MongoDB sprouted search functionality a few months ago. Investigate this.

@askfor

that would be great

@Alir3z4

Oh this issue opened 2 years ago :|
Is there any progress on it?
It would be great, since there is also https://github.com/django-nonrel for mongodb.
Is django-haystack will use those tools from django-nonrel or gonna implement from built-in support from scratch ?

There has been no progress on this.

EDIT: I will update the issue when there is progress. That said, v2 isn't out yet & this is currently slated for the next minor release after that.

@joshourisman

Obviously 2.1.0 is now out; I'm assuming that nothing has happened on this?

@thedrow

Someone should simply pick this one up. But maybe no one is interested in this feature.

Shortly after I opened this issue, I looked into Mongo's search functionality. The query language in particular was pretty limited at the time, though that may have improved since.

I don't have any use or desire for Mongo support myself (beyond providing more backends for Haystack), so given that & the rest of the backlog, I haven't had time to get back here.

I'd be happy to help/provide review for someone else if they're willing to put the work in, but I likely won't be able to much more than that for the foreseeable future.

This also seems like it'd be a great candidate for a side project (django-haystack-mongodb?) which could develop independently from the core haystack tree.

@thedrow

We can use mongoengine in order to implement this feature.

@acdha acdha removed this from the v2.0.X milestone
