Lupy: Python Lucene

Update: See PyLucene instead which relies in Java Lucene.

Some crazy folks ported the famous search engine Lucene to Python and the result is called Lupy!

Lupy is a is a full-text indexer and search engine written in Python. It is a port of Jakarta Lucene 1.2 to Python. Specifically, it reads and writes indexes in Lucene binary format. Like Lucene, it is sophisticated and scalable. Lucene is a polished and mature project and you are encouraged to read the documentation found at the Lucene home page.

  1. Le problème est que ce projet n’a pas évolué depuis longtemps, et toutes les features de lucène ne sont pas disponibles. A ce jour préfère encore jython et lucène.

    Problem is the project has not evolved since a long time, and all the features of lucene are not present in lupy. Today I still work with lucene and jython instead of lupy.
