Sphinx Search Support

edited October 2009 in Feedback
What are the chance of getting Sphinx Search support in Garden/V2 in the future. I've personally used it on my PhpBB install, and the results were outstanding.



  • I also use it on my invision power board ... amazing results

    The search system is meant to be pluggable so it's very possible. If anyone wants to give it a shot I can give a hand.
  • yeh i would love some help, sphinx look like a great search solution, espcially in terms of speed.
  • agree, looks interesting!

    Bookmarked this discussion for future ref - definitely keen to make the best search possible; my site staff is very adamant about it.

    @DeadlyCreampuff @TerminalAddict Are you using custom plugins on your boards? Would you mind sharing them? I'm looking at forking a plugin for this off of one I found for Wordpress but seeing how it's been integrated with other forums would be helpful.

  • @Lincoln nothing custom. Invision has it integrated since about version 3.0.1 of IPB.

    I did write a wee howto that I posted in my Moderators only forum that I am happy to share with you if you want

    @TerminalAddict Ah, sucks that it's in their core because even if I get a copy I'm sure they're not using the GPL. Oh well, thanks for letting me know.

    @Benno Are you working on something like this?
  • @Lincoln - Yep, going to drop some early code on Github shortly so you can take a look at it. Still very much work in progress.

    OK, great. I'll keep my attention focused on the importer for now, then.
  • How does Sphinx compare to something like Lucene?
