Re: [Wikitech-ambassadors] Fwd: Deployment highlights for the week of Sept 23rd

Billinghurst
Excellent news! Would someone be able to provide or point to some
configuration and examples that English Wikisource can utilise to allow
some side-by-side searches, and some guidance that can be provided to the
community on the new features and their use (if there us any).

Regards, Billinghurst

I think Nik's e-mail from when we deployed to mw.org is still the
best info.

CirrusSearch is pretty much a work alike for the current search so I
haven't done too much documenting.  I'll fill out
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Search/CirrusSearchFeatures a boiled
down list of features.  The big one I think you care about is that
templates are evaluated during indexing.

If you can't wait you can read the regression tests here:
http://git.wikimedia.org/tree/mediawiki%2Fextensions%2FCirrusSearch.git/master/tests%2Fbrowser%2Ffeatures
.  They are written in cucumber so they should be reasonably readable.
 Fair warning: I use the term "page" and "article" pretty much
interchangeably.  Also one of the tests is failing on my development
machine but I haven't commented it out with an associated bug like I
usually do because, well, I like looking at it failing I guess.  The
bug is here: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53426

So nice to see what Nik has done here.  Information on running these tests
is in the README:
http://git.wikimedia.org/blob/mediawiki%2Fextensions%2FCirrusSearch.git/a7d5386c659e0afff1bae24967b333b06f639512/tests%2Fbrowser%2FREADME

I'd like to get those tests running in MediaWiki-Vagrant but I just
can't find the time at the moment.  In other news,
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Search/CirrusSearchFeatures now has a
reasonably complete list of CirrusSearch's features.

From that page:

That's awesome! :-)

I hope you all will write up a blog post after CirrusSearch has been
deployed to all Wikimedia wikis. This is great news.
