Dezi - REST search platform


Start the Dezi server, listening on port 5000:

 % dezi -p 5000

Add a document foo to the index:

 % curl http://localhost:5000/index/foo -XPOST \
   -d '<doc><title>bar</title>hello world</doc>' \
   -H 'Content-Type: application/xml'

Search the index for bar:

 % curl 'http://localhost:5000/search?q=bar&t=JSON'
 % curl 'http://localhost:5000/search?q=bar&t=XML'

Read the usage statement:

 % dezi -h


Dezi is a search platform based on Apache Lucy, Swish3, Search::OpenSearch and Search::Query.

Dezi integrates several CPAN search libraries into one easy-to-use interface.

Many of the code ideas in Dezi were developed while working on search-related projects for the Public Insight Network at American Public Media. http://www.publicinsightnetwork.org.


Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-dezi at rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=Dezi. I will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.
