TurboLucene is a library that allows TurboGears applications to easily use the PyLucene full text search engine.
TurboLucene is a library that allows TurboGears applications to use PyLucene for full text searching. It features a simple interface and takes care of all the nasty threading issues that exist between PyLucene and CherryPy (which is used by TurboGears).
- PyLucene 2.0.0 or better
- TurboGears 1.0 or better
Thanks to setuptools, TurboGears and it’s dependencies will be installed automatically, if necessary. However, PyLucene must be downloaded and installed manually.
TurboLucene is not very demanding and may work with earlier versions of both PyLucene and TurboGears, but other versions have not been tested.
TurboLucene uses setuptools, so installation is as easy as:
python setup.py install
For more installation options, try:
python setup.py --help
The latest version can always be downloaded at http://dev.krys.ca/turbolucene.
Better documentation is to come, but in the mean time, please check out the source code as it is well commented and the API is very simple.
TurboLucene is still in early stages of development. Currently it only supports English stemming, etc. It also will only create the index directory in the current working directory and it’s not configurable yet. It has also not been optimised, extensively tested, benchmarked or profiled for performance or memory usage. Finally, there are no test cases yet.
The plan is to eliminate all these limitations, eventually, but in it’s current state, it satisfies the author’s needs.
Patches and suggestions are welcome! :-)

Special thanks goes out to all the brilliant and hard working people of the TurboGears and PyLucene projects. Without their tireless efforts, this project would not exist!
Also thanks to everyone in the Open Source and Free Software communities. I really believe spirit and philosophy of the FLOSS movement will change the world. I am happy to be abel to give a little back.
