Jive Search is the open source search engine that doesn't track you. Search privately, now : https://jivesearch.com

💾 Installation

The below will build and run a Docker Compose file for Elasticsearch, OpenResty (Nginx), PostgreSQL, Redis, and a NSFW/image classification server. The OpenResty build assumes you have a domain name as well as a Let's Encrypt SSL certificate. However, in order for the nginx.conf file to dynamically load your SSL certificate you will need to create a symlink to a generic "domain" folder (replace "example.com" with your domain). For local development you can skip this step.

$ ln -s /etc/letsencrypt/live/example.com /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain

Install and run

$ go get -u github.com/jivesearch/jivesearch
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/jivesearch/jivesearch/docker
$ domain=example.com && onion=myonion.onion && data_directory=/path/to/data && sudo mkdir -p $data_directory/elasticsearch && sudo chown 1000:1000 $data_directory/elasticsearch && sudo DATA_DIRECTORY=$data_directory REDIS_PORT=6379 ES_HEAP=2g NGINX_DOMAIN=$domain ONION=$onion docker-compose build --no-cache && sudo DATA_DIRECTORY=$data_directory REDIS_PORT=6379 ES_HEAP=2g NGINX_DOMAIN=$domain ONION=$onion docker-compose up -d

For local development you don't need a Let's Encrypt certificate. You can simply access directly.

Elasticsearch may give you an error about max virtual memory areas. In that case:

# Add the following to the bottom of /etc/sysctl.conf (requires restart):

For local development we recommend setting an environment variable for your !bangs to speed up loading:

export JIVESEARCH_BANGS_PATH="/path/to/file"

For systemd settings (replace "myuser" below and edit env variables as needed):

sudo curl -o /etc/systemd/system/frontend.service https://gist.githubusercontent.com/brentadamson/7b8117347909cc38384fed589a3d785d/raw/19a4249931adf0ea60326a6bcb89813bf328e87a/frontend
sudo curl -o /etc/systemd/system/images.service https://gist.githubusercontent.com/brentadamson/daafa09f8d06eb401e0eb72c2b992261/raw/357e66de29d56739ae41d61cbe227d36819e0df4/images

(The crawler is only necessary if you don't use a third-party search provider like Yandex.)
