๐Ÿ“Œ "pants on fire" | Search / LJWorld.com

The new Ellington search engine, powered by Haystack, is live on ljworld.com, and itโ€™s seriously awesome. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Whoosh

Pure-Python search engine. Looks like a great idea if you need something simple and donโ€™t want to mess with an external service. #

๐Ÿ“Œ LocalSolr | GIS Search

A Solr addon for doing geographic searches. Must investigate further. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Official Google Mac Blog: Search Without Effort: The Quick Search Box

This is what the creator of QuickSilver has been working on at Google. Pretty rudimentary right now, but Iโ€™m excited to see where it goes. #

๐Ÿ“Œ DjangoGoogleSearch โ€“ โ“ค Unicoders โ€“ Trac

Integrate Googleโ€™s Business Search with Django. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Kayak Search API (beta) - Kayak.com

Wow, Kayak (one of my favorite travel search sites) has an API, and a RESTful one to boot! Limited to 40 queries/hour, but still sweet. #

๐Ÿ“Œ FAST - Enterprise Search

A commercial search-engine provider about which Iโ€™ve heard good things. Judging by the fact that the web site doesnโ€™t provide pricing information, Iโ€™d guess that itโ€™s expensive โ€” if you have to ask, you donโ€™t want to know. Still worth a look, I think. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Xapian: Theoretical Background

Some good notes on how relevancy algorithms actually work. Must read through this in more detail. #

๐Ÿ“Œ ack -- a grep replacement that ignores .svn/CVS/blib directories, understands file types, uses Perl regexes, and much more

Whoa, this is *so* much better than grep itโ€™s not even funny. #

๐Ÿ“Œ CPS Project: NXLucene

Another Lucene-based web service tool (this one based on Plone) #

๐Ÿ“Œ Welcome to Hadoop!

Attempting to build an open-source clone of Google. Yes, you read that right. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Welcome to Solr

Lucene as a search server. XML/JSON APIs, web administration interface. Java servlets (yech), but probably a lot easier than PyLucene. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Merquery Summer of Code Results - brian's blog

Brianโ€™s writeup on his SoC project (that Iโ€™m mentoring). Hopefully heโ€™ll get around to the TODOs in the next week :) #

๐Ÿ“Œ Extending Django's database API to include full-text search (Mercurytide)

A kick-ass look at how to extend Djangoโ€™s lookup API with custom methods. This one adds fulltext search in a particularly nifty way. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Merquery, Text Indexing and Search with a Focus - brian's blog #
๐Ÿ“Œ A9.com > OpenSearch

Well now... Iโ€™ve got to take a look at this. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Google Video Search

One word: wow. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Google Suggest

No one noticed, but Google now puts out some of the best Javascript on the web. I have *got* to figure out how this works! #

๐Ÿ“Œ Koders - Source Code Search Engine #
