Integrating MongoDB Text Search with a Python App

Jun 4 • Posted 1 year ago

By Mike O’Brien, 10gen Software engineer and maintainer of Mongo-Hadoop

With the release of MongoDB 2.4, it’s now pretty simple to take an existing application that already uses MongoDB and add new features that take advantage of text search. Prior to 2.4, adding text search to a MongoDB app would have required writing code to interface with another system like Solr, Lucene, ElasticSearch, or something else. Now that it’s integrated with the database we are already using, we can accomplish the same result with reduced complexity, and fewer moving parts in the deployment.

Here we’ll go through a practical example of adding text search to Planet MongoDB, our blog aggregator site.

MongoDB Text Search: Experimental Feature in MongoDB 2.4

Jan 14 • Posted 1 year ago

Text search (SERVER-380) is one of the most requested features for MongoDB 10gen is working on an experimental text-search feature, to be released in v2.4, and we’re already seeing some talk in the community about the native implementation within the server. We view this as an important step towards fulfilling a community need. 

MongoDB text search is still in its infancy and we encourage you to try it out on your datasets. Many applications use both MongoDB and Solr/Lucene, but realize that there is still a feature gap. For some applications, the basic text search that we are introducing may be sufficient. As you get to know text search, you can determine when MongoDB has crossed the threshold for what you need.

Setting up Text Search


You can configure text search in the mongo shell:

db.adminCommand( { setParameter : 1, textSearchEnabled : true } )


Or set a command:

mongod --setParameter textSearchEnabled=true
