INSTALLATION

script/plugin install git://github.com/dcrec1/acts_as_solr_reloaded.git

REQUIREMENTS

CONFIGURATION

Configuration is done in the config/solr.yml file. If you need a Solr server, you can clone this jetty-solr project:

github.com/dcrec1/jetty-solr

USAGE

Just include the line below to any of your ActiveRecord models:

acts_as_solr

Or if you want, you can specify only the fields that should be indexed:

acts_as_solr :fields => [:name, :author]

Then to find instances of your model, just do:

Model.search(query) #query is a string representing your query

Case you want to use dynamic attributes or geolocalization, you can use this generators that setup the database:

script/generate dynamic_attributes_migration
script/generate local_migration

and then configure your model like this:

acts_as_solr :dynamic_attributes => true,
             :spatial => true

If you want to integrate the model with acts_as_taggable_on, just add the option :taggable => true :

acts_as_solr :taggable => true

Please see ActsAsSolr::ActsMethods for a complete info

PAGINATION

In your controller:

@search = Product.search "beer", :page => 2, :per_page => 20

And in your view:

will_paginate @search

TESTING

To test code that uses acts_as_solr_reloaded you must start a Solr server for the test environment and also start MongoDB.
