What does it do?¶
Apache Solr for TYPO3 is the search engine you were looking for with special features such as Facetted Search or Synonym Support and an incredibly fast response times of results within milliseconds.
When development started, the primary goal was to create a replacement for Indexed Search. With the initial public release at T3CON09 in Frankfurt, Germany that goal was reached and even passed by adding features which Indexed Search does not support.
With EXT:solr it is simple to build a search for a TYPO3 website, that allows you to index any kind of TYPO3 records with TCA configuration and pages. The results can be rendered with flexible fluid templates, to render the results as you need them.
- Facetted Search
- Spellchecking / Did you mean
- Multi Language Support
- Search word highlighting
- Field Boosting for fine tuning the importance of certain index fields
- Frontend User Group Access Restrictions Support
- Stop word Support
- Synonym Support
- Auto complete / Auto suggest
- Language Analysis / Support for inflected word forms
- Content Elevation / Paid Search Results / Editorial Content
- Sorting of Results
- Content indexing through a near instant backend Index Queue
- Auto correction (search for the first suggestion)
- and more…
