Many tamil scholars are looking for a search engine for tamil literatures.
They often look for the following things.
1. search for any word in all literature. highlight the line of
occurrence, if possible one line above and below.
2. frequency of any given words
3. major used, minor used words by any given author
The literature are available in text format here.
There are people who scraps tamil websites regularly.
They have around 180 GB of tamil in plain text format.
When they do a grep for any word it tools 8-10 hours on normal desktop.
I think we can use bigdata tools for them.
Can we use elasticsearch/druid for their purpose?
How to import the plaintext to these tools?
share your thoughts on this.
