A Ferret/AAF success story

Hello everyone-

We recently added full archives search to Lingr (http://www.lingr.com),
and we used Ferret/AAF to do it.

I’ve written a blog post with some details of that integration, and I
thought some of you might be interested. See
http://blog.lingr.com/2007/05/we_heart_ferret.html.

I’m grateful to the authors of Ferret and AAF, as well as to all the
people in this forum who helped me stumble through the integration. I
hope I can give something back here to even things up :slight_smile:

Best Regards,

Danny

cool :slight_smile: I really like the result clustering.

Small issue: The statement ‘Displaying the top 100’ was confusing at
first since only 7 or so rooms were displayed. Maybe additionally
mentioning the number of rooms could help to clear things up a bit?
I.e.: ‘Displaying 100 messages from 7 rooms’

I think that multi-lingual tokenizer could be useful for other users of
Ferret, too :wink:

cheers,

Excellent suggestion- I’ll implement it now :slight_smile:

We’ll definitely open-source that - just let me clean it up a bit, then
we’ll post it at http://svn.lingr.com. I’ll make an announcement here
when it’s ready.
