For efficient master data management, it is essential to work with a powerful search function. Blackbit's Pimcore Better Search Bundle is the drop-in replacement for Pimcore's standard backend search. It gives you a search experience like you're used to with popular web search engines.

Unser neues Bundle für Pimcore: Better Search

The new Better Search Bundle does not require complex configuration or the installation of external applications to support its functionality. Yet it does many things better than Pimcore's own solution.

What makes the Better Search Plugin different?

The new bundle from Blackbit uses TNT Search as its underlying library and thus supports the following functions:

  • search for prefixes and suffixes,
  • any word length or number of characters,
  • a fuzzy and error-tolerant search,
  • word root search in many languages,
  • thanks to the implemented TF/IDF algorithm, a better sorting of the search results,
  • as well as the so-called n-gram search, which enables use with languages such as Chinese, Japanese and all other languages that do not have word separators.

The Better Search plugin functions as a fully-fledged replacement for Pimcore's search functions: in the graphical user interface, you can use all the controls in exactly the same way as in Pimcore's standard search. Only the underlying indexing and search logic is changed by our plugin.
