Description Ben Srour 2007-08-13 20:03:49 UTC
When I try and remotely invoke a search query to the Wikipedia API I get back a null set of results.

LuceneSearch extension and MWSearch extension need to be merged in an
appropriate way so the API can get access to search results.

Well, no, no one has worked on making Lucene API-friendly AFAIK.

Thanks for the answer Roan.

Anyway, is there any search API alternatives at the moment?

Initial version of ApiQueryLuceneSearch.php

Attached a first version of my ApiQueryLuceneSearch.php extension module. I do not have Lucene working, so it is untested. Currently only the fulltext search function of Lucene is supported.

Nice work, Bryan, although you can lose Yuri's copyright line in favor of yours (you're the one who wrote the module, after all). You might wanna write up another patch that integrates this into the LuceneSearch extension (add it to $wgAPIModules in LuceneSearch's setup code) and ask someone with Lucene (the TestWiki folks, maybe?) to test it.

Comment 7 Bryan Tong Minh 2008-03-02 21:48:42 UTC
Added in r31471. Not very thoroughly tested.
Comment 8 Bryan Tong Minh 2008-03-03 15:53:05 UTC
Appears to be working except the part that outputs the titles: See <>. ApiQueryLuceneSearch::formatItem appears to be returning null.
Comment 9 Roan Kattouw 2008-03-03 15:55:38 UTC
I can't debug this as I don't have Lucene. It could be that $result->getTitle() (line 81) is null.
Comment 10 Bryan Tong Minh 2008-03-03 21:29:50 UTC
Fixed in r31522.
