This plugin adds full text search to ikiwiki, using the xapian engine, its omega frontend, and the Search::Xapian, Digest::SHA, and HTML::Scrubber perl modules (on debian, check that you have packages xapian-omega, libsearch-xapian-perl, libdigest-sha-perl and libhtml-scrubber-perl installed).

The searching page describes how to write search queries.

Ikiwiki will handle indexing new and changed page contents. Note that since it only indexes page contents, files copied by the rawhtml plugin will not be indexed, nor will other types of data files.

There is one setting you may need to use in the config file. omega_cgi should point to the location of the omega cgi program. The default location is /usr/lib/cgi-bin/omega/omega.
