Datasette plugin for enabling full-text search against selected table columns


Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

$ datasette install datasette-configure-fts


Having installed the plugin, visit /-/configure-fts on your Datasette instance to configure FTS for tables on attached writable databases.

Any time you have permission to configure FTS for a table a menu item will appear in the table actions menu on the table page.

By default only the root actor can access the page - so you'll need to run Datasette with the --root option and click on the link shown in the terminal to sign in and access the page.

The configure-fts permission governs access. You can use permission plugins such as datasette-permissions-sql to grant additional access to the write interface.
