How to Build a Simple Apache Solr Search App

My coworker Erik Hatcher put together a three-part series on how to build a basic search app in Apache Solr with just a few simple commands.

Getting data into Solr using bin/post: Erik walks through basic ingestion and indexing of getting your data into your Solr index with the power of Solr 5’s new bin/post utility.

Visualizing search results: /browse and beyond: Solr 5 has an easier /browse function so you can quickly run searches in the browser to see how your data has been indexed.

Putting it together realistically: example/files: A Concrete Useful Domain-Specific Example of bin/post and /browse: Remember the old Google Desktop app that would index and search your hard drive with the power of Google? Erik shows you how to build your own version of that with Apache Solr.
