SearchResult API

class SearchResult(app_label, model_name, pk, score, **kwargs)

The SearchResult class provides structure to the results that come back from the search index. These objects are what a SearchQuerySet will return when evaluated.

Attribute Reference

The class exposes the following useful attributes/properties:

  • app_label - The application the model is attached to.
  • model_name - The model’s name.
  • pk - The primary key of the model.
  • score - The score provided by the search engine.
  • object - The actual model instance (lazy loaded).
  • model - The model class.
  • verbose_name - A prettier version of the model’s class name for display.
  • verbose_name_plural - A prettier version of the model’s plural class name for display.
  • search_index - Returns the SearchIndex class associated with this result.
  • distance - On geo-spatial queries, this returns a Distance object representing the distance the result was from the focused point.

Method Reference

Useful for serializing results. Only returns the fields Haystack’s indexes are aware of as being ‘stored’.
