OpenSearchServer is a search engine created by Emmanuel Keller. The first open source version was released in 2008.

OpenSearchServer was developed internally for the website of Usine Nouvelle. Based on Lucene, it differs from Solr in its HTTP accessible graphical admin interface, its highly advanced site crawling capacity (thread management, page exclusion, index programming, etc.), a database indexing system and a file crawler. OpenSearchServer also interfaces easily with any application by means of a REST interface. In addition, OpenSearchServer is easy to expand with custom modules that enhance its functionalities. OpenSearchServer can also interpret the content of a number of file formats (OpenOffice, MS Office, PDF, etc.).
OpenSearchServer is distributed under the GPL. The company of the same name, based in Paris, does most of the development work and provides support for the tool.
OpenSearchServer is written in Java.

“ J'utilise OpenSearch Server pour un site internet à fort contenu, et j'en suis particulièrement satisfait. Je l'ai associé à un site Wordpress via un plugin (gratuit!) existant, qui a certes demandé un peu de travail pour améliorer l'affichage des résultats (mais ce n'est pas la faute d'Open Search Server mais du plugin) mais très efficace. Utilisation de Facets, priorisation des mots-clefs par type etc ... j'ai pu configurer le tout sans une ligne de code. Merci à l'auteur de ce moteur GPL! ”
