Lucene Search Coming to openSUSE Wiki

Filed under
Web
SUSE

Most openSUSE users are aware that a new version of the English wiki was released back in July, with the other wikis soon to follow. Among many other changes, the new wiki came with a laundry list of new features. However, users have noticed that one important feature was still missing in the new wiki… a decent search engine.

I mentioned in a previous article that I am working on a replacement for the default search engine. Finally, after overcoming some technical hurdles and getting some servers upgraded, the new search engine is ready to go live. If all goes well, this should happen within the next day. An article will be written on openSUSE news when the new search goes live, but I also wanted to write about some technical details of the Lucene search engine for those who might be interested.
