This is a generic Full Text Search engine for Django projects.

Currently implements three backends: dummy, simple and pgsql.

  • dummy: just uses ILIKE to do the search (no indexes)
  • simple: implements the search using two helper tables for the indexes
  • pgsql: uses PostgreSQL 8.3 full text search engine

It should be possible to easily integrate MySQL, Sphinx and Xapian backends too.
