Dezi :: a REST search engine platform

Dezi is a search engine platform based on Swish3, Apache Lucy, OpenSearch and Plack. Written in Perl, Dezi is conceptually similar to the Lucene-based Solr or Elasticsearch projects: a HTTP-based search platform capable of indexing multiple document formats (HTML, XML, PDF, DOC, XLS, etc) and returning faceted results in a variety of formats (XML, JSON).

See the Git source code repository for the code.
