Massive Search Bundle

2.4.1 2020-09-09 12:43 UTC


The purpose of this bundle is to provide flexible site search functionality.

This means it provides a way to index objects (for example Doctrine entities) and then to search for them using a query string.

This bundle provides:

  • Choice of search backends (ZendSearch, Elastic Search)
  • Localization
  • Doctrine ORM integration
  • Lots of extension points

By default it is configured to use the Zend Lucene library, which must be installed (see the suggests and require-dev sections in composer.json.

NOTE: This bundle is under developmenet and is not yet stable.


You can install the MassiveSearchBundle by adding it to composer.json:

composer require massive/search-bundle

And then include it in your AppKernel:

class AppKernel
    public function registerBundles()
        return array(
            // ...
            new \Massive\Bundle\SearchBundle\MassiveSearchBundle(),

You will also need to include a search library. The search libraries are listed in the suggests section of composer.json, and exact package versions can also be found in the require-dev section (as all the libraries are tested).
