Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require teamtnt/laravel-scout-tntsearch-driver

Add the service provider:

// config/app.php
'providers' => [
    // ...
    TeamTNT\Scout\TNTSearchScoutServiceProvider::class,
],

Ensure you have Laravel Scout as a provider too otherwise you will get an "unresolvable dependency" error

// config/app.php
'providers' => [
    // ...
    Laravel\Scout\ScoutServiceProvider::class,
],

Add SCOUT_DRIVER=tntsearch to your .env file

Then you should publish scout.php configuration file to your config directory

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Laravel\Scout\ScoutServiceProvider"

In your config/scout.php add:


'tntsearch' => [
    'storage'  => storage_path(), //place where the index files will be stored
    'fuzziness' => env('TNTSEARCH_FUZZINESS', false),
    'fuzzy' => [
        'prefix_length' => 2,
        'max_expansions' => 50,
        'distance' => 2
    ],
    'asYouType' => false,
    'searchBoolean' => env('TNTSEARCH_BOOLEAN', false),
],

To prevent your search indexes being commited to your project repository, add the following line to your .gitignore file.

/storage/*.index

The asYouType option can be set per model basis, see the example below.

Usage

After you have installed scout and the TNTSearch driver, you need to add the Searchable trait to your models that you want to make searchable. Additionaly, define the fields you want to make searchable by defining the toSearchableArray method on the model:

<?php

namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
use Laravel\Scout\Searchable;

class Post extends Model
{
    use Searchable;

    public $asYouType = true;

    /**
     * Get the indexable data array for the model.
     *
     * @return array
     */
    public function toSearchableArray()
    {
        $array = $this->toArray();

        // Customize array...

        return $array;
    }
}

Then, sync the data with the search service like:

php artisan scout:import App\\Post

If you have a lot of records and want to speed it up you can run:

php artisan tntsearch:import App\\Post

After that you can search your models with:

Post::search('Bugs Bunny')->get();

Constraints

Additionally to where() statements as conditions, you're able to use Eloquent queries to constrain your search. This allows you to take relationships into account.

If you make use of this, the search command has to be called after all queries have been defined in your controller.

The where() statements you already know can be applied everywhere.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Post;

class PostController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function index(Request $request)
    {
        $post = new Post;

        // filter out posts to which the given topic is assigned
        if($request->topic) {
            $post = $post->whereNotIn('id', function($query){
                $query->select('assigned_to')->from('comments')->where('topic','=', request()->input('topic'));
            });
        }

        // only posts from people that are no moderators
        $post = $post->byRole('moderator','!=');

        // when user is not admin filter out internal posts
        if(!auth()->user()->hasRole('admin'))
        {
            $post= $post->where('internal_post', false);
        }

        if ($request->searchTerm) {
            $constraints = $post; // not necessary but for better readability
            $post = Department::search($request->searchTerm)->constrain($constraints);
        }

        $post->where('deleted', false);

        $post->orderBy('updated_at', 'asc');

        $paginator = $department->paginate(10);
        $posts = $paginator->getCollection();

        // return posts
    }
}

OrderBy

An orderBy() statement can now be applied to the search query similar to the where() statement.

When using constraints apply it after the constraints are added to the query, as seen in the above example.
