Explore Apache Lucy’s basic functionality by starting with a minimalist CGI search app based on Lucy::Simple and transforming it, step by step, into an “advanced search” interface utilizing more flexible core modules like Indexer and IndexSearcher.
SimpleTutorial - Build a bare-bones search app using Lucy::Simple.
HighlighterTutorial - Augment search results with highlighted excerpts.
QueryObjectsTutorial - Unlock advanced search features by using Query objects instead of query strings.
The source material used by the tutorial app – a multi-text-file presentation
of the United States constitution – can be found in the
at the root of the Lucy distribution, along with finished indexing and search
sample/indexer_simple.c # simple indexing executable sample/search_simple.c # simple search executable sample/indexer.c # indexing executable sample/search.c # search executable sample/us_constitution # corpus
The user is expected to be familiar with OO Perl and basic CGI programming.
The code in this tutorial assumes a Unix-flavored operating system and the Apache webserver, but will work with minor modifications on other setups.
More advanced and esoteric subjects are covered in Cookbook.
