I recommend Linux. Grep is a wonderful tool for just this type of thing.
Or yeah, elasticsearch
Elasticsearch is pretty overkill for it.
Any RDBMs would suffice.
Since long time, any reasonable RDBMs has full text search capabilities.
I hope you meant the Wordpress Part as a joke....
If you need software, it might be better looking out for a DMS / document management system, since the way of organizing things makes more sense than a wiki.
inhamul961yI mean you could try pocket, it also has a cool firefox/chrome extension I love.
eval7121yElasticsearch is cool though. Fot me it's a game changer being able to search through gigabytes of text in 80ms...
@eval i want to pinch your cheeks right now... (Like an old granny)
How... Innocent.... You are.
Elasticsearch has become more adult in the last versions.
But is really really really really a pain in the ass regarding versioning and it's APIs... And it's bugs. And it's documentation.
8.0 might be the first release I like.
Edit: I've been using ES since 1.7 .
Not liking 1.7. More hate. Nah. Hate is too kind. Somethings way stronger than hate.
@eval I haven't had experience with it yet, but there is
Solr (based in Lucene, too)
Sphinx exists as an Engine in eg MariaDB.
But all in all... I think that ES and most complex search engines are really overkill when a simple full text search suffices.
@zemaitis let ne ask some questions first.
What's your motive?
Do you want to create a DMS?
As in upload documents, process them with OCR, extracting the text, version this document so you can add additional data like comments / notes etc.
Or a "free style" knowledge database?
Like "oh I've found this link"... what additional links do I have for this topic?
These two ideas are very contrary to each other. One is about handling documents and processing them, the other is a content orientated workflow where content can be anything (self written, links ... Anything with a textual representation)
Last: What is your criteria for a full text search? What did Wordpress lack that you need?
Then I'll be very happy to give a detailed answer ;)
