Description

In version 2.4 of Hue, the open source Web UI that makes Apache Hadoop easier to use, a new app was added in addition to more than 150 fixes: Search!

Using this app, which is based on Apache Solr, you can now search across Hadoop data just like you would do keyword searches with Google or Yahoo! In addition, a wizard lets you tweak the result snippets and tailors the search experience to your needs.

The new Hue Search app uses the regular Solr API underneath the hood, yet adds a remarkable list of UI features that makes using search over data stored in Hadoop a breeze. It integrates with the other Hue apps like File Browser for looking at the index file in a few clicks.
