Trac Advanced Search Plugin
An advanced search plugin for the open source Trac project (http://trac.edgewall.org/). This Trac plugin allows you to use a full-text search engine (such as Apache Solr) as the search backend for performing search in Trac. This plugin also includes a backend for Apache Solr (http://lucene.apache.org/solr/), but other plugins can use the extension point provided by this plugin to query a different backend.
This plugin is known to be compatible with Trac 0.12 with Solr 3.1, as well as Trac 1.0.1 with Solr 4.3.1.
See the interface in
plugin-src/advsearch/interface.py for details about which
methods to implement.
See http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracDev for more information about developing a Trac plugin.
How it works
Once your existing tickets/wiki documents are indexed in the backend you can
make requests using the Advanced Search form. These searches will be handled
by the search backend you have configured in trac.ini. When new documents or
tickets are added
upsert_document() will be called on each search backend
to update the index immediately.
Stable, and active.
The following python packages are required for the solr backend.
This assumes you already have a Trac environment setup.
- Build and install the plugin
cd plugin-src python setup.py bdist_egg cp ./dist/TracAdvancedSearch-*.egg <trac_environment_home>/plugins
- Setup the search backend. If you're using solr, copy and modify the configuration files provided.
cp ./solr/conf/* <solr_home>/conf
Index your current tickets and wiki pages in the search backend. If you're using solr, see
Configure your trac.ini (see the Configuration section below).
Restart the trac server. This will differ based on how you are running trac (apache, tracd, etc).
That's it. You should see an Advanced Search button in the main navbar.
trac.ini you'll need to configure whichever search backend you're using. If
you're using the default pysolr backend, add something like this:
[pysolr_search_backend] solr_url = http://localhost:8983/solr/ timeout = 30 [advanced_search_plugin] menu_label = Real Search
button_label and timeout are both optional.
The default pysolr backend queries to solr for indexing synchronously. If you want to do indexing asynchronously, add like this:
[pysolr_search_backend] async_indexing = true async_queue_maxsize = 10000 # if 0, the queue size is infinity ...
You'll also need to enable the components.
[components] tracadvsearch.advsearch.* = enabled tracadvsearch.backend.* = enabled
Remove Search button
To disable the old search add the following to
trac.ini may already have a components section.
[components] trac.search.web_ui.SearchModule = disabled
