Full Text Extraction Tools
VuFind®'s import tools include support for using external software to extract full text from external documents (PDF, Word, etc.). In order to take advantage of this, you need to install an appropriate tool (see options below) and point VuFind® to the software by editing the fulltext.ini file within your local settings directory.
Tika is the recommended full-text extraction tool for use with VuFind®.
Aperture is supported as an alternative to Tika. However, Aperture is no longer in active development, so users are strongly encouraged to use Tika instead (see above).
