README

Convert a boolean search query into a query that is compatible with a fulltext search.

Notes

This library is a maintained fork of the original project "BooleanSearchParser" created by DuncanOglethat, available here.

The goal of this project is to iron out bugs, optimise the code, add new features and make it compatible with future versions of PHP.

Requirements

  • PHP 7.1 or higher

Installation

composer require pecee/boolean-query-parser

Parsing a query

$parser = new \Pecee\BooleanQueryParser\BooleanQueryParser();

$formattedQuery = $parser->parse('ict OR (technology AND bob)');

Output

ict (+technology +bob)

Order

Order and brackets are important, more often than not OR logic takes priority

sales OR finance AND manager will become sales finance +manager and not sales +finance +manager

Examples

Input Output
ict +ict
ict it +ict +it
ict OR it ict it
NOT ict -ict
it NOT ict +it -ict
web AND (ict OR it) +web +(ict it)
ict OR (it AND web) ict (+it +web)
ict NOT (ict AND it AND web) +ict -(+ict +it +web)
php OR (NOT web NOT embedded ict OR it) php (-web -embedded ict it)
(web OR embedded) (ict OR it) +(web embedded) +(ict it)
develop AND (web OR (ict AND php)) +develop +(web (+ict +php))
"ict null
"ict OR it" +"ict OR it"

Advanced examples

Input Output
"business development" or "it sales" and (danish or dutch or italian or denmark or holland or netherlands or italy) "business development" "it sales" +(danish dutch italian denmark holland netherlands italy)
(procurement or buying or purchasing) and (marine or sea) and (engineering or engineer) +(procurement buying purchasing) +(marine sea) +(engineering engineer)
