In some reasonable directory on your box you need to get hold of
hurry.query version 0.9.3:

%> svn co http://codespeak.net/svn/z3/hurry.query/tag/hurry.query-0.9.3/
%> cd hurry.query
%> python setup.py install

The last line should install this version into your Python path -
perhaps within a virtualenv.
You need to pin this version on your versions.cfg:

hurry.query = 0.9.3

I've also pinned zc.catalog to 1.3.0, but Martijn tells me that 1.2.0 is fine.

*Revert all changes to your version.cfg file too*

Rerun buildout and make sure it runs fine. If it doesn't, double check
everything and come back to the list... we'll help you. Restart the

"Done... 10 objects"

I get the return string from the expedient render method that I had to
add. So I've changed it read:

 86     def render(self):
 87         s = "Found %d results\n" % len(self.text_search)
 88         for result in self.text_search:
 89             s += "Found: %s\n" % result.body
 90         return s

Seems to find results when I use:



I'm convinced that Sebastian has a template file that he can share
that will format things better than this.

Oh,  and there was a typo in 'update' within ProtonSearch, it should read:

 82     def update(self, search=""):
 83         if len(search) > 1:
 84             self.field_search, self.text_search =

Good luck!
