To paraphrase Chris Rock:
Good lawd that's a lotta feeds!
, I remember you from your previous post where you were documenting your search criteria in a Word document and got tripped up by Word "smart quotes". Your manual task of documenting your Search Channels inspired me to create an Awasu Application Plugin that examines your .CHANNEL files and produces Search Channel documentation for you. Technically this is still in the "rough draft" stage, but it shouldn't be too hard to complete.
Search Channel Report
For the Search Channel Report I would display all Search Channels and would display the Channel's Name, Description and the Search Query. I might even try to explain the Search Query in simplified English. Using your previous post as an example; I'd display your raw query ("plant closing"~3) OR ("plant closure"~3)
and also display an English explanation such as "find 'plant' and 'closing' within 3 words of each other, or find 'plant' and 'closure' within 3 words of each other"
. I've done this kind of thing before, but I didn't have some of Awasu's advanced search features such as Boost Factor or Proximity Search to deal with and I'm writing these Plugins in Python and I'm not a Python expert, so progress is a little sloooooooooooooooooow. Other Search Channel attributes such as Max Search Results, Score Cutoff, Search Locations (Title, Description, URL) and how frequently the Channel is set to update could also be displayed.
This would help make your Awasu Search Channel's self-documenting, instead of having to maintain seperate documentation. Whenever you update a Search Channel, just re-run the Search Channel Report
Application Plugin, and your documention will be updated too.
