Re: Flare plugin (with Ruby Solr library and acts_as_solr plugin)
[In reply to]
Flare is currently not what I'd consider production ready, but it all
depends on your needs. It is a simple plugin that ties Solr to RoR
for faceted browsing, full-text search, and Ajax suggest. It's what
I'd call a hack / proof-of-concept.
There isn't any additional documentation about it. But there isn't
much code that comprises it either, so it's quite approachable,
though a bit ugly in parts. You'll find the plugin here:
A couple of directories up is an actual Rails application using that
The Blacklight team has been working on a more sophisticated version
of Flare. You can browse around their repository to track down what
they've done: http://blacklight.rubyforge.org
