User interface

Introduction

The Funnelback user interface is normally a web page that allows the user to enter a query, and view the results.

The user interface relies on several components working together:

search forms / templates
are the templates for generating the query form and result pages.
search.html
is the end point that handles web requests and the generation of web pages.
PADRE
is the query processor that accepts a query, searches the index and returns the results.
