We don't yet have a web-based version of the sample solution, but hopefully this video will provide greater understanding: (47MB, 150secs) It shows the sample solution being compiled, building a trove-file, and then searching for a word. (confession) the sample solution in the video is not yet compressing the trove-file but, because each filename and each word are stored only once, the trove-file is already only 10% of the size of all indexed files. Compressing the trove-file (manually) further shrinks it by another 70% (89KB -> 2.5KB). Fun stuff. Questions welcome.
