    ElmTextSearch full text indexer

    Copyright (c) 2016 Robin Luiten This is a full text indexing engine inspired by lunr.js and written in Elm language. See for lunr.js I am happy to hear about users of this package. I am happy to receive contributions be they bug reports, pull requests, documention updates or examples.

    v4.0.0 will not load indexes saved with old version.

    If you do not use storeToValue storeToString fromString fromValue in ElmTextSearch this update is not likely to introduce issues. The way that filters and transforms are applied to the content of documents has changed. This is to properly fix a bug reported see where stop word filters were not correctly applied. This means saved indexes from prevoius version of ElmTextSearch will not load in this version.

    • Defaults.indexVersion has changed value. The reason this is a Major version bump is some generalisation was done to enable future support for loading and saving of older version and types of default index confgurations.

    v5.0.0 updates for Elm 0.19

    Result types from loading indexes are now Decode.Error not String.


    Several packages were created for this project and published seperately for this package to depend on.

    Parts of lunr.js were left out

    • This does not have an event system.
    • Its internal data structure is not compatible.

    Notes captured along way writing this.

    • lunr.js
      • tokenStore.remove does not decrement length, but it doesnt use length really only save/load
      • stemmer "lay" -> "lay" "try" -> "tri" is opposite to porter stemmer
    • porter stemmer erlang implementation
      • step5b does not use endsWithDoubleCons which is required afaik to pass the voc.txt output.txt cases


    See examples folder for four examples. You can run any of the examples if you navigate to the examples folder and run elm reactor and select an example in the src folder. First example is included inline here. IndexNewAddSearch.elm
