I just launched a search application for the Monier-Williams dictionary, which is the definitive Sanskrit-English dictionary.
See it in action here: http://sanskrit.supermind.org
The app is built in Python and uses the Whoosh search engine. I chose Whoosh instead of Solr or ElasticSearch because I wanted to try building a search app which didn't depend on Java.
– full-text search in Devanagari, English, IAST, ascii and HK
– results link to page scans
– more frequently occurring word senses are boosted higher in search results
– visually displays the MW level or depth of a word with list indentation
