An full search page crawler to enable complex and customized searching abilities.
An easy to use full-website page crawler to make provide search results on your page. The crawler module gather all information about the sites on the configured domain and stores the index in the database. From there you can now create search queries to provide search results. There are also helper methods which provide intelligent search results by splitting the input into multiple search queries (used by default).
Install the module via composer:
composer require luyadev/luya-module-crawler:^1.0
After installation via Composer include the module to your configuration file within the modules section.
'crawler' => [ 'class' => 'luya\crawler\frontend\Module', 'baseUrl' => 'https://luya.io', ], 'crawleradmin' => 'luya\crawler\admin\Module',
baseUrlis the domain you want to crawler all information.
After setup the module in your config you have to run the migrations and import command (to setup permissions):
./vendor/bin/luya migrate ./vendor/bin/luya import
To execute the command (and run the crawler proccess) use the crawler command
crawl, you should put this command in cronjob to make sure your index is up-to-date:
Make sure your page is in utf8 mode (
<meta charset="utf-8"/>) and make sure to set the language
<html lang="<?= Yii::$app->composition->language; ?>">.
In order to provide current crawl results you should create a cronjob which crawls the page each night:
cd httpdocs/current && ./vendor/bin/luya crawler/crawl
You can also get statistic results enabling a cronjob executing each week:
Make a post request with
query to the
crawler/default/index route and render the view as follows:
<?php use luya\helpers\Url; use yii\widgets\LinkPager; use luya\crawler\widgets\DidYouMeanWidget; /* @var $query string The lookup query encoded */ /* @var $language string */ /* @var $this \luya\web\View */ /* @var $provider \yii\data\ActiveDataProvider */ /* @var $searchModel \luya\crawler\models\Searchdata */ ?> <form class="searchpage__searched-form" action="<?= Url::toRoute(['/crawler/default/index']); ?>" method="get"> <input id="search" name="query" type="search" value="<?= $query ?>"> <input type="submit" value="Search"/> </form> <h2><?= $provider->totalCount; ?> Results</h2> <?= DidYouMeanWidget::widget(['searchModel' => $searchModel]); ?> <?php foreach($provider->models as $item): /* @var $item \luya\crawler\models\Index */ ?> <h3><?= $item->title; ?></h3> <p><?= $item->preview($query); ?></p> <a href="<?= $item->url; ?>"><?= $item->url; ?></a> <?php endforeach; ?> <?= LinkPager::widget(['pagination' => $provider->pagination]); ?>
You can use crawler tags to trigger certains events or store informations:
||Ignores a certain content from indexing.|
||Ignore a full page for the crawler, keep in mind that links will be added to index inside the ignore page.|
||Sometimes you want to group your results by a section of a page, in order to let crawler know about the group/section of your current page. Now you can group your results by the
