Norch- a search engine for node.js

*****
UPDATE 10th Sept 2013: Norch is now known as Forage- read about this change here
*****

Norch is a search engine written for Node.js. Norch uses the Node search-index module which is in turn written using the super fast levelDB library that Google open-sourced in 2011.

The aim of Norch is to make a simple, fast search server, that requires minimal configuration to set up. Norch sacrifices complex functionality for a limited robust feature set, that can be used to set up a freetext search engine for most enterprise scenarios.

Currently Norch features

  • Full text search
  • Stopword removal
  • Faceting
  • Filtering
  • Relevance weighting (tf-idf)
  • Field weighting
  • Paging (offset and resultset length)
 
Norch can index any data that is marked up in the appropriate JSON format
