The last known compatible versions are Search API stable 1.x with Facets Alpha 9.


The Facet module allows site builders to easily create and manage faceted search interfaces. In addition to the UI components that come out of the box, themers and module developers can build their own widgets that can optionally be contributed back to Facet API works with Drupal Core Search and Search API, meaning that code and configuration can be reused as-is with the most popular search solutions available to Drupal.

Facets is a Drupal 8 and above only solution. Please see Facet API for a Drupal 7 solution.

Not a coder? Excellent!! We need your help to find use cases and interesting search interfaces that this module should strive to achieve. Post a feature request to the issue queue with a screenshot and detailed explanation of the desired functionality.


The architecture of this module is a consolidation of the Search Lucene API and Apache Solr Search Integration facet building code. Much inspiration comes from the Faceted Search module and Flamenco projects. Many additional use cases and identification of various assumptions were brought about by the integration with the Search API module.
The Drupal 8 version was inspired by the functionality of Facet API (Drupal 7) and the facetapi_bonus (Drupal 7) project.
