Algolia Search integration for Django

Project Description

Algolia Search API Client for Django

Algolia Search is a hosted full-text, numerical, and faceted search engine capable of delivering realtime results from the first keystroke.

This package lets you easily integrate the Algolia Search API to your Django project. It’s based on the algoliasearch-client-python package.

You might be interested in this sample Django application providing a typeahead.js based auto-completion and Google-like instant search: algoliasearch-django-example

Compatible with Python 2.7, Python 3.3+ and Django 1.7+

API Documentation

You can find the full reference on Algolia’s website.

Setup

Install

pip install algoliasearch-django

Setup

In your Django settings, add algoliasearch_django to INSTALLED_APPS and add these two settings:

ALGOLIA = {
    'APPLICATION_ID': 'MyAppID',
    'API_KEY': 'MyApiKey'
}

There are three optional settings:

  • INDEX_PREFIX: prefix all indexes. Use it to separate different applications, like site1_Products and site2_Products.
  • INDEX_SUFFIX: suffix all indexes. Use it to differenciate development and production environment, like Location_dev and Location_prod.
  • AUTO_INDEXING: automatically synchronize the models with Algolia (default to True).

Quick Start

Simply call algoliasearch.register() for each of the models you want to index. A good place to do this is in your application’s AppConfig (generally named apps.py). More info in the documentation

from django.apps import AppConfig
import algoliasearch_django as algoliasearch

class YourAppConfig(AppConfig):
    name = 'your_app'

    def ready(self):
        YourModel = self.get_model('your_model')
        algoliasearch.register(YourModel)

And then, don’t forget the line below in the __init__.py file of your Django application.

default_app_config = 'your_django_app.apps.YourAppConfig'

By default, all the fields of your model will be used. You can configure the index by creating a subclass of AlgoliaIndex. A good place to do this is in a separate file, like index.py.

from algoliasearch_django import AlgoliaIndex

class YourModelIndex(AlgoliaIndex):
    fields = ('name', 'date')
    geo_field = 'location'
    settings = {'searchableAttributes': ['name']}
    index_name = 'my_index'

And then replace algoliasearch.register(YourModel) with algoliasearch.register(YourModel, YourModelIndex).

Commands

Commands

  • python manage.py algolia_reindex: reindex all the registered models. This command will first send all the record to a temporary index and then moves it.
    • you can pass --model parameter to reindex a given model
  • python manage.py algolia_applysettings: (re)apply the index settings.
  • python manage.py algolia_clearindex: clear the index

Tags

Tags

Use the tags attributes to add tags to your record. It can be a field or a callable.

class ArticleIndex(AlgoliaIndex):
    tags = 'category'

At query time, specify { tagFilters: 'tagvalue' } or { tagFilters: ['tagvalue1', 'tagvalue2'] } as search parameters to restrict the result set to specific tags.

Options

Custom objectID

You can choose which field will be used as the objectID. The field should be unique and can be a string or integer. By default, we use the pk field of the model.

class ArticleIndex(AlgoliaIndex):
    custom_objectID = 'post_id'

Custom index name

You can customize the index name. By default, the index name will be the name of the model class.

class ContactIndex(algoliaindex):
    index_name = 'Enterprise'

Index settings

We provide many ways to configure your index allowing you to tune your overall index relevancy. All the configuration is explained on our doc.

class ArticleIndex(AlgoliaIndex):
    settings = {
        'searchableAttributes': ['name', 'description', 'url'],
        'customRanking': ['desc(vote_count)', 'asc(name)']
    }

Restrict indexing to a subset of your data

You can add constraints controlling if a record must be indexed or not. should_index should be a callable that returns a boolean.

class Contact(models.model):
    name = models.CharField(max_lenght=20)
    age = models.IntegerField()

    def is_adult(self):
        return (self.age >= 18)

class ContactIndex(AlgoliaIndex):
    should_index = 'is_adult'

Tests

Run Tests

To run the tests, first find your Algolia application id and Admin API key (found on the Credentials page).
