The blevex repository contains optional add-ons to bleve which cannot be a part of the main repository for the following reasons:
Bleve does not directly import any of the sub-packages with the blevex repository. If your application would like to use one of these packages, they should import the package directly.
Bleve supports using cznic/b as a KVStore implementation. Although this implementation is pure Go, it does not offer reader isolation, so it does not fully satisfy the bleve interface requirements. Under certain restrictions it can still be used safely.
Bleve supports using the ICU project to tokenize words. For most languages Bleve’s built-in unicode segmentation will work fine. However, languages which require dictionary-based segmentation may still require this library. This requires a C/C++ dependency, please see Building.
NOTE: It is recommended to get the most recent version of ICU possible. Older versions often included with distributions do not support language based tokenization.
