A Haystack extension used to index deep and nested model relationships.

Project description

deepsearch is a Haystack extension used to index deep and nested model relationships. Its key features are:

  • deepsearch.indexes.DeepSearchIndex class able to index deeply nested related objects and their fields.
  • deepsearch.models.FieldBoost model that stores weights of each index field for query-time field boosting.
  • resume_index command able to reindex a slice of all objects or only a subset of index fields.
  • Celery support for real-time indexing.



  • Python >= 2.6
  • Django >= 1.4
  • django-haystack >= 2.1.0
  • South.>= 0.8.1
  • celery>=3.1 (optional)



  1. Include 'deepsearch' in your INSTALLED_APPS.


  3. To enable real-time indexing add the following line to

    HAYSTACK_SIGNAL_PROCESSOR = 'deepsearch.signals.DeepSearchSignalProcessor'
  4. Create in your app directory.

  5. python init_boosts to update index field weight values. You should run this whenever you modify index schema.

  6. python rebuild_index will update index and deepsearch.models.IndexRelation table.
