A simple, yet full-featured Django dictionary API

Project description

Dictionary Search is a simple Django app to perform dictionary lookups.

It uses Haystack as its search engine and has mainly been used with an SOLR backend.

It uses the logging framework to maintain a search log which may in turn be used to obtain lists of the most popular dictionary entries.

In order to use it, you should add ‘dictionary_search’ to your INSTALLED_APPS and include these lines in your project urls.py:

from haystack.views import SearchView
from dictionary_search.forms import DictionarySearchForm

urlpatterns = patterns(
    ...,
    url(r'^search/', SearchView(form_class=DictionarySearchForm),
    name='demo_search_page'),
    url(r'^s/', include('dictionary_search.urls')),
    ...,
)

You also need to install Haystack with an appropriate search backend, preferrably SOLR.

TBD: Write more complete usage documentation.
