Sphinx search plugin
02 June 2010, 1:20 AM
I am currently working on a search plugin using the Sphinx full-text search engine.
Primarily it will work as a drop-in replacement for the internal plugin, but other features should be easy to implement. For example, finding friends from the user's own institution might be useful at some situations.
Please let me know what you think.

i am asking about integrating this search plugin onto mahara

I work for the University of Vienna, Austria, and we are starting to use Mahara at our University. We are highly interested in your search plugin. My colleague, Birgit Peterson, has already told me about your project and that you might have a first version available in August?
Please keep me informed about the progress of your project.

I added the German langpack translation in the feedback of your view ;-)
Feel free to ask for any enhancement strings.

When trying to download the plugin, I get the message that the view is not available to me . . .

Thank you Heinz for your translation. I have included it in the package.
Caryn: That's odd. It should be a public view.

Antti, I was able to get to this by going to your profile and clicking on the view link from there. Thanx. Caryn

Thanks for creating this plugin, it is a feature many have been looking for.
Is anyone working on the Postgres version / patch?
All of my Mahara instances are running Postgres and i'd really like to try it out.

I have updated the plugin to be compatible with Mahara 1.3. There are also changes to sphinx.conf file. If you are updating from the previous version you should check the differences between the config files.
I noticed that the search plugin option is missing from the site configuration page. The form element is commented out for some reason. I think it can be safely restored.
