Video Introduction to Bluge

On September 29th we released the first developer preview of Bluge, and my sponsors were invited to join a video introduction, followed by an open discussion. The presentation portion of this was recorded, and is now being made available to the public.

Two more introductory sessions are planned, the next one focusing on the completely rewritten aggregation framework. Become a sponsor to secure your invitation to these calls.

Site Search Powered by Bluge

Second, the implementation is significantly cleaner and easier to maintain than our previous attempts to make the blevesearch. [Read More]

Bluge Developer Preview

Today we flipped the switch, and the Bluge repository is now open to the public. Bluge is open-source and distributed under the Apache License 2.0.

Sponsors of my work were invited to introductory session this afternoon, and the initial response seems positive. A recording of the session will be made available in the future. [Read More]

I’ve applied my experience building and maintaining Go code for the last eight years to transform Bluge into something I consider a more solid foundation for the future. [Read More]

A plan to release Bleve v1.0.0 and adopt Go modules

Bluge Labs has been up and running for a few months now, and I’m happy to finally be able to share one of the major projects I’ve been working on. Bleve has seen wide adoption despite never having an official v1.0.0 release. Additionally, in the past year Go modules have matured, and the community has increasingly requested proper support from the library. This is our proposal to address both of these issues.
