Better Search Engine for TWiki

TWiki has internal search that is good for simple search and structured queries, but it does not handle search in attached files. There are extensions to integrate with Plucene (SearchEnginePluceneAddOn) and Kino Search (SearchEngineKinoSearchAddOn, KinoSearchPlugin), but they are outdated.


  • Light-weight (no huge list of dependencies)
  • Pure Perl, or C/C++ with Perl front end
  • Index most common file formats (M$ Office, PDF, HTML, XML)
  • Easy to integrate (css, etc)
  • File based configuration (list of converters etc)
  • Ideally be aware of page permissions (such as index all, and filter search result based on user credentials)
  • Open Source

Feedback? Opinions?

One possibe candidate is Apache Lucy, it is C based with Perl lib.
