What is Examine?

The Examine documentation is found here https://shazwazza.github.io/Examine/ and the source code repository for Examine is here https://github.com/Shazwazza/Examine.

Examine allows you to index and search data quickly. Examine is a library that sits on top of Lucene.Net, a high-performance search engine library. Examine provides APIs to make searching and indexing as straightforward as possible. UmbracoExamine adds an extra layer to access Umbraco-specific APIs for indexing and searching content and media.

Examine is provider based so it is extensible and allows you to configure your own custom indexes if required. The backoffice search in Umbraco also uses this same search engine, so you can trust that you're in good hands.
