The goal of this project is to provide a generic framework for integration of the SDL Tridion CMS with front-end search engines for your web applications. As such it is concerned with:
- Configuring what content in the CMS gets indexed
- Generating indexing data/indexing instructions
- Providing a framework for deploying data into a search index/notifying a search engine of (un/re)publishing actions
The project is not concerned with providing search engine specific integration code, but rather the hooks in which search engine specific modules can be integrated. An example integration with Apache Solr is available in the Solr sister project. This is provided as an example to get a simple search engine integration up and running, and to be used as a basis for other search engine-specific modules, which we encourage to be developed under open source license.
