Introducing BrilliantCut

BrilliantCut makes it possible to filter the catalog UI using facets. The project includes facets like language, market, and category. It also includes a free text search, and the possibility to choose if the search should apply to children or descendants. The more important feature in BrilliantCut is the possibility to create your own facets for filtering the catalog UI. It’s very easy to creating your own facets in the catalog UI using a fluent API.

Github

The code is open source and can be found at http://github.com/jonasbergqvist/brilliantcut. More information about the project will be found at that page.

Installation

The nuget packages is located at “http://nuget.jobe.employee.episerver.com/”. Add a nuget package source to that directory in Visual Studio to be able to install “BrilliantCut”. When the package source has been added in Visual Studio, the packages can be installed to your site by writing “install-package brilliantcut.widget” in the package manager console.

I installed on the latest build last week, and it worked. I hope it works for you now Khurram.

I am curious if this is still working for people?  We are on CMS 9.8.3, Commerce 9.14, Find 11.1.5.4342, and Find.Commerce 9.5.3.  Basically, We can install the NuGet Widgit, which installs the Core too.  I can add the BrilliantCut gadget and see the initial option buttons of No Filtering, Filter result list, etc.  When we add the Initialization Module as described in the video (pasted below), neither of the the facet items I added display.  Meaning, filters for Children and Descendents options don't display, nor does the text box.

using System;
using System.Linq;
using BrilliantCut.Core;
using BrilliantCut.Core.Filters.Implementations;
using BrilliantCut.Core.FilterSettings;
using EPiServer.Framework;
using EPiServer.Framework.Initialization;

namespace Polaris.CMS.Core.Initialization
{
[InitializableModule]
[ModuleDependency(typeof(EPiServer.Web.InitializationModule))]
public class BrilliantCutInitialization : IInitializableModule
{
public void Initialize(InitializationEngine context)
{
context.Locate.Advanced.GetInstance()
.Facet()
.Facet(new TextboxFilterSetting(50));
}

public void Uninitialize(InitializationEngine context)
{
//Add uninitialization logic
}
}
}

There is probably several things that needs to be worked on for the last versions of Commerce. I havn't had time to work on this for over a year, sorry for that.
