A Reimplementation arXiv’s Search System Now Live (Ver. 0.1)
From the arXiv Blog:
Today we launched a reimplementation of our search system. As part of our broader strategy for arXiv-NG, we are incrementally decoupling components from the classic arXiv codebase, and replacing them with more modular services developed in Python.
The most important win for us in this milestone is that the new backend lays the groundwork for more dramatic improvements to search, our APIs, and other components targeted for reimplementation in arXiv-NG.
- Move to Elasticsearch
- UI “Facelift”
Better support for author names
Note: You can now search by ORCID ID
- Better support for DOI
- Better Wildcard Support
