[Answered ]-Django Haystack and Xapian


Engine should be:

'ENGINE': 'xapian_backend.XapianEngine',

It is not included in the haystack package, but is separate. It probably still won’t work. It doesn’t seem to have been upgraded to work with haystack 2.x.

Update: it has now been updated.


Solved this issue by copying the xapian_backend.py to haystack/backends as suggested by the readme
