Lighthouse - A lightning fast search for the LBRY blockchain

Codacy Badge MIT licensed

Lighthouse is a lightning-fast advanced search engine API for publications on the lbrycrd with autocomplete capabilities. The official lighthouse instance is live at https://lighthouse.lbry.io

What does Lighthouse consist of?

  1. Elasticsearch as a backend db server.
  2. LBRYimport, an importer that imports the claims into the Elasticsearch database.
  3. Lighthouse API server, which serves the API and does all calculations about what to send to the end user.

API Documentation / Usage example

To make a simple search by string:

https://lighthouse.lbry.io/search?s=stringtosearch

To get autocomplete suggestions:

https://lighthouse.lbry.io/autocomplete?s=stringtocomp

The full API documentation

Installation

Prerequisites

To get started you should clone the git:

git clone https://github.com/lbryio/lighthouse

Make sure elasticsearch is running and run (from the lighthouse dir):

./gendb.sh

Install dependencies:

yarn install --production=false

Build and run Lighthouse:

yarn run prod

You are now up and running! You can connect to lighthouse at http://localhost:50005, api documentation is here. Lighthouse will continue syncing in the background. It usually takes ~15 minutes before all claims are up to date in the database.
