Search syntaxΒΆ

Searches in lesana use the human readable query string format defined by xapian.

The simplest search is just a list of terms: e.g. searching for thing object will find entries where either thing or object is present in one of the fields with free indexing.

It is also possible to specify that a term must be in one specific field: the syntax for this is the name of the field follwed by : and the term, e.g. name:object will search for entries with the term object in the name field.

Search queries can of course include the usual logical operators AND, OR and NOT.

More modifiers are available; see the Query Parser documentation from xapian for details.
