1001

  • Tests support PyPy. [Chris Adams]

    PyPy has an optimization which causes it to call __len__ when running a list comprehension, which is the same thing Python does for list(iterable). This commit simply changes the test code to always use list the PyPy behaviour matches CPython.

  • Avoid an extra query on empty spelling suggestions. [Chris Adams]

    None was being used as a placeholder to test whether to run a spelling suggestion query but was also a possible response when the backend didn’t return a suggestion, which meant that calling spelling_suggestion() could run a duplicate query.

  • MultiValueField issues with single value (#1364) [Arjen Verstoep]

    Thanks to @terr for the patch!

  • Queryset slicing and reduced code duplication. [Craig de Stigter]

    Now pagination will not lazy-load all earlier pages before returning the result.

    Thanks to @craigds for the patch

    Closes #1269 Closes #960

  • Handle negative timestamps returned from ES. [Chris Adams]

    Elastic search can return negative timestamps for histograms if the dates are pre-1970. This PR properly handles these pre-1970 dates.

    Thanks to @speedplane for the patch

    Closes #1239

  • SearchMixin allows form initial values. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to @ahoho for the patch

    Closes #1319

  • Graceful handling of empty __in= lists on ElasticSearch. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to @boulderdave for the ES version of #1311

    Closes #1335

  • Remove boost which is now unsupported. [Chris Brooke]

  • Fix concurrency issues when building UnifiedIndex. [Chris Adams]

    We were getting this error a lot when under load in a multithreaded wsgi environment:

    Model '%s' has more than one 'SearchIndex`` handling it.

    Turns out the connections in haystack.connections and the UnifiedIndex instance were stored globally. However there is a race condition in when multiple threads both build() at once, resulting in the above error.

    Best fix is to never share the same engine or UnifiedIndex across multiple threads. This commit does that.

    Update views_and_forms.rst

  • Update views_and_forms.rst. [David Karchmer]

    After breaking my head for an hour, I realized the instructions to upgrade to class based views is incorrect. It should indicate that switch from page to page_obj and not page_object

v2.3.2 (2015-11-11)

  • V2.3.2 maintenance update. [Chris Adams]

  • Fix #1253. [choco]

  • V2.3.2 pre-release version bump. [Chris Adams]

  • Allow individual records to be skipped while indexing. [Chris Adams]

    Previously there was no easy way to skip specific objects other than filtering the queryset. This change allows a prepare method to raise SkipDocument after calling methods or making other checks which cannot easily be expressed as database filters.

    Thanks to Felipe Prenholato (@chronossc) for the patch

    Closes #380 Closes #1191

v2.4.1 (2015-10-29)

  • V2.4.1. [Chris Adams]

  • Minimal changes to the example project to allow test use. [Chris Adams]

  • Merge remote-tracking branch 'django-haystack/pr/1261' [Chris Adams]

    The commit in #1252 / #1251 was based on the assumption that the tutorial used the new generic views, which is not yet correct.

    This closes #1261 by restoring the wording and adding some tests to avoid regressions in the future before the tutorial is overhauled.

  • Rename 'page_obj' with 'page' in the tutorial, section Search Template as there is no 'page_obj' in the controller and this results giving 'No results found' in the search. [bboneva]

  • Style cleanup. [Chris Adams]

    • Remove duplicate & unused imports
    • PEP-8 indentation & whitespace
    • Use foo not in bar instead of not foo in bar

    • Make Whoosh message consistent with the other backends
    • Pass exception info to loggers in except: blocks
    • PEP-8
  • Avoid unsafe default value on backend clear() methods. [Chris Adams]

    Having a mutable structure like a list as a default value is unsafe; this commit changes that to the standard None.

  • Merge pull request #1254 from chocobn69/master. [Chris Adams]

    Update for API change in elasticsearch 1.8 (closes #1253)

    Thanks to @chocobn69 for the patch

  • Fix #1253. [choco]

  • Tests: update Solr launcher for changed mirror format. [Chris Adams]

    The Apache mirror-detection script appears to have changed its response format recently. This change handles that and makes future error messages more explanatory.

  • Bump doc version numbers - closes #1105. [Chris Adams]

  • Merge pull request #1252 from rhemzo/master. [Chris Adams]

    Update tutorial.rst (closes #1251)

    Thanks to @rhemzo for the patch

    Makes it easy to include facets into FacetedSearchVIew

  • Bugfixes. [lovmat]

  • Merge pull request #1232 from dlo/patch-1. [Chris Adams]

    Rename elasticsearch-py to elasticsearch in docs

    Thanks to @dlo for the patch

  • Rename elasticsearch-py to elasticsearch in docs. [Dan Loewenherz]

  • Update wording in SearchIndex get_model exception. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to Greg Brown (@gregplaysguitar) for the patch

    Closes #1223

  • Corrected exception wording. [Greg Brown]

  • Allow failures on Python 2.6. [Chris Adams]

    Some of our test dependencies like Mock no longer support it. Pinning Mock==1.0.1 on Python 2.6 should avoid that failure but the days of Python 2.6 are clearly numbered.

  • Travis: stop testing unsupported versions of Django on Python 2.6. [Chris Adams]

  • Use Travis’ matrix support rather than tox. [Chris Adams]

    This avoids a layer of build setup and makes the Travis console reports more useful

  • Tests: update the test version of Solr in use. [Chris Adams]

    4.7.2 has disappeared from most of the Apache mirrors

v2.4.0 (2015-06-09)

  • Release 2.4.0. [Chris Adams]

  • Merge pull request #1208 from ShawnMilo/patch-1. [Chris Adams]

    Fix a typo in the faceting docs

  • Possible typo fix. [Shawn Milochik]

    It seems that this was meant to be results.

  • 2.4.0 release candidate 2. [Chris Adams]

  • Fix Django 1.9 deprecation warnings. [Ilan Steemers]

    • replaced get_model with haystack_get_model which returns the right function depending on the Django version
    • get_haystack_models is now compliant with > Django 1.7

    Closes #1206

  • Documentation: update minimum versions of Django, Python. [Chris Adams]

  • V2.4.0 release candidate. [Chris Adams]

  • Bump version to 2.4.0.dev1. [Chris Adams]

  • Travis: remove Django 1.8 from allow_failures. [Chris Adams]

  • Tests: update test object creation for Django 1.8. [Chris Adams]

    Several of the field tests previously assigned a related test model instance before saving it:

    mock_tag = MockTag(name='primary')
    mock = MockModel()
    mock.tag = mock_tag

    Django 1.8 now validates this dodgy practice and throws an error.

    This commit simply changes it to use create() so the mock_tag will have a pk before assignment.

  • Update AUTHORS. [Chris Adams]

  • Tests: fix deprecated Manager.get_query_set call. [Chris Adams]

  • Updating haystack to test against django 1.8. [Chris Adams]

    Updated version of @troygrosfield's patch updating the test-runner for Django 1.8

    Closes #1175

  • Travis: allow Django 1.8 failures until officially supported. [Chris Adams]

    See #1175

  • Remove support for Django 1.5, add 1.8 to tox/travis. [Chris Adams]

    The Django project does not support 1.5 any more and it's the source of most of our false-positive test failures

  • Use db.close_old_connections instead of close_connection. [Chris Adams]

    Django 1.8 removed the db.close_connection method.

    Thanks to Alfredo Armanini (@phingage) for the patch

  • Fix mistake in calling super TestCase method. [Ben Spaulding]

    Oddly this caused no issue on Django <= 1.7, but it causes numerous errors on Django 1.8.

  • Correct unittest imports from commit e37c1f3. [Ben Spaulding]

  • Prefer stdlib unittest over Django's unittest2. [Ben Spaulding]

    There is no need to fallback to importing unittest2 because Django 1.5 is the oldest Django we support, so django.utils.unittest is guaranteed to exist.

  • Prefer stdlib OrderedDict over Django's SortedDict. [Ben Spaulding]

    The two are not exactly they same, but they are equivalent for Haystack's needs.

  • Prefer stdlib importlib over Django's included version. [Ben Spaulding]

    The app_loading module had to shuffle things a bit. When it was importing the function it raised a [RuntimeError][]. Simply importing the module resolved that.


  • Docs: explain how field boosting interacts with filter. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to @amjoconn for contributing a doc update to help newcomers

    Closes #1043

  • Add tests for values/values_list slicing. [Chris Adams]

    This confirms that #1019 is fixed

  • Update_index: avoid gaps in removal logic. [Chris Adams]

    The original logic did not account for the way removing records interfered with the pagination logic.

    Closes #1194

  • Update_index: don't use workers to remove stale records. [Chris Adams]

    There was only minimal gain to this because, unlike indexing, removal is a simple bulk operation limited by the search engine.

    See #1194 See #1201

  • Remove lxml dependency. [Chris Adams]

    pysolr 3.3.2+ no longer requires lxml, which saves a significant install dependency

  • Allow individual records to be skipped while indexing. [Chris Adams]

    Previously there was no easy way to skip specific objects other than filtering the queryset. This change allows a prepare method to raise SkipDocument after calling methods or making other checks which cannot easily be expressed as database filters.

    Thanks to Felipe Prenholato (@chronossc) for the patch

    Closes #380 Closes #1191

  • Update_index: avoid "MySQL has gone away error" with workers. [Eric Bressler (Platform)]

    This fixes an issue with a stale database connection being passed to a multiprocessing worker when using --remove

    Thanks to @ebressler for the patch

    Closes #1201

  • Depend on pysolr 3.3.1. [Chris Adams]

  • Start-solr-test-server: avoid Travis dependency. [Chris Adams]

    This will now fall back to the current directory when run outside of our Travis-CI environment

  • Fix update_index --remove handling. [Chris Adams]

    • Fix support for custom keys by reusing the stored value rather than regenerating following the default pattern
    • Batch remove operations using the total number of records in the search index rather than the database

    Closes #1185 Closes #1186 Closes #1187

  • Merge pull request #1177 from paulshannon/patch-1. [Chris Adams]

    Update TravisCI link in README

  • Update TravisCI link. [Paul Shannon]

  • Remove method_decorator backport (closes #1155) [Chris Adams]

    This was no longer used anywhere in the Haystack source or documentation

  • Travis: enable APT caching. [Chris Adams]

  • Travis: update download caching. [Chris Adams]

  • App_loading cleanup. [Chris Adams]

    • Add support for Django 1.7+ AppConfig
    • Rename internal app_loading functions to have haystack_ prefix to make it immediately obvious that they are not Django utilities and start
    • Add tests to avoid regressions for apps nested with multiple levels of module hierarchy like raven.contrib.django.raven_compat
    • Refactor app_loading logic to make it easier to remove the legacy compatibility code when we eventually drop support for older versions of Django

    Fixes #1125 Fixes #1150 Fixes #1152 Closes #1153

  • Switch defaults closer to Python 3 defaults. [Chris Adams]

    • Add __future__ imports:

    isort --add_import 'from __future__ import absolute_import, division, print_function, unicode_literals'

    • Add source encoding declaration header
  • use strict PEP-440 dev version. [Chris Adams]

    The previous version was valid as per PEP-440 but triggers a warning in pkg_resources

  • Merge pull request #1146 from kamilmowinski/patch-1. [Chris Adams]

    Fix typo in SearchResult documentation

  • Update searchresult_api.rst. [kamilmowinski]

  • Merge pull request #1143 from wicol/master. [Chris Adams]

    Fix deprecation warnings in Django 1.6.X (thanks @wicol)

  • Fix deprecation warnings in Django 1.6.X. [Wictor]

    Options.model_name was introduced in Django 1.6 together with a deprecation warning:

  • Travis: move tox setup to before_script. [Chris Adams]

    This should cause dependency installation problems to show up as build errors rather than outright failures

  • Update ElasticSearch defaults to allow autocompleting numbers. [Chris Adams]

    Previously the defaults for ElasticSearch used the lowercase tokenizer, which prevented numbers from being autocompleted.

    Thanks to Phill Tornroth (@phill-tornroth) for contributing a patch which changes the default settings to use the standard tokenizer with the lowercase filter

    Closes #1056

  • Update documentation for new class-based views. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to @troygrosfield for the pull-request

    Closes #1139 Closes #1133 See #1130

  • Added documentation for configuring facet behaviour. [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to Philippe Luickx for the contribution

    Closes #1111

  • UnifiedIndex has a stable interface to get all indexes. [Chris Adams]

    Previously it was possible for UnifiedIndexes.indexes to be empty when called before the list had been populated. This change deprecates accessing .indexes directly in favor of a get_indexes() accessor which will call first if necessary.

    Thanks to Phill Tornroth for the patch and tests.

    Closes #851

  • Add support for SQ in SearchQuerySet.narrow() (closes #980) [Chris Adams]

    Thanks to Andrei Fokau (@andreif) for the patch and tests

  • Disable multiprocessing on Python 2.6 (see #1001) [Chris Adams]

    multiprocessing.Pool.join() hangs reliably on Python 2.6 but not any later version tested. Since this is an optional feature we’ll simply disable it

  • Bump version number to 2.4.0-dev. [Chris Adams]

  • Update_index: wait for all pool workers to finish. [Chris Adams]

    There was a race condition where update_index() would return before all of the workers had finished updating Solr. This manifested itself most frequently as Travis failures for the multiprocessing test (see #1001).

  • Tests: Fix ElasticSearch index setup (see #1093) [Chris Adams]

    Previously when clear_elasticsearch_index() was called to reset the tests, this could produce confusing results because it cleared the mappings without resetting the backend’s setup_complete status and thus fields which were expected to have a specific type would end up being inferred

    With this changed test_regression_proper_start_offsets and test_more_like_this no longer fail

  • Update rebuild_index --nocommit handling and add tests. [Chris Adams]

    rebuild_index builds its option list by combining the options from clear_index and update_index. This previously had a manual exclude list for options which were present in both commands to avoid conflicts but the nocommit option wasn't in that list.

    This wasn't tested because our test suite uses call_command rather than invoking the option parser directly.

    This commit also adds tests to confirm that --nocommit will actually pass commit=False to clear_index and update_index.

    Closes #1140 See #1090

  • Support ElasticSearch 1.x distance filter syntax (closes #1003) [Chris Adams]

    The elasticsearch 1.0 release was backwards incompatible with our previous usage.

    Thanks to @dulaccc for the patch adding support.

  • Docs: add Github style guide link to pull request instructions. [Chris Adams]

    The recent Github blog post makes a number of good points:

  • Fixed exception message when resolving model_attr. [Wictor]

    This fixes the error message displayed when model_attr references an unknown attribute.

    Thanks to @wicol for the patch

    Closes #1094

  • Compatibility with Django 1.7 app loader (see #1097) [Chris Adams]

    • Added wrapper around get_model, so that Django 1.7 uses the new app loading mechanism.
    • Added extra model check to prevent that a simple module is treated as model.

    Thanks to Dirk Eschler (@deschler) for the patch.

  • Fix index_fieldname to match documentation (closes #825) [Chris Adams]

    @jarig contributed a fix to ensure that index_fieldname renaming does not interfere with using the field name declared on the index.

  • Add tests for Solr/ES spatial order_by. [Chris Adams]

    This exists primarily to avoid the possibility of breaking compatibility with the inconsistent lat, lon ordering used by Django, Solr and ElasticSearch.

  • Remove undocumented order_by_distance [Chris Adams]

    This path was an undocumented artifact of the original geospatial feature-branch back in the 1.X era. It wasn’t documented and is completely covered by the documented API.

  • ElasticSearch tests: PEP-8 cleanup. [Chris Adams]

  • Implement managers tests for spatial features. [Chris Adams]

    This is largely shadowed by the actual spatial tests but it avoids surprises on the query generation

    • Minor PEP-8
  • Remove unreferenced add_spatial methods. [Chris Adams]

    SolrSearchQuery and ElasticsearchSearchQuery both defined an add_spatial method which was neither called nor documented.

  • Remove legacy httplib/httplib2 references. [Chris Adams]

    We’ve actually delegated the actual work to requests but the docs & tests had stale references

  • Tests: remove legacy spatial backend code. [Chris Adams]

    This has never run since the solr_native_distance backend did not exist and thus the check always failed silently

  • ElasticSearch backend: minor PEP-8 cleanup. [Chris Adams]

  • Get-solr-download-url: fix Python 3 import path. [Chris Adams]

    This allows the scripts to run on systems where Python 3 is the default version

  • Merge pull request #1130 from troygrosfield/master. [Chris Adams]

    Added generic class based search views

    (thanks @troygrosfield)

  • Removed "expectedFailure". [Troy Grosfield]

  • Minor update. [Troy Grosfield]

  • Added tests for the generic search view. [Troy Grosfield]

  • Hopefully last fix for django version checking. [Troy Grosfield]

  • Fix for django version check. [Troy Grosfield]

  • Adding fix for previously test for django 1.7. [Troy Grosfield]

  • Adding py34-django1.7 to travis. [Troy Grosfield]

  • Test for the elasticsearch client. [Troy Grosfield]

  • Added unicode_literals import for py 2/3 compat. [Troy Grosfield]

    Adds a --nocommit arg to the update_index, clear_index and rebuild_index management command.

  • Adds a --nocommit arg to the update_index, clear_index and rebuild_index management commands. [Andrew Schoen]

  • Merge pull request #1103 from pkafei/master. [Chris Adams]

    Update documentation to reference Solr 4.x

  • Changed link to official archive site. [Portia Burton]

  • Added path to schema.xml. [Portia Burton]

  • Added latest version of Solr to documentation example. [Portia Burton]

  • Update ElasticSearch version requirements. [Chris Adams]

  • Elasticsearch's python api by default has _source set to False, this causes keyerror mentioned in bug #1019. [xsamurai]

  • Solr: clear() won’t call optimize when commit=False. [Chris Adams]

    An optimize will trigger a commit implicitly so we’ll avoid calling it when the user has requested not to commit

  • Bumped __version__ (closes #1112) [Dan Watson]

  • Travis: allow PyPy builds to fail. [Chris Adams]

    This is currently unstable and it's not a first-class supported platform yet

  • Tests: fix Solr server tarball test. [Chris Adams]

    On a clean Travis instance, the tarball won't exist

  • Tests: have Solr test server startup script purge corrupt tarballs. [Chris Adams]

    This avoids tests failing if a partial download is cached by Travis

  • Merge pull request #1084 from streeter/admin-mixin. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Document and add an admin mixin

  • Document support for searching in the Django admin. [Chris Streeter]

  • Add some spacing. [Chris Streeter]

  • Create an admin mixin for external use. [Chris Streeter]

    There are cases where one might have a different base admin class, and wants to use the search features in the admin as well. Creating a mixin makes this a bit cleaner.

v2.3.1 (2014-09-22)

  • V2.3.1. [Chris Adams]

  • Tolerate non-importable apps like django-debug-toolbar. [Chris Adams]

    If your installed app isn't even a valid Python module, haystack will issue a warning but continue.

    Thanks to @gojomo for the patch

    Closes #1074 Closes #1075

  • Allow apps without on Django <1.7. [Chris Adams]

    This wasn't officially supported by Django prior to 1.7 but is used by some third-party apps such as Grappelli

    This commit adds a somewhat contrived test app to avoid future regressions by ensuring that the test suite always has an application installed which does not have

    See #1073

v2.3.0 (2014-09-19)

  • Travis: Enable IRC notifications. [Chris Adams]

  • Fix app loading call signature. [Chris Adams]

    Updated code from #1016 to ensure that get_models always returns a list (previously on Django 1.7 it would return the bare model when called with an argument of the form app.modelname)

    Add some basic tests

  • App loading: use ImproperlyConfigured for bogus app names. [Chris Adams]

    This never worked but we’ll be more consistent and return ImproperlyConfigured instead of a generic LookupError

  • App Loading: don’t suppress app-registry related exceptions. [Chris Adams]

    This is just asking for trouble in the future. If someone comes up with an edge case, we should add a test for it

  • Remove Django version pin from install_requires. [Chris Adams]

  • Django 1.7 support for app discovery. [Chris Adams]

    • Refactored @Xaroth’s patch from #1015 into a separate utils module
    • PEP-8 cleanup
  • Start the process of updating for v2.3 release. [Chris Adams]

  • Django 1.7 compatibility for model loading. [Chris Adams]

    This refactors the previous use of model _meta.module_name and updates the tests so the previous change can be tested safely.

    Closes #981 Closes #982

  • Update tox Django version pins. [Chris Adams]

  • Mark expected failures for Django 1.7 (see #1069) [Chris Adams]

  • Django 1.7: ensure that the app registry is ready before tests are loaded. [Chris Adams]

    The remaining test failures are due to some of the oddities in model mocking, which can be solved by overhauling the way we do tests and mocks.

  • Tests: Whoosh test overhaul. [Chris Adams]

    • Move repetitive filesystem reset logic into WhooshTestCase which cleans up after itself
    • Use mkdtemp instead of littering up the current directory with a 'tmp' subdirectory
    • Use skipIf rather than expectFailure on test_writable to disable it only when STORAGE=ram rather than always
  • Unpin elasticsearch library version for testing. [Chris Adams]

  • Tests: add MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES for Django 1.7. [Chris Adams]

  • Use get_model_ct_tuple to generate template name. [Chris Adams]

  • Refactor simple_backend to use get_model_ct_tuple. [Chris Adams]

  • Haystack admin: refactor to use get_model_ct_tuple. [Chris Adams]

  • Consolidate model meta references to use get_model_ct (see #981) [Chris Adams]

    This use of a semi-public Django interface will break in Django 1.7 and we can start preparing by using the existing haystack.utils.get_model_ct function instead of directly accessing it everywhere.

  • Refactor get_model_ct to handle Django 1.7, add tuple version. [Chris Adams]

    We have a mix of model _meta access which usually expects strings but in a few places needs raw values. This change adds support for Django 1.7 (see and allows raw tuple access to handle other needs in the codebase

  • Add Django 1.7 warning to Sphinx docs as well. [Chris Adams]

v2.2.1 (2014-09-03)

  • Mark 2.2.X as incompatible with Django 1.7. [Chris Adams]

  • Tests: don't suppress Solr stderr logging. [Chris Adams]

    This will make easier to tell why Solr sometimes goes away on Travis

  • Update Travis & Tox config. [Chris Adams]

    • Tox: wait for Solr to start before running tests
    • Travis: allow solr & pip downloads to be cached
    • Travis now uses instead of travis-solr
    • Test Solr configuration uses port 9001 universally as per the documentation
    • Change to change into its containing directory, which also allows us to remove the realpath dependency
    • Test Solr invocation matches pysolr
      • Use get-solr-download-url script to pick a faster mirror

  • Merge pull request #1025 from reinout/patch-1. [Chris Adams]

    Fixed typo in templatetag docs example (thanks to @reinout)

  • Fixed typo in example. [Reinout van Rees]

    It should be css_class in the template tag example instead of just class. (It is mentioned correctly in the syntax line earlier).

v2.2.0 (2014-08-03)

  • Release v2.2.0. [Chris Adams]

  • Test refactor - merge all the tests into one test suite (closes #951) [Chris Adams]

    Major refactor by @honzakral which stabilized the test suite, makes it easier to run and add new tests and somewhat faster, too.

    • Merged all the tests
    • Mark tests as skipped when a backend is not available (e.g. no ElasticSearch or Solr connection)
    • Massively simplified test runner (python test)

    Minor updates: * Travis:

    • Test Python 3.4
    • Use Solr 4.6.1
    • Simplified legacy test code which can now be replaced by the test utilities in newer versions of Django
    • Update ElasticSearch client & tests for ES 1.0+
    • Add option for SearchModelAdmin to specify the haystack connection to use
    • Fixed a bug with RelatedSearchQuerySet caching using multiple instances (429d234)
  • RelatedSearchQuerySet: move class globals to instance properties. [Chris Adams]

    This caused obvious failures in the test suite and presumably elsewhere when multiple RelatedSearchQuerySet instances were in use

  • Merge pull request #1032 from maikhoepfel/patch-1. [Justin Caratzas]

    Drop unused variable when post-processing results

  • Drop unused variable when post-processing results. [Maik Hoepfel]

    original_results is not used in either method, and can be safely removed.

  • 404 when initially retrieving mappings is ok. [Honza Král]

  • Ignore 400 (index already exists) when creating an index in Elasticsearch. [Honza Král]

  • ElasticSearch: update clear() for 1.x+ syntax. [Chris Adams]

    As per this should be nested inside a top-level query block:

    {“query”: {“query_string”: …}}

  • Add setup.cfg for common linters. [Chris Adams]

  • ElasticSearch: avoid KeyError for empty spelling. [Chris Adams]

    It was possible to get a KeyError when spelling suggestions were requested but no suggestions are returned by the backend.

    Small docs fix for spatial search example code

  • Fix typo with instantiating Distance units. [Graham Kaplan]

  • Solr backend: correct usage of pysolr delete. [Chris Adams]

    We use HAYSTACK_ID_FIELD in other places but the value passed to pysolr's delete() method must use the keyword argument id:

    Although the value is passed to Solr an XML tag named <id> it will always be checked against the actual uniqueKey field even if it uses a custom name:

    Closes #943

  • Add a note on elasticsearch-py versioning with regards to 1.0. [Honza Král]

  • Ignore 404 when removing a document from elasticsearch. [Honza Král]

    Fixes #942

  • Ignore missing index during .clear() [Honza Král]

    404 in indices.delete can only mean that the index is there, no issue for a delete operation

    Fixes #647

  • Tests: remove legacy targets. [Chris Adams]

    • Django 1.4 is no longer supported as per the documentation
    • Travis: use Python 3.3 targets instead of 3.2
  • Tests: update pysolr requirement to 3.1.1. [Chris Adams]

    3.1.1 shipped a fix for a change in the Solr response format for the content extraction handler

  • Merge pull request #888 from acdha/888-solr-field-list-regression. [Chris Adams]

    Solr / ElasticSearch backends: restore run() kwargs handling

    This fixes an earlier regression which did not break functionality but made .values() and .values_list() much less of an optimization than intended.

    #925 will be a more comprehensive refactor but this is enough of a performance win to be worth including if a point release happens before #925 lands.

  • ElasticSearch backend: run() kwargs are passed directly to search backend. [Chris Adams]

    This allows customization by subclasses and also fixes #888 by ensuring that the custom field list prepared by ValuesQuerySet and ValuesListQuerySet is actually used.

  • Solr backend: run() kwargs are passed directly to search backend. [Chris Adams]

    This allows customization by subclasses and also fixes #888 by ensuring that the custom field list prepared by ValuesQuerySet and ValuesListQuerySet is actually used.

  • Tests: skip Solr content extraction with old PySolr. [Chris Adams]

    Until pysolr 3.1.1 ships there's no point in running the Solr content extraction tests because they'll fail:


  • Make sure DJANGO_CT and DJANGO_ID fields are not analyzed. [Honza Král]

  • No need to store fields separately in elasticsearch. [Honza Král]

    That will justlead to fields being stored once - as part of _source as well as in separate index that would never be used by haystack (would be used only in special cases when requesting just that field, which can be, with minimal overhead, still just extracted from the _source as it is).

  • Remove extra code. [Honza Král]

  • Simplify mappings for elasticsearch fields. [Honza Král]

    • don't specify defaults (index:analyzed for strings, boost: 1.0)
    • omit extra settings that have little or negative effects (term_vector:with_positions_offsets)
    • only use type-specific settings (not_analyzed makes no sense for non-string types)

    Fixes #866

  • Add narrow queries as individual subfilter to promote caching. [Honza Král]

    Each narrow query will be cached individually which means more cache reuse

  • Doc formatting fix. [Honza Král]

  • Allow users to pass in additional kwargs to Solr and Elasticsearch backends. [Honza Král]

    Fixes #674, #862

  • Whoosh: allow multiple order_by() fields. [Chris Adams]

    The Whoosh backend previously prevented the use of more than one order_by field. It now allows multiple fields as long as every field uses the same sort direction.

    Thanks to @qris, @overflow for the patch

    This was previously relying on the assumption that a query would not match, which is Solr version dependent, rather than simply confirming that no exception is raised

  • Tests: update Solr schema to match current build_solr_schema. [Chris Adams]

  • Added test for autocomplete whitespace fix. [justin caratzas]

  • Fixed autocomplete() method: spaces in query. [Ivan Virabyan]

  • Fixed basepython for tox envs, thanks --showconfig. [justin caratzas]

    also, added latest django 1.4 release, which doesn't error out currently.

    Downgraded python3.3 to python3.2, as thats what the lastest debian stable includes. I'm working on compiling pypy and python3.3 on the test box, so those will probably be re-added as time allows.

    failing tests: still solr context extraction + spatial

  • Fixed simple backend for django 1.6, _fields was removed. [justin caratzas]

  • [tox] run tests for 1.6, fix test modules so they are found by the new test runner. [justin caratzas]

    These changes are backwards-compatible with django 1.5. As of this commit, the only failing tests are the Solr extractraction test, and the spatial tests.

  • Switch solr configs to solr 4. [justin caratzas]

    almost all tests passing, but spatial not working

  • Update solr schema template to fix stopwords_en.txt relocation. [Patrick Altman]

    Seems that in versions >3.6 and >4 stopwords_en.txt moved to a new location. This won't be backwards compatible for older versions of solr.

    Addresses issues #558, #560 In addition, issue #671 references this problem

    This version becomes a "strict" version under PEP386 and should be recognized by install/packaging tools (such as distribute/distutils/setuptools) as newer than 2.0.0-beta. This will also help making small increments of the version which brings some sanity when using an update from HEAD and ensure that things will upgrade alright.

    If you tried to run build_solr_schema with a backend that supports schema building, but was not Solr (like Whoosh), then you would get an invalid schema. This fix raises the ImproperlyConfigured exception with a proper message.

  • Merge pull request #742 from bigjust/simple-backend-score-fix. [Justin Caratzas]

  • ElasticSearch: fix AltParser test. [Chris Adams]

    AltParser queries are still broken but that fucntionality has only been listed as supported on Solr.

  • Better Solr AltParser quoting (closes #730) [Chris Adams]

    Previously the Solr AltParser implementation embedded the search term as an attribte inside the {!…} construct, which required it to be doubly escaped.

    This change contributed by @ivirabyan moves the value outside the query, requiring only our normal quoting:

    q=(_query_:"{!edismax}Assassin's Creed")

    instead of:

    q=(_query_:"{!edismax v='Assassin's Creed'}")

    Thanks @ivirabyan for the patch!

  • Solr: use nested query syntax for AltParser queries. [Chris Adams]

    The previous implementation would, given a query like this:

    sqs.filter(content=AltParser('dismax', 'library', qf="title^2 text" mm=1))

    generate a query like this:

    {!dismax v=library qf="title^2 text" mm=1}

    This works in certain situations but causes Solr to choke while parsing it when Haystack wraps this term in parentheses:

    org.apache.lucene.queryParser.ParseException: Cannot parse '({!dismax mm=1 qf='title^2 text institution^0.8' v=library})':
    Encountered " &lt;RANGEEX_GOOP&gt; "qf=\'title^1.25 "" at line 1, column 16.

    The solution is to use the nested query syntax described here:

    This will produce a query like this, which works with Solr 3.6.2:

    (_query_:"{!edismax mm=1 qf='title^1.5 text institution^0.5' v=library}")

    Leaving the actual URL query string looking like this:

    • Tests updated for the new query generation output
    • A Solr backend task was added to actually run the dismax queries and verify that we're not getting Solr 400s errors due to syntax gremlins
  • Pass active backend to index queryset calls (closes #534) [Chris Adams]

    Now the Index index_queryset() and read_queryset() methods will be called with the active backend name so they can optionally perform backend-specific filtering.

    This is extremely useful when using something like Solr cores to maintain language specific backends, allowing an Index to select the appropriate documents for each language:

    def index_queryset(self, using=None):
        return Post.objects.filter(language=using)
    • clear_index, update_index and rebuild_index all default to processing every backend. --using may now be provided multiple times to select a subset of the configured backends.
    • Added examples to the Multiple Index documentation page

  • Reset database connections on each process on update_index when using --workers. [Diego Búrigo Zacarão]

  • Moved the build_queryset method to SearchIndex. [Alex Vidal]

    This method is used to build the queryset for indexing operations. It is copied from the build_queryset function that lived in the update_index management command.

    Making this change allows developers to modify the queryset used for indexing even when a date filter is necessary. See tests/core/ for tests.

  • Fixed a bug where Indexable could be mistakenly recognized as a discoverable class. Thanks to twoolie for the original patch! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug with query construction. Thanks to dstufft for the report! [Daniel Lindsley]

    This goes back to erroring on the side of too many parens, where there weren't enough before. The engines will no-op them when they're not important.

    I have anxiously waited to add this feature for almost 3 years now. Support is finally present in more than one backend & I was generously given some paid time to work on implementing this.

    Thanks go out to:

    • CMGdigital, who paid for ~50% of the development of this feature & were awesomely supportive.
    • Jannis Leidel (jezdez), who did the original version of this patch & was an excellent sounding board.
    • Adam Fast, for patiently holding my hand through some of the geospatial confusions & for helping me verify GeoDjango functionality.
    • Justin Bronn, for the great work he originally did on GeoDjango, which served as a point of reference/inspiration on the API.

  • Spruced up the layout on the new DjDT panel. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed compatibility with Django pre-1.4 trunk. * The MAX_SHOW_ALL_ALLOWED variable is no longer available, and hence causes an ImportError with Django versions higher 1.3. * The "list_max_show_all" attribute on the ChangeList object is used instead. * This patch maintains compatibility with Django 1.3 and lower by trying to import the MAX_SHOW_ALL_ALLOWED variable first. [Aram Dulyan]

  • Updated for the new panel bits. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a basic DjDT panel for Haystack. Thanks to robhudson for planting the seed that Haystack should bundle this! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug with Whoosh's edge n-gram support to be consistent with the implementation in the other engines. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added celery-haystack to Other Apps. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed auto_query so it can be run on other, non-content fields. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed extra loops through the field list for a slight performance gain. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Moved EXCLUDED_INDEXES to a per-backend setting. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD-INCOMPATIBLE: The default filter is now __contains (in place of __exact). [Daniel Lindsley]

    If you were relying on this behavior before, simply add __exact to the fieldname.

  • BACKWARD-INCOMPATIBLE: All "concrete" SearchIndex classes must now mixin indexes.Indexable as well in order to be included in the index. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added tox to the mix. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Allow for less configuration. Thanks to jeromer & cyberdelia for the reports! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed up the management commands to show the right alias & use the default better. Thanks to jeromer for the report! [Daniel Lindsley]

    This option defaults to True for compatibility & to prevent cases where lost connections can break reindexes/searches.

  • Fixed the simple backend to not throw an exception when handed an SQ. Thanks to diegobz for the report! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Whoosh now supports More Like This! Requires Whoosh 1.8.4. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated AUTHORS to reflect the Kent's involvement in multiple index support. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD-INCOMPATIBLE: Added multiple index support to Haystack, which enables you to talk to more than one search engine in the same codebase. Thanks to: [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed update_index so that it warns you if your SearchIndex.get_queryset returns an unusable object. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed Python 2.3 compat code & bumped requirements for the impending release. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added treyhunner to AUTHORS. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Improved the way selected_facets are handled. [Chris Adams]

    • selected_facets may be provided multiple times.
    • Facet values are quoted to avoid backend confusion (i.e. author:Joe Blow is seen by Solr as author:Joe AND Blow rather than the expected author:"Joe Blow")
  • Add test for Whoosh field boost. [Trey Hunner]

  • Enable field boosting with Whoosh backend. [Trey Hunner]

  • Fixed the Solr & Whoosh backends to use the correct site when processing results. Thanks to Madan Thangavelu for the original patch! [Daniel Lindsley]

    This reverts commit 106758f88a9bc5ab7e505be62d385d876fbc52fe.

  • Shifted handle_registrations into [Daniel Lindsley]

    For historical reasons, it was (wrongly) kept & run in This should help fix many people's issues with it running too soon.

  • Pulled out EmptyResults for testing elsewhere. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug where boolean filtering wouldn't work properly on Whoosh. Thanks to alexrobbins for pointing it out! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added better autocomplete support to Haystack. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed SearchForm to be more permissive of missing form data, especially when the form is unbound. Thanks to cleifer for pointing this out! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Bumped revision. [Daniel Lindsley]

v1.1 (2010-11-23)

  • Bumped version to v1.1! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • The build_solr_schema command can now write directly to a file. Also includes tests for the new overrides. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Haystack's reserved field names are now configurable. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD-INCOMPATIBLE: auto_query has changed so that only double quotes cause exact match searches. Thanks to craigds for the report! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added docs on handling content-type specific output in results. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added tests for content_type. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added docs on boosting. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed facet fieldname lookups to use the proper fieldname. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed unneeded imports from the Solr backend. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Further revamping of faceting. Each field type now has a faceted variant that's created either with faceted=True or manual initialization. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This should also make user-created field types possible, as many of the gross isinstance checks were removed.

  • Fixes SearchQuerySet not pickleable. Patch by oyiptong, tests by toastdriven. [oyiptong]

  • Added the ability to remove objects from the index that are no longer in the database to the update_index management command. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed how you query for facets and how how they are presented in the facet counts. Allows customization of facet field names in indexes. [Travis Cline]

    Lightly backward-incompatible (git only).

  • Made it easier to override SearchView/SearchForm behavior when no query is present. [Daniel Lindsley]

    No longer do you need to override both SearchForm & SearchView if you want to return all results. Use the built-in SearchView, provide your own custom SearchForm subclass & override the no_query_found method per the docstring.

  • Don't assume that any pk castable to an integer should be an integer. [Carl Meyer]

  • Fetching a list of all fields now produces correct results regardless of dict-ordering. Thanks to carljm & veselosky for the report! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added notes about what is needed to make schema-building independent of dict-ordering. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Sorted model order matters. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Prevent Whoosh from erroring if the end_offset is less than or equal to 0. Thanks to zifot for the report! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed insecure use of eval from the Whoosh backend. Thanks to SmileyChris for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Disallow indexed=False on FacetFields. Thanks to jefftriplett for the report! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added FacetField & changed the way facets are processed. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Facet data is no longer quietly duplicated just before it goes into the index. Instead, full fields are created (with all the standard data & methods) to contain the faceted information.

    This change is backward-compatible, but allows for better extension, not requiring data duplication into an unfaceted field and a little less magic.

  • EmptyQuerySet.facet_counts() won't hit the backend. [Chris Adams]

    This avoids an unnecessary extra backend query displaying the default faceted search form.

  • TextMate fail. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed __name__ to an attribute on SearchView to work with decorators. Thanks to trybik for the report! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed some wording on the tutorial to indicate where the data template should go. Thanks for the suggestion Davepar! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Merge branch 'whoosh-1.1' [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Final cleanup before merging Whoosh 1.1 branch! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Final Whoosh 1.1.1 fixes. Waiting for an official release of Whoosh & hand testing, then this ought to be merge-able. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Upgraded the Whoosh backend to 1.1. Still one remaining test failure and two errors. Waiting on mchaput's thoughts/patches. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Mistakenly committed this change. This bug is not fixed. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Better handling of attempts at loading backends when the various supporting libraries aren't installed. Thanks to traviscline for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed random test failures from not running the Solr tests in awhile. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed mlt test to use a set comparison to eliminate failures due to ordering differences. [Travis Cline]

  • Sped up Solr backend tests by moving away from RealTimeSearchIndex since it was adding objects to Solr when loading fixtures. [Travis Cline]

  • Automatically add suggestion to the context if HAYSTACK_INCLUDE_SPELLING is set. Thanks to notanumber for the suggestion! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added apollo13 to AUTHORS for the SearchForm.__init__ cleanup. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed copy-paste foul in Installing Search Engines docs. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed the simple backend to return SearchResult instances, not just bare model instances. Thanks to Agos for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed the clear_index management command to respect --verbosity. Thanks to kylemacfarlane for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered the simple backend to only search textual fields. This makes the backend work consistently across all databases and is likely the desired behavior anyhow. Thanks to kylemacfarlane for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug in the Highlighter which would double-highlight HTML tags. Thanks to EmilStenstrom for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated management command docs to mention all options that are accepted. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered the Whoosh backend to correctly clear the index when using the RAMStorage backend. Thanks to kylemacfarlane for the initial patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added to the "Who Uses" docs. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added an settings override on HAYSTACK_LIMIT_TO_REGISTERED_MODELS as a possible performance optimization. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added the ability to pickle SearchResult objects. Thanks to dedsm for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added docs and fixed tests on the backend loading portions. Thanks to kylemacfarlane for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed bug with build_solr_schema where stored=False would be ignored. Thanks to johnthedebs for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Somewhere, a reference to the old index was hanging around causing incorrect failures.

  • The Whoosh backed now uses the AsyncWriter, which ought to provide better performance. Requires Whoosh 0.3.15 or greater. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a way to pull the correct fieldname, regardless if it's been overridden or not. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added docs about adding new fields. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed a painful isinstance check which should make non-standard usages easier. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated docs regarding reserved field names in Haystack. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Pushed some of the new faceting bits down in the implementation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed unnecessary fields from the Solr schema template. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Forms with initial data now display it when used with SearchView. Thanks to osirius for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • App order is now consistent with INSTALLED_APPS when running update_index. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated docs to reflect the recommended way to do imports in when defining SearchIndex classes. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This is not my preferred style but reduces the import errors some people experience.

  • Little bits of cleanup related to testing. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed an error in the docs related to pre-rendering data. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • The same field can now have multiple query facets. Thanks to bfirsh for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added schema for testing Solr. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a string interpolation bug when adding an invalid data facet. Thanks to simonw for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed the default highlighter to give slightly better results, especially with short strings. Thanks to RobertGawron for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added --noinput flag to clear_index. Thanks to aljosa for the suggestion. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated the example in the template to be a little more real-world and user friendly. Thanks to j0hnsmith for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug with the Whoosh backend where scores weren't getting populated correctly. Thanks to horribtastic for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed EmptySearchQuerySet so it returns an empty list when slicing instead of mistakenly running queries. Thanks to askfor for reporting this bug. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Switched SearchView & FacetedSearchView to use EmptySearchQuerySet (instead of a regular list) when there are no results. Thanks to acdha for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added RedditGifts to "Who Uses". [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added Winding Road to "Who Uses". [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added ryszard's full name to AUTHORS. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added an advanced setting for disabling Haystack's initialization in the event of a conflict with other apps. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered SearchForm to use .is_valid() instead of .clean(), which is a more idiomatic/correct usage. Thanks to askfor for the suggestion. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added MANIFEST to ignore list. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed Django 1.0 compatibility when using the Solr backend. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Marked Haystack as 1.0 final. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added docs about SearchQuerySet.highlight. [toastdriven]

  • Added further docs on RealTimeSearchIndex. [toastdriven]

  • Added documentation on the RealTimeSearchIndex class. [toastdriven]

  • Fixed the documentation for the arguments on the highlight tag. Thanks to lucalenardi for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed tutorial to mention where the NoteSearchIndex should be placed. Thanks to bkeating for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Marked Haystack as 1.0.0 release candidate 1. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Haystack now requires Whoosh 0.3.5. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Last minute documentation cleanup. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added documentation about the management commands that come with Haystack. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added docs on the template tags included with Haystack. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added docs on highlighting. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed some unneeded legacy code that was causing conflicts when Haystack was used with apps that load all models (such as django- cms2, localemiddleware or django-transmeta). [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed old code from the update_index command. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered spelling suggestion test to something a little more consistent. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added tests for slicing the end of a RelatedSearchQuerySet. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed case where SearchQuerySet.more_like_this would fail when using deferred Models. Thanks to Alex Gaynor for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added default logging bits to prevent "No handlers found" message. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD-INCOMPATIBLE: Renamed reindex management command to update_index, renamed clear_search_index management command to clear_index and added a rebuild_index command to both clear & reindex. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD-INCOMPATIBLE: SearchIndex no longer hooks up post_save/post_delete signals for the model it's registered with. [Daniel Lindsley]

    If you use SearchIndex, you will have to manually cron up a reindex (soon to become update_index) management command to periodically refresh the data in your index.

    If you were relying on the old behavior, please use RealTimeSearchIndex instead, which does hook up those signals.

  • Ensured that, if a MultiValueField is marked as indexed=False in Whoosh, it ought not to post-process the field. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Ensured data going into the indexes round-trips properly. Fixed DateField/DateTimeField handling for all backends and MultiValueField handling in Whoosh. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a customizable highlight template tag plus an underlying Highlighter implementation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added more documentation about using custom SearchIndex.prepare_FOO methods. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • With Whoosh 0.3.5+, the number of open files is greatly reduced. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Corrected example in docs about RelatedSearchQuerySet. Thanks to askfor for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered SearchResult objects to fail gracefully when the model/object can't be found. Thanks to akrito for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added Brick Design to Who Uses. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated backend support docs slightly. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added the ability to combine SearchQuerySet`s via `& or |. Thanks to reesefrancis for the suggestion. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Revised the most of the tutorial. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Better documented how user-provided data should be sanitized. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fleshed out the SearchField documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed formatting on SearchField documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added basic SearchField documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

    More information about the kwargs and usage will be eventually needed.

  • Bumped the ulimit so Whoosh tests pass consistently on Mac OS X. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed the default kwarg in SearchField (and subclasses) to work properly from a user's perspective. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD-INCOMPATIBLE: Fixed raw_search to cooperate when paginating/slicing as well as many other conditions. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This no longer immediately runs the query, nor pokes at any internals. It also now takes into account other details, such as sorting & faceting.

  • Fixed a bug in the Whoosh backend where slicing before doing a hit count could cause strange results when paginating. Thanks to kylemacfarlane for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • The Whoosh tests now deal with the same data set as the Solr tests and cover various aspects better. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Started to pull out the real-time, signal-based updates out of the main SearchIndex class. Backward compatible for now. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed docs to include utils documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated instructions for installing pysolr. Thanks to sboisen for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added acdha to AUTHORS for previous commit. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added exception handling to the Solr Backend to silently fail/log when Solr is unavailable. Thanks to acdha for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • The more_like_this tag is now tested within the suite. Also has lots of cleanup for the other Solr tests. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • On both the Solr & Whoosh backends, don't do an update if there's nothing being updated. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Moved Haystack's internal fields out of the backends and into SearchIndex.prepare. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This is both somewhat more DRY as well as a step toward Haystack being useful to non-Django projects.

  • Fixed a bug in the build_schema where fields that aren't supposed to be indexed are still getting post-procesed by Solr. Thanks to Jonathan Slenders for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added HUGE to Who Uses. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed bug in Whoosh where it would always generate spelling suggestions off the full query even when given a different query string to check against. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Simplified the SQ object and removed a limitation on kwargs/field names that could be passed in. Thanks to traviscline for the patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Documentation on should_update fixed to match the new signature. Thanks to kylemacfarlane for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed missing words in Best Practices documentation. Thanks to frankwiles for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • The update_object method now passes along kwargs as needed to the should_update method. Thanks to askfor for the suggestion. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated docs about the removal of the Whoosh fork. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed extraneous BadSearchIndex3 from test suite. Thanks notanumber! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • We actually want repr, not str. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Pushed the model_attr check lower down into the `SearchField`s and make it occur later, so that exceptions come at a point where Django can better deal with them. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed attempting to access an invalid model_attr. Thanks to notanumber for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added SQ objects (replacing the QueryFilter object) as the means to generate queries/query fragments. Thanks to traviscline for all the hard work. [Daniel Lindsley]

    The SQ object is similar to Django's Q object and allows for arbitrarily complex queries. Only backward incompatible if you were relying on the SearchQuery/QueryFilter APIs.

  • Reformatted debugging docs a bit. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added debugging information about the Whoosh lock error. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Brought the TODO up to date. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a warning to the documentation about how __startswith may not always provide the expected results. Thanks to codysoyland for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added debugging documentation, with more examples coming in the future. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a new basic_search view as a both a working example of how to write traditional views and as a thread-safe view, which the class- based ones may/may not be. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed sample template in the documentation. Thanks to lemonad for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated documentation to include a couple more Sphinx directives. Index is now more useful. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Made links more obvious in documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added an example_project demonstrating how a sample project might be setup. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed load_backend to use the argument passed instead of always the settings.HAYSTACK_SEARCH_ENGINE. Thanks to newgene for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Regression where sometimes narrow_queries got juggled into a list when it should be a set everywhere. Thanks tcline & ericholscher for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated the Whoosh backend's version requirement to reflect the fully working version of Whoosh. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • With the latest SVN version of Whoosh (r344), SearchQuerySet() now works properly in Whoosh. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a FacetedModelSearchForm. Thanks to mcroydon for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added translation capabilities to the SearchForm variants. Thanks to hejsan for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added AllForLocal to Who Uses. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • The underlying caching has been fixed so it no longer has to fill the entire cache before it to ensure consistency. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This results in significantly faster slicing and reduced memory usage. The test suite is more complete and ensures this functionality better.

    This also removes load_all_queryset from the main SearchQuerySet implementation. If you were relying on this behavior, you should use RelatedSearchQuerySet instead.

  • Log search queries with DEBUG = True for debugging purposes, similar to what Django does. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated LJ's Who Uses information. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added Sunlight Labs & NASA to the Who Uses list. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added Eldarion to the Who Uses list. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • When more of the cache is populated, provide a more accurate len() of the SearchQuerySet. This ought to only affect advanced usages, like excluding previously-registered models or load_all_queryset. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug where SearchQuerySet`s longer than `REPR_OUTPUT_SIZE wouldn't include a note about truncation when __repr__ is called. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added the ability to choose which site is used when reindexing. Thanks to SmileyChris for pointing this out and the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed the lack of a __unicode__ method on SearchResult objects. Thanks to mint_xian for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Typo'd the changes. Thanks to jlilly for catching that. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Converted all query strings to Unicode for Whoosh. Thanks to simonw108 for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added template tags to Thanks to Bogdan for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added two more tests to the Whoosh backend, just to make sure. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Corrected the way Whoosh handles order_by. Thanks to Rowan for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • For the Whoosh backend, ensure the directory is writable by the current user to try to prevent failed writes. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a better label to the main search form field. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Bringing the Whoosh backend up to version 0.3.0b14. This version of Whoosh has better query parsing, faster indexing and, combined with these changes, should cause fewer disruptions when used in a multiprocess/multithreaded environment. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added optional argument to spelling_suggestion that lets you provide a different query than the one built by the SearchQuerySet. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Useful for passing along a raw user-provided query, especially when there is a lot of post-processing done.

  • SearchResults now obey the type of data chosen in their corresponding field in the SearchIndex if present. Thanks to evgenius for the original report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug in the Solr backend where submitting an empty string to search returned an ancient and incorrect datastructure. Thanks kapa77 for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug where the cache would never properly fill due to the number of results returned being lower than the hit count. This could happen when there were results excluded due to being in the index but the model NOT being registered in the SearchSite. Thanks akrito and tcline for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered the docs to look more like the main site. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a (short) list of who uses Haystack. Would love to have more on this list. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed docs on preparing data. Thanks fud. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added the ModelSearchIndex class for easier SearchIndex generation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a note about using possibly unsafe data with filter/exclude. Thanks to ryszard for pointing this out. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Standardized the API on date_facet. Thanks to notanumber for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Moved constructing the schema down to the SearchBackend level. This allows more flexibility when creating a schema. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug where a hyphen provided to auto_query could break the query string. Thanks to ddanier for the report. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE - For consistency, get_query_set has been renamed to get_queryset on SearchIndex classes. [Daniel Lindsley]

    A simple search & replace to remove the underscore should be all that is needed.

  • Missed two bits while updating the documentation for the Xapian backend. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated documentation to add the Xapian backend information. A big thanks to notatnumber for all his hard work on the Xapian backend. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added EmptySearchQuerySet. Thanks to askfor for the suggestion! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added "Best Practices" documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added documentation about the HAYSTACK_SITECONF setting. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed erroneous documentation on Xapian not supporting boost. Thanks notanumber! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE - The haystack.autodiscover() and other site modifications now get their own configuration file and should no longer be placed in the ROOT_URLCONF. Thanks to SmileyChris for the original patch and patrys for further feedback. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added verbose_name_plural to the SearchResult object. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a warning about ordering by integers with the Whoosh backend. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a note about ordering and accented characters. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated the more_like_this tag to allow for narrowing the models returned by the tag. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed null=True for IntegerField and FloatField. Thanks to ryszard for the report and original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Reverted aabdc9d4b98edc4735ed0c8b22aa09796c0a29ab as it would cause mod_wsgi environments to fail in conjunction with the admin on Django 1.1. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added the start of a glossary of terminology. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Various documentation fixes. Thanks to sk1p & notanumber. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • The haystack.autodiscover() and other site modifications may now be placed in ANY URLconf, not just the ROOT_URLCONF. Thanks to SmileyChris for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed invalid/empty pages in the SearchView. Thanks to joep and SmileyChris for patches. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a note and an exception about consistent fieldnames for the document field across all SearchIndex classes. Thanks sk1p_! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Possible thread-safety fix related to registration handling. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE - The 'boost' method no longer takes kwargs. This makes boost a little more useful by allowing advanced terms. [Daniel Lindsley]

    To migrate code, convert multiple kwargs into separate 'boost' calls, quote what was the key and change the '=' to a ','.

  • Updated documentation to match behavioral changes to MLT. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a serious bug in MLT on Solr. Internals changed a bit and now things work correctly. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed erroneous 'zip_safe' from Thanks ephelon. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added null=True to fields, allowing you to ignore/skip a field when indexing. Thanks to Kevin for the original patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a standing test failure. The dummy setup can't do load_all due to mocking. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added initial additional_query to MLT to allow for narrowing results. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed nasty bug where results would get duplicated due to cached results. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered ITERATOR_LOAD_PER_QUERY from 20 to 10. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Corrected tutorial when dealing with fields that have use_template=True. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated documentation to reflect basic Solr setup. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fix documentation on grabbing Whoosh and on the 'load_all' parameter for SearchForms. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed bug where the '__in' filter wouldn't work with phrases or data types other than one-word string/integer. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed bug so that the 'load_all' option in 'SearchView' now actually does what it says it should. How embarrassing... [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added ability to specify custom QuerySets for loading records via 'load_all'/'load_all_queryset'. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug where results from non-registered models could appear in the results. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE - Changed 'module_name' to 'model_name' throughout Haystack related to SearchResult objects. Only incompatible if you were relying on this attribute. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added the ability to fetch additional and stored fields from a SearchResult as well as documentation on the SearchResult itself. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added the ability to look through relations in SearchIndexes via '__'. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added note about the 'text' fieldname convention. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added an 'update_object' and 'remove_object' to the SearchSite objects as a shortcut. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Recover gracefully from queries Whoosh judges to be invalid. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Missed test from previous commit. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added stemming support to Whoosh. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed the commented version. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Django 1.0.X compatibility fix for the reindex command. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Reindexes should now consume a lot less RAM. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Evidently, when you run a ton of queries touching virtually everything in your DB, you need to clean out the "logged" queries from the connection. Sad but true.

  • Altered SearchBackend.remove and SearchBackend.get_identifier to accept an object or a string identifier (in the event the object is no longer available). [Daniel Lindsley]

    This is useful in an environment where you no longer have the original object on hand and know what it is you wish to delete.

  • Added a simple (read: ghetto) way to run the test suite without having to mess with settings. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a setting HAYSTACK_BATCH_SIZE to control how many objects are processed at once when running a reindex. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed import that was issuing a warning. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Further tests to make sure unregister works appropriately as well, just to be paranoid. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bizarre bug where backends may see a different site object than the rest of the application code. THIS REQUIRES SEARCH & REPLACING ALL INSTANCES OF from haystack.sites import site TO from haystack import site. [Daniel Lindsley]

    No changes needed if you've been using haystack.autodiscover().

  • Pushed save/delete signal registration down to the SearchIndex level. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This should make it easier to alter how individual indexes are setup, allowing you to queue updates, prevent deletions, etc. The internal API changed slightly.

  • Created a default 'clean' implementation, as the first three (and soon fourth) backends all use identical code. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Updated tests to match new 'model_choices'. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added timeout support to Solr. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Capitalize the Models in the model_choices. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed unnecessary import. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • No longer need to watch for DEBUG in the 'haystack_info' command. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed bug in Whoosh backend when spelling suggestions are disabled. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a "clear_search_index" management command. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed comments as pysolr now supports timeouts and the other comment no longer applies. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed Solr-flavored schema bits. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Still need to work out a better way to handle user created fields that don't fit neatly into subclassing one of the core Field types.

  • Moved informational messages to a management command to behave better when using dumpdata or wsgi. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed some Solr-specific field names. Requires a reindex. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Typo'd docstring. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed empty test file from spelling testing. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Documentation for getting spelling support working on Solr. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Initial spelling support added. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added a 'more_like_this' template tag. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed an unnecessary 'run'. This cause MLT (and potentially 'raw_search') to fail by overwriting the results found. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added Whoosh failure. Needs inspecting. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Finally added views/forms documentation. A touch rough still. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug in FacetedSearchView where a SearchQuerySet method could be called on an empty list instead. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Backed out the Whoosh quoted dates patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Something still seems amiss in the Whoosh query parser, as ranges and dates together don't seem to get parsed together properly.

  • Added a small requirements section to the docs. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added notes about enabling the MoreLikeThisHandler within Solr. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Revised how tests are done so each backend now gets its own test app. [Daniel Lindsley]

    All tests pass once again.

  • Added 'startswith' filter. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed the __repr__ method on QueryFilters. Thanks JoeGermuska for the original patch! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE - Both the Solr & Whoosh backends now provide native Python types back in SearchResults. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This also allows Whoosh to use native types better from the 'SearchQuerySet' API itself.

    This unfortunately will also require all Whoosh users to reindex, as the way some data (specifically datetimes/dates but applicable to others) is stored in the index.

  • SearchIndexes now support inheritance. Thanks smulloni! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added FacetedSearchForm to make handling facets easier. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered loading statements to only display when DEBUG is True. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Write to STDERR where appropriate. Thanks zerok for suggesting this change. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE - Altered the search query param to 'q' instead of 'query'. Thanks simonw for prompting this change. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed the Whoosh patch in favor of better options. Please see the documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added Whoosh patch for 0.1.15 to temporarily fix reindexes. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered the reindex command to handle inherited models. Thanks smulloni! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed the no longer needed Whoosh patch. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Whoosh users should upgrade to the latest Whoosh (0.1.15) as it fixes the issues that the patch covers as well as others.

  • Documented the 'content' shortcut. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed an incorrect bit of documentation on the default operator setting. Thanks benspaulding! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Documentation fixes. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered the whoosh patch. Should apply cleanly now. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Better linking to the search engine installation notes. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a bug in ModelSearchForm. Closes #1. Thanks dotsphinx! [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added link to pysolr binding. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Refined documentation on preparing SearchIndex data. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Changed existing references from 'model_name' to 'module_name'. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This was done to be consistent both internally and with Django. Thanks brosner!

  • Added new 'should_update' method to documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added 'should_update' method to SearchIndexes. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This allows you to control, on a per-index basis, what conditions will cause an individual object to reindex. Useful for models that update frequently with changes that don't require indexing.

  • Added FAQ docs. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Alter Whoosh backend to commit regardless. This avoids locking issues that can occur on higher volume sites. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • A more efficient implementation of index clearing in Whoosh. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added details about settings needed in [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added Thanks cyberdelia for prompting it. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Further benefits include less mocking and haystack's tests no longer contributing overall testing of end-user apps. Documentation included.

  • Removed old comment. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed a potential race condition. Also, since there's no way to tell when everything is ready to go in Django, adding an explicit call to SearchQuerySet's __init__ to force the site to load if it hasn't already. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • More tests on models() support. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Pulled schema building out into the site to leverage across backends. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Altered backend loading for consistency with Django and fixed the long-incorrect-for-non-obvious-and-tedious-reasons version number. Still beta but hopefully that changes soon. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Missed a spot when fixing SearchSites. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE - Created a class name conflict during the last change (double use of SearchIndex). Renamed original SearchIndex to SearchSite, which is slightly more correct anyhow. [Daniel Lindsley]

    This will only affect you if you've custom built sites (i.e. not used autodiscover().

  • More documentation. Started docs on SearchQuery. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Further fleshed out SearchQuerySet documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE (2 of 2) - Altered autodiscover to search for '' instead of '' to prevent collisions and be more descriptive. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fleshed out a portion of the SearchQuerySet documentation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • SearchQuerySet.auto_query now supports internal quoting for exact matches. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed semi-serious issue with SearchQuery objects, causing bits to leak from one query to the next when cloning. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Initial faceting support complete. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Query facets tested. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Bugfix to (field) facets. [Daniel Lindsley]

    Using a dict is inappropriate, as the output from Solr is sorted by count. Now using a two-tuple.

  • Backward-incompatible changes to faceting. Date-based faceting is now present. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Solr implementation of faceting started. Needs more tests. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Removed the kwargs. Explicit is better than implicit. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Tests for highlighting. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Added initial highlighting support. Needs tests and perhaps a better implementation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Started "build_solr_schema" command. Needs testing with more than one index. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Argh. ".select_related()" is killing reindexes. Again. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Stored fields now come back as part of the search result. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed Solr's SearchQuery.clean to handle reserved words more appropriately. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Filter types seem solid and have tests. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • App renamed (for namespace/sanity/because it's really different reasons). [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Started trying to support the various filter types. Needs testing and verification. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Fixed tests in light of the change to "OR". [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Readded "select_related" to reindex command. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • I am a moron. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • "OR" is now the default operator. Also, "auto_query" now handles not'ed keywords. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Internal documentation fix. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Solr backend can now clear on a per-model basis. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Solr backend tests fleshed out. Initial stability of Solr. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Massive renaming/refactoring spree. Tests 100% passing again. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Renamed BaseSearchQuerySet to SearchQuerySet. Now requires instantiation. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Support kwargs on the search. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Move solr backend tests in prep for fully testing the backend. [Daniel Lindsley]

  • Some ContentField/StoredField improvements. [Daniel Lindsley]

    StoredFields now have a unique template per field (as they should have from the start) and there's a touch more checking. You can also now override the template name for either type of field.
