sqlitefts 0.4.0

A Python binding for tokenizers of SQLite Full Text Search


sqlitefts-python provides binding for tokenizer of SQLite Full-Text search(FTS3/4). It allows you to write tokenizers in Python.

SQLite has Full-Text search feature FTS3/FTS4 along with some predefined tokenizers. It is easy to use and has enough functionality. Python has a built-in SQLite module, so that it is easy to use and deploy. You don’t need anything else to full-text search.

But… the predefined tokenizers are not enough for some languages including Japanese. Also it is not easy to write own tokenizers. This module provides ability to write your own tokenizers using Python without C compiler by ctypes and CFFI.

It also has ranking functions based on peewee.


  • Python 2.7, Python 3.3+, and PyPy2.7, PyPy3.2, PyPy3.3
  • CFFI
  • FTS3/4 enabled SQLite (for Windows, you may need to download and replace sqlite3.dll)
