Sounds like cool stuff. I will check it out.

Not sure if you've played with Simile's Exhibit project, but it handles faceted search quite well all from the client side. Additionally, there is an Exhibit Drupal module that integrates Exhibit with Drupal and creates the JSON data feeds out of nodes, users, taxonomy, or views. Cool stuff!

Thanks for this it's something that has almost persuaded me to revert to drupal 5. I have been to lazy to look at the source myself and see how hard it would be (still a drupal n00b).

If you want any help testing this I will be happy to fork my current site and give it a go.

I'm new to drupal and am using the drupal 6 pathc for the faceted search. Is there any documentation that shows how to implement the search page for the facets?. I am able to create the facets that i want but dont know how to show the results when a catgory is clicked in a facet.


For a project I needed the faceted_search module and that project was screaming for being made in Drupal 6. Since there isn't a drupal 6 version of this module, I decided to just port it myself.

The patch isn't complete yet. I just ported the things we needed directly. When I have some spare time, I will continue the port.

Faceted Search Views and Field Keyword Filter are untested, but the views will not work for sure, since it's not updated yet for views 2.
