The E-Commerce module of ERPNext optionally uses RediSearch to enable superfast search functionality which is configurable via E Commerce Settings.

Once installed and configured, RediSearch will be used to super charge the search functionality of the E-Commerce website. This includes features like fuzzy-word searching, autocomplete, results ranking and customizable field indexing.

Installation Instructions



On successful completion of the above instructions, a redisearch.so binary file will be generated in the RediSearch/build directory.

and search should be one of the modules.

You can also load the module on a running redis instance by running the following command in the redis-cli:



We placed the redisearch.so module in the /etc directory, but it can be placed anywhere in the file system. We have used this directory because in the future the loadmodule line will be populated in the config file automatically and it will assume the binary is in the` /etc` directory.
