Content search and indexing

The open source search and indexing engine Elasticsearch is built into Rubedo CMS. It stands out by its open model knows as documentary or NoSQL which allows for versatile indexing of varied data and by its ability to perform real time indexing on large amounts of data without loss of search performance. Content types created with Rubedo are instantly declared to the indexing engine and contents are indexed in real time. This makes contents searchable for users as soon as they are published.

Taking advantage of the search capabilities of Elasticsearch, Rubedo natively offers a facet-based search interface. Facets provide automatic refining to the full text search by filtering results using their author, content type, publication date and also classifaction. The indexing library provides file parsers for the most common file types (doc, xls, ppt, xml, openoffice, pdf, html, txt, …) in order to enable text search on the content of such files.
