Search technology: Picking the right horse

For many years, Solr was the only realistic choice for most customers wanting to do an enterprise search project based on open source. Things changed around 2010/2011 when Elasticsearch started to gain traction. The last few years, the community around Elasticsearch has been growing rapidly and the software is regularly downloaded approximately half a million [...]

5 reasons Lebron is the future, or why the Forage search engine will rock

The Lebron stack Last week, I saw the future. Wohaa, that’s always a great feeling.  I’ve seen it in earlier weeks also, but now it was even brighter than before. For me, it’s still called the Lebron Stack as Max Ogden explains it and consists of LevelDB, Browserify and npm. All this is mostly happening [...]

Crawl interfaces for Forage running inside your browser

Got an idea a while back on how we could use the JavaScript/Nodejs Search Engine Forage so that the users would have their own search server inside the browser. The main takeaway from this would be that you don’t need to install anything to test the search engine. Since last time, I’ve made a quick [...]

Main navigation for recipe app user interface ready

Our seasonal food recipe app is getting closer to some front end hacking. Just finished making a navigation sprite where you’re supposed to swipe horizontal to change place of food foraging, and vertical to change time of year (month).

How to visualize absolute search result quality

Earlier, I’ve looked into how I could use the Phi spiral to possibly get a better display of what’s most relevant in a search result. A former colleague of mine, Johannes Hoff Holmedahl, did a quick test on the theory, and it may actually work. For the recipe app I want to do something slightly [...]

Idea: search server running inside browser

Got an idea to use the browser as a virtual machine for Forage Forage is Fergus McDowall’s pet project: A search server written in JavaScript and based on Node.js and LevelDB. Since it’s JavaScript, and HTML5 local storage has the same key/value storage as levelDB (HTML5 local storage for Chrome actually is levelDB) it has the [...]

Search templates in elasticsearch

Using search templates simplifies the life of the client searcher. Now she can have an elasticsearch query DSL expert create search templates for him, hiding away all the ugly booleans, weightings, facets and what have you, while she relaxes in his armchair emitting simple searches for ‘beetroot’ or any other favourite vegetable, fish, meats, dairy, or [...]
