reds-thai (REDis Search THAI language)
This project was forked from reds, a light-weight Redis search for node.js (https://github.com/visionmedia/reds).
This project have two updates from reds.
- It supports Thai language. We uses Thai word segmentation from wordcut library (https://github.com/veer66/wordcut).
- It includes prefix search. originally, the reds does not index the prefix of words. The articles that have word
tomatocan not be found by search query
tom. Users need to input the full query
tomatoto found them. With this library, keyword
tomis indexed for
$ npm install reds-thai
The first thing you'll want to do is create a
Search instance, which allows you to pass a
key, used for namespacing within Redis so that you may have several searches in the same db.
var search = reds-thai.createSearch('pets');
reds-thai acts against arbitrary numeric or string based ids, so you could utilize this library with essentially anything you wish, even combining data stores. The following example just uses an array for our "database", containing some strings, which we add to reds-thai by calling
Search#index() padding the body of text and an id of some kind, in this case the index.
var strs = ;strs;strs;strs;strs;strs;strs;strs;strs;strs;
To perform a query against reds-thai simply invoke
Search#query() with a string, and pass a callback, which receives an array of ids when present, or an empty array otherwise.
Search results for "fer": - Loki, Jane, and Tobi are ferrets - Mustachio is the Ferrari
By default reds-thai performs an intersection of the search words, the following example would yield the following output:
Search results for "tobi dollars": - Tobi wants four dollars
We can tweak reds-thai to perform a union by passing either "union" or "or" to
reds-thai.search() after the callback, indicating that any of the constants computed may be present for the id to match.
The intersection would yield the following since only one string contains both "Tobi" and "dollars".
Search results for "tobi dollars": - Tobi wants four dollars - Tobi only wants $4 - Loki, Jane, and Tobi are ferrets
var search = reds-thai;searchindex'Foo bar baz' 'abc';searchindex'Foo bar' 'bcd';search;search;
About on English Language
Currently reds-thai strips stop words and applies the metaphone and porter stemmer algorithms to the remaining English words before mapping the constants in Redis sets (Thai words not apply). For example the following text:
Tobi is a ferret and he only wants four dollars
Converts to the following constant map:
Tobi: 'TB'ferret: 'FRT'wants: 'WNTS'four: 'FR'dollars: 'DLRS'
This also means that phonetically similar words will match, for example "stefen", "stephen", "steven" and "stefan" all resolve to the constant "STFN". reds-thai takes this further and applies the porter stemming algorithm to "stem" words, for example "counts", and "counting" become "count".
Consider we have the following bodies of text:
Tobi really wants four dollars For some reason tobi is always wanting four dollars
The following search query will then match both of these bodies, and "wanting", and "wants" both reduce to "want".
tobi wants four dollars
