Fulltextsearch v0.7 is Out!

And you can search more content, with (almost) one click !

The main idea of the Fulltextsearch app is to provide a complete library and API for other apps to index their content. Fulltextsearch displays a search box to those apps, but also provide a page that centralize the search to all indexed content.

Today, we released 4 apps:

  • Fulltextsearch
    The core app

  • Fulltextsearch - Elasticsearch (search platform)
    The gateway for the Elasticsearch servlet

  • Fulltextsearch - Files (content provider)
    Index the content of your files, works with local, external files and group folders

  • Fulltextsearch - Bookmarks (content provider)
    Index the content of the web pages added to the bookmarks app

Important note

It is strongly adviced to disable/uninstall any old version of the app before proceding to the upgrade

After the upgrade, a reset and a full index is necessary:

 ./occ fulltextsearch:reset
 ./occ fulltextsearch:index



  • A navigation page to search within all content from the providers.
  • Fixing the display of the search results in case of multiple page.
  • The content (index and search) can be splited in Parts for a pinpointed search.
  • Rework on the exchange between platform and content providers.

Fulltextsearch - Elasticsearch

  • Improvement in the index removing

Fulltextsearch - Files

  • Added the option to limit the search to the current directory.
  • Added the option to filter by file extension.
  • Improved index and search within local files, external filesystem and group folders.
  • Changing the available sources (in the settings) does not require a full re-index anymore.
  • Bugfix: compat with strange username in shared name index.


  • Smaller improvement/bugfixes

I can’t start the worker service?

the Live feature is only available on NC14 as it was locking file on previous version. However, I don’t know anything related to that Worker

I’m just starting it as a service, but it’s disabled for now until NC 14 comes out.

I have another problem with Fulltexsearch 0.7: After resetting the index i tried to re-index it, but it seems that is not possible anymore.

I found a big file with ~780 MB after the crash: /var/lib/elasticsearch/java_pid7705.hprof

And this is the output of /var/lib/elasitcsearch/elasticsearch.log:

Maybe it needs more memory? I have installed 8 GB RAM.

How much heap space did you configure?
I am using elasticsearch docker image with environment variable "ES_JAVA_OPTS=-Xms1g -Xmx1g" giving it 1GB of heap space. You might need more depending on the size of your data.

I don’t have docker therefore i had to edit jvm.options


Now it’s working.

Thank you!
