Search Engine Software?

Discussion in 'Programming' started by NRLMedia, Dec 1, 2005.

    Anyone know where I can find software to create a search engine or directory?

    Any free scripts or any scripts for sale?

    Thanks :)

    Thanks

    Are they relatively easily to run or does it take a skilled coder or programmer?

    We're working on implementing nutch, which provides both a crawler and an indexer (search engine). It's written in Java.

    We're finding it a bit difficult due to it's complexity. I don't think it's a tool for the beginner. However it seems to be able to scale to millions and millions of documents. The mailing lists are also very active and very friendly, so that helps.

    And the opensource aspect means we can tailor it (which we need to do, as we're working on a country specific search engine and need to be able to dictate what sites qualify).
