Really simple django-app for search by Q-expressions

Project description

# django-silly-search

Simple django-app for search by Q-expressions.

If you need the simple way to search, without full-text,
morphology features, this app may be useful. But, if you need search for more
complicated case, you should use something like [Haystack](

## Features

* Search for one or few models
* Search for multiple fields

## Install

Clone this repo and install from the source:
git clone
cd django-silly-search
pip install -e .

or just use PyPI

pip install django-silly-search

## How to use

The app provides a single function:

from silly_search import q_search

# q_search(models, fields, q) -> QuerySet
The functions takes required arguments:

`models` – Models for search. Should be instance of `ModelBase` (regular Model)
or `list` of `ModelBase` instances

`fields` – Fields for search. Should be `str` or `list` of `str` (just name of models field)

`q` – phrase for search. Should be an `str`

## Example

Let's say you have Models:

class Article(models.Model):
title = models.CharField(max_length=128)
description = models.CharField(max_length=255)
text = models.TextField()

class News(models.Model):
pub_date = models.DateTimeField(auto_now_add=True)
title = models.CharField(max_length=128)
text = models.TextField()Z

and you want to make search on these models. So, you can search for one model and one field:

q_search(Article, 'title', q='spam')

or for one models, but few fields:

q_search(Article, fields=['title', 'text'], q='spam')

or for few models and few fields:
q_search(models=[Article, News], fields=['title', 'description', 'text'], q='spam')
