lunr.js 0.7.0

lunr

Convenience function for instantiating a new lunr index and configuring it with the default pipeline functions and the passed config function.

When using this convenience function a new index will be created with the following functions already in the pipeline:

lunr.StopWordFilter - filters out any stop words before they enter the index

lunr.stemmer - stems the tokens before entering the index.

Example:

var idx = lunr(function () {
  this.field('title', 10)
  this.field('tags', 100)
  this.field('body')

  this.ref('cid')

  this.pipeline.add(function () {
    // some custom pipeline function
  })

})

EventEmitter

lunr.EventEmitter is an event emitter for lunr. It manages adding and removing event handlers and triggering events and their handlers.

addListener

lunr.EventEmitter.prototype.addListener()

method

Params

  • [eventName] - The name(s) of events to bind this function to.
  • fn - The function to call when an event is fired.

Binds a handler function to a specific event(s).

Can bind a single function to many different events in one call.

Source

lunr.EventEmitter.prototype.addListener = function () {
  var args = Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments),
      fn = args.pop(),
      names = args

  if (typeof fn !== "function") throw new TypeError ("last argument must be a function")

  names.forEach(function (name) {
    if (!this.hasHandler(name)) this.events[name] = []
    this.events[name].push(fn)
  }, this)
}

removeListener

lunr.EventEmitter.prototype.removeListener()

method

Params

  • eventName - The name of the event to remove this function from.
  • fn - The function to remove from an event.

Removes a handler function from a specific event.

Source

lunr.EventEmitter.prototype.removeListener = function (name, fn) {
  if (!this.hasHandler(name)) return

  var fnIndex = this.events[name].indexOf(fn)
  this.events[name].splice(fnIndex, 1)

  if (!this.events[name].length) delete this.events[name]
}

emit

lunr.EventEmitter.prototype.emit()

method

Params

  • eventName - The name of the event to emit.

Calls all functions bound to the given event.

Additional data can be passed to the event handler as arguments to emit after the event name.

Source

lunr.EventEmitter.prototype.emit = function (name) {
  if (!this.hasHandler(name)) return

  var args = Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments, 1)

  this.events[name].forEach(function (fn) {
    fn.apply(undefined, args)
  })
}

hasHandler

lunr.EventEmitter.prototype.hasHandler()

method

Params

  • eventName - The name of the event to check.

Checks whether a handler has ever been stored against an event.

Source

lunr.EventEmitter.prototype.hasHandler = function (name) {
  return name in this.events
}

tokenizer

A function for splitting a string into tokens ready to be inserted into the search index. Uses lunr.tokenizer.seperator to split strings, change the value of this property to change how strings are split into tokens.

load

lunr.tokenizer.load()

method

Params

  • label - The label of the serialised tokenizer.

Loads a previously serialised tokenizer.

A tokenizer function to be loaded must already be registered with lunr.tokenizer. If the serialised tokenizer has not been registered then an error will be thrown.

Source

lunr.tokenizer.load = function (label) {
  var fn = this.registeredFunctions[label]

  if (!fn) {
    throw new Error('Cannot load un-registered function: ' + label)
  }

  return fn
}

lunr.tokenizer.label = 'default'

lunr.tokenizer.registeredFunctions = {
  'default': lunr.tokenizer
}

registerFunction

lunr.tokenizer.registerFunction()

method

Params

  • fn - The function to register.
  • label - The label to register this function with

Register a tokenizer function.

Functions that are used as tokenizers should be registered if they are to be used with a serialised index.

Registering a function does not add it to an index, functions must still be associated with a specific index for them to be used when indexing and searching documents.

Source

lunr.tokenizer.registerFunction = function (fn, label) {
  if (label in this.registeredFunctions) {
    lunr.utils.warn('Overwriting existing tokenizer: ' + label)
  }

  fn.label = label
  this.registeredFunctions[label] = fn
}

Pipeline

lunr.Pipelines maintain an ordered list of functions to be applied to all tokens in documents entering the search index and queries being ran against the index.

An instance of lunr.Index created with the lunr shortcut will contain a pipeline with a stop word filter and an English language stemmer. Extra functions can be added before or after either of these functions or these default functions can be removed.

When run the pipeline will call each function in turn, passing a token, the index of that token in the original list of all tokens and finally a list of all the original tokens.

The output of functions in the pipeline will be passed to the next function in the pipeline. To exclude a token from entering the index the function should return undefined, the rest of the pipeline will not be called with this token.

For serialisation of pipelines to work, all functions used in an instance of a pipeline should be registered with lunr.Pipeline. Registered functions can then be loaded. If trying to load a serialised pipeline that uses functions that are not registered an error will be thrown.

If not planning on serialising the pipeline then registering pipeline functions is not necessary.

registerFunction

lunr.Pipeline.registerFunction()

method

Params

  • fn - The function to check for.
  • label - The label to register this function with

Register a function with the pipeline.

Functions that are used in the pipeline should be registered if the pipeline needs to be serialised, or a serialised pipeline needs to be loaded.

Registering a function does not add it to a pipeline, functions must still be added to instances of the pipeline for them to be used when running a pipeline.

Source

lunr.Pipeline.registerFunction = function (fn, label) {
  if (label in this.registeredFunctions) {
    lunr.utils.warn('Overwriting existing registered function: ' + label)

  lunr.Pipeline.registeredFunctions[fn.label] = fn
}

method

Params

  • fn - The function to check for.

Warns if the function is not registered as a Pipeline function.

Source

lunr.Pipeline.warnIfFunctionNotRegistered = function (fn) {
  var isRegistered = fn.label && (fn.label in this.registeredFunctions)

  if (!isRegistered) {

  }
}

load

lunr.Pipeline.load()

method

Params

  • serialised - The serialised pipeline to load.

    }
  })

  return pipeline
}

Adds a field to the list of fields that will be searchable within documents in the index.

An optional boost param can be passed to affect how much tokens in this field rank in search results, by default the boost value is 1.

Fields should be added before any documents are added to the index, fields that are added after documents are added to the index will only apply to new documents added to the index.

  this._ref = refName
  return this
}

tokenizer

lunr.Index.prototype.tokenizer()

method

Params

  • fn - The function to use as a tokenizer.

Sets the tokenizer used for this index.

By default the index will use the default tokenizer, lunr.tokenizer. The tokenizer should only be changed before adding documents to the index. Changing the tokenizer without re-building the index can lead to unexpected results.

Source

lunr.Index.prototype.tokenizer = function (fn) {
  var isRegistered = fn.label && (fn.label in lunr.tokenizer.registeredFunctions)

  if (!isRegistered) {
    lunr.utils.warn('Function is not a registered tokenizer. This may cause problems when serialising the index')

method

Params

  • doc - The document to add to the index.
  • emitEvent - Whether or not to emit events, default true.

Add a document to the index.

This is the way new documents enter the index, this function will run the fields from the document through the index's pipeline and then add it to the index, it will then show up in search results.

An 'add' event is emitted with the document that has been added and the index the document has been added to. This event can be silenced by passing false as the second argument to add.

Source

lunr.Index.prototype.add = function (doc, emitEvent) {
  var docTokens = {},
      allDocumentTokens = new lunr.SortedSet,
      docRef = doc[this._ref],

    var fieldTokens = this.pipeline.run(this.tokenizerFn(doc[field.name]))

    docTokens[field.name] = fieldTokens

    for (var i = 0; i < fieldTokens.length; i++) {
      var token = fieldTokens[i]
      allDocumentTokens.add(token)
      this.corpusTokens.add(token)
    }
  }, this)

  this.documentStore.set(docRef, allDocumentTokens)

  for (var i = 0; i < allDocumentTokens.length; i++) {
    var token = allDocumentTokens.elements[i]
    var tf = 0;

    for (var j = 0; j < this._fields.length; j++){
      var field = this._fields[j]
      var fieldTokens = docTokens[field.name]

      var tokenCount = 0
      for (var k = 0; k < fieldLength; k++){
        if (fieldTokens[k] === token){
          tokenCount++
        }
      }

      tf += (tokenCount / fieldLength * field.boost)
    }

    this.tokenStore.add(token, { ref: docRef, tf: tf })
  };

  if (emitEvent) this.eventEmitter.emit('add', doc, this)
}

remove

lunr.Index.prototype.remove()

method

Params

  • doc - The document to remove from the index.
  • emitEvent - Whether to emit remove events, defaults to true

Removes a document from the index.

To make sure documents no longer show up in search results they can be removed from the index using this method.

The document passed only needs to have the same ref property value as the document that was added to the index, they could be completely different objects.

A 'remove' event is emitted with the document that has been removed and the index the document has been removed from. This event can be silenced by passing false as the second argument to remove.

Source

lunr.Index.prototype.remove = function (doc, emitEvent) {
  var docRef = doc[this._ref],
      emitEvent = emitEvent === undefined ? true : emitEvent

  if (!this.documentStore.has(docRef)) return

  var docTokens = this.documentStore.get(docRef)

  this.documentStore.remove(docRef)

  docTokens.forEach(function (token) {
    this.tokenStore.remove(token, docRef)
  }, this)

  if (emitEvent) this.eventEmitter.emit('remove', doc, this)
}

update

lunr.Index.prototype.update()

method

Params

  • doc - The document to update in the index.
  • emitEvent - Whether to emit update events, defaults to true

Updates a document in the index.

When a document contained within the index gets updated, fields changed, added or removed, to make sure it correctly matched against search queries, it should be updated in the index.

This method is just a wrapper around remove and add

An 'update' event is emitted with the document that has been updated and the index. This event can be silenced by passing false as the second argument to update. Only an update event will be fired, the 'add' and 'remove' events of the underlying calls are silenced.

Source

lunr.Index.prototype.update = function (doc, emitEvent) {
  var emitEvent = emitEvent === undefined ? true : emitEvent

  this.remove(doc, false)
  this.add(doc, false)

  if (emitEvent) this.eventEmitter.emit('update', doc, this)
}

documentVector

lunr.Index.prototype.documentVector()

method

Params

lunr.Index.prototype.documentVector = function (documentRef) {
  var documentTokens = this.documentStore.get(documentRef),
      documentTokensLength = documentTokens.length,
      documentVector = new lunr.Vector

use

lunr.Index.prototype.use()

method

Params

  • plugin - The plugin to apply.

Applies a plugin to the current index.

A plugin is a function that is called with the index as its context. Plugins can be used to customise or extend the behaviour the index in some way. A plugin is just a function, that encapsulated the custom behaviour that should be applied to the index.

The plugin function will be called with the index as its argument, additional arguments can also be passed when calling use. The function will be called with the index as its context.

Example:

var myPlugin = function (idx, arg1, arg2) {
  // `this` is the index to be extended
  // apply any extensions etc here.
}

var idx = lunr(function () {
  this.use(myPlugin, 'arg1', 'arg2')
})

stemmer

lunr.stemmer is an english language stemmer, this is a JavaScript implementation of the PorterStemmer taken from http://tartarus.org/~martin

generateStopWordFilter

lunr.generateStopWordFilter builds a stopWordFilter function from the provided list of stop words.

The built in lunr.stopWordFilter is built using this generator and can be used to generate custom stopWordFilters for applications or non English languages.

stopWordFilter

lunr.stopWordFilter is an English language stop word list filter, any words contained in the list will not be passed through the filter.

This is intended to be used in the Pipeline. If the token does not pass the filter then undefined will be returned.

trimmer

lunr.trimmer is a pipeline function for trimming non word characters from the begining and end of tokens before they enter the index.

This implementation may not work correctly for non latin characters and should either be removed or adapted for use with languages with non-latin characters.

TokenStore

lunr.TokenStore is used for efficient storing and lookup of the reverse index of token to document ref.
