Hah, that … sounds familiar!
Not yet, I've been a bit swamped by people emailing me to "just fix stuff", which took my motivation to do any dev work well and truly away
@Firesphere Did you end up making any advances into an ElasticSearch compat layer in
silverstripe-solr-search? I vaguely remember you talking about that. Obviously going to be a leaky abstraction, but on the
addField() level we could make it compatible. Just brainstorming at the moment, don’t get too spooked 😄
Aside: Elastic App Search looks quite nice from a dev/author/user/ops perspective, although I don’t really see a way to get from A to B on our platforms in a way that doesn’t double up all our efforts (and basically do everything half as good heh).
fulltextsearch distributes a "quickstart" script that might help with a more dedicated setup: https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-fulltextsearch/blob/3/bin/fulltextsearch_quickstart

Fair enough. I'll see what I can find. Thanks for the help 🙂
If it's SS3, yeah, you're stuck with Solr 4, no clue how to run that as a daemon though
@Firesphere set the channel topic: For questions about Solr, or any general search-related topics. Complaints and feature requests also welcome! https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-fulltextsearch or https://github.com/Firesphere/silverstripe-solr-search
That's fair, the first site we'll be looking to implement it for is silverstripe 3 so probably using the module pinned at the top of the channel using solr 4?
Not sure about modern versions of Solr, sorry. @Firesphere has an excellent module that supports most of them, old and new 🙂
Depends on what version of Solr you're planning to use
