Easy-to-use interface to the Xapian search engine
The “xappy” python module is an easy-to-use interface to the Xapian search engine. Xapian provides a low level interface, dealing with terms and documents, but not really worrying about where terms come from, or how to build searches to match the way in which data has been indexed. In contrast, “xappy” allows you to design a field structure, specifying what kind of information is held in particular fields, and then uses this field structure to index data appropriately, and to build and perform searches.
Xappy is not yet stable - in particular, both the API and database format will change in future releases. If you wish to use it, we recommend that you subscribe to the xappy-discuss mailing list (see http://groups.google.com/group/xappy-discuss) to keep up-to-date with changes to Xappy.
