Xapian Search Extension for Radiant
First, you'll need to install Xapian.
Next - from the root of your Radiant app - install the Xapit Plugin:
git submodule add git://github.com/ryanb/xapit.git vendor/plugins/xapit mkdir config/initializers cp vendor/plugins/xapit/rails_generators/xapit/templates/setup_xapit.rb config/initializers
Finally, install the extension:
git submodule add git://github.com/jfahrenkrug/radiant-xapian-search-extension.git vendor/extensions/xapian_search
And run the migration:
Now you can call the search method on the Page class:
It has built-in pagination. For more details and options, see the Xapit Readme.
The extension adds a "Searchable" checkbox to the Page admin form so you can define whether a page gets added to the index or not. Please note that the index is not being updated automatically! You'll have to call
from a cron job regularly or use something like Xapit-Sync.
Page Type and Tags
This extension should work as a drop-in replacement for the Radiant Search Extension. So the instructions below and 99% of the search_page.rb code come from that extension. Thank you, guys!
This extension works by creating a new page type called "Search". After you install it and re-start your web server, you should have a new type of page available.
- Download and install according to the instructions above.
- Create a new page called "Search" (or whatever you want)
- Set the Page Type to "Search" and the Status to "Published"
- Take the sample code below and paste it into the body of the new page.
- Visit http://localhost:3000/search and enter a search term.
- Bask in the glow of a job well done. :)
Place everything in the block below in the body of the "Search" page. This will provide a very basic Search page, but it should show you everything you need to know to make your own page better.
<r:search:form submit="Search"/> <r:search:initial> <strong>Enter a phrase above to search this website.</strong> </r:search:initial> <r:search:empty> <strong>I couldn't find anything named "<r:search:query/>".</strong> </r:search:empty> <r:search:results> Found the following pages that contain "<r:search:query/>". <ul> <r:search:results:each> <li><r:link/><br/> <r:search:highlight><r:content/></r:search:highlight></li> </r:search:results:each> </ul> </r:search:results>
