Montezuma 0.1.1 is out. The search engine that walks up to Lucene and says “Luce, I am your father!” (and then makes a freaky bird sound) is now available for your use (if you use OpenMCL, SBCL or ACL).
Just ASDF-install it:
This should be considered an alpha release, and in particular there was one bug that delayed the release for a couple weeks, but once I discovered that Ferret, of which Montezuma is a port, has the same bug, I decided, FRACK IT. So here it is. Let me know if you have any problems.
The query language is undocumented and incomplete, but here are some examples:
"uav" "+title:robot embedded lisp -\"programming ruby\"" "opeth" "bug*" "*bug*" "+date:2005-12* +text:html-template -\"edi weitz\""
To see how to use Montezuma, take a look at the tutorial. For a more involved example, look at paste-search.lisp which contains a complete example of how to index and search with Montezuma. (pl.lisp and web-search.lisp are another example of indexing and searching, including via a web interface, but they require data that doesn't ship with Montezuma.)Posted by jjwiseman at July 13, 2006 05:00 PM
