This project provides an Open Source, full-featured and high-performance search engine
CLucene is an open source, scalable, cross-platform and free port of the Apache Lucene software, written in C++ and designed as a full-featured and high-performance text search engine.

Because is written in C++ and not in Java, CLucene is much faster than Apache Lucene. It is a searching and indexing API, which aims to be a very good replacement for Lucene.

Being written pure C++ code, and using CMake, CLucene should work on any machine and support all major operating systems, including Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. It also works on mobile OSes.

What's New in version 0.9.23
  • Dropped autoconf and individual solutions for each IDE.
  • Everything is now done through CMake. CMake can generate makefiles for lots of different build platforms. See README/INSTALL files. Cmake scripts were vastly improved, resulting in less #ifdefs in the code for platform based
  • logic. The ideal of all platform specific logic being done in cmake is not quite reached, but that's the aim.
  • Public/private class distinction. Headers with _ prefix are deamed private and will not be distributed, therefore do not use this classes.
