Lucy::Docs::Tutorial - Step-by-step introduction to Apache Lucy.
Explore Apache Lucy's basic functionality by starting with a minimalist CGI search app based on Lucy::Simple and transforming it, step by step, into an "advanced search" interface utilizing more flexible core modules like Lucy::Index::Indexer and Lucy::Search::IndexSearcher.
Chapters · Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::Simple - Build a bare-bones search app using Lucy::Simple. · Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::BeyondSimple - Rebuild the app using core classes like Indexer and IndexSearcher in place of Lucy::Simple. · Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::FieldType - Experiment with different field characteristics using subclasses of Lucy::Plan::FieldType. · Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::Analysis - Examine how the choice of Lucy::Analysis::Analyzer subclass affects search results. · Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::Highlighter - Augment search results with highlighted excerpts. · Lucy::Docs::Tutorial::QueryObjects - Unlock advanced search features by using Query objects instead of query strings. Source materials The source material used by the tutorial app -- a multi-text-file presentation of the United States constitution -- can be found in the "sample" directory at the root of the Lucy distribution, along with finished indexing and search apps. sample/indexer.pl # indexing app sample/search.cgi # search app sample/us_constitution # corpus Conventions The user is expected to be familiar with OO Perl and basic CGI programming. The code in this tutorial assumes a Unix-flavored operating system and the Apache webserver, but will work with minor modifications on other setups.
More advanced and esoteric subjects are covered in Lucy::Docs::Cookbook.
