class MatchScorer

Class MatchScorer allows you to sort documents based on the quality of query match. The scorer assigns a score based on term frequency in a document.

To use a MatchScorer, add it to the SortOptions as in the following code:

  sort_opts = search.SortOptions(match_scorer=search.MatchScorer())

This sorts the documents in descending score order. The scores will be positive.

If you want to sort in ascending order, then use the following code:

  sort_opts = search.SortOptions(match_scorer=search.MatchScorer(),
      expressions=[search.SortExpression(
          expression='_score', direction=search.SortExpression.ASCENDING,
          default_value=0.0)])

The scores in this case will be negative.

MatchScorer is defined in the google.appengine.api.search module.
