Build Status

Yet another library for talking to Solr with Python with language and sharding support.

Supported Python versions: 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5


Install it from PyPi with

pip install pysolarized

Simple usage

Communication with Solr is done via Solr class instance configured with endpoints.

Single Solr core is used by just passing the core URL to the constructor

import pysolarized
solr = pysolarized.solr.Solr("http://localhost:8080/solr/core1")

If there are multiple endpoints for multiple languages, you have to pass dictionary of endpoints and default endpoint which will take documents with unrecognised language.

import pysolarized
solr = pysolarized.solr.Solr({"en": "http://localhost:8080/solr/core-en", "si": "http://localhost:8080/solr/core-si"}, default_endpoint="en")


Queries are automatically done over all configured cores and results are aggregated automatically. Just call the query method

results = solr.query("Ljubljana", 
					filters = {"country": "Slovenia" },
					columns = ["id", "city_name"],
					sort = ["city_name desc"],	
					start = 0,
					rows = 20)					

All parameters except the query string itself are optional.

Query call returns an instance of SolrResults class or None if there was a network/server error while executing the query.

class SolrResults:
    def __init__(self):
        self.query_time = None      # Time the query took
        self.results_count = None   # Number of found results
        self.start_index = None     # Index of start
        self.documents = []         # Found results
        self.facets = {}            # Found facet counts
        self.highlights = {}        # Highligts for found documents

Adding documents

Documents are represented as a python dictionary with field names as keys. To insert new documents into Solr index call the add method with list of documents and commit after all insertions have been completed.

solr.add([ { "id": "c1en", "city_name": "Vienna", "country": "Austria", "language": "en" }, 
		   { "id": "c1si", "city_name": "Dunaj", "country": "Avstrija", "language": "si"}])

Note that pysolarized will look for language field in the document to determine to which Solr core the document will be dispatched to. If the field is missing or the value doesn't match any of configured cores, it'll dispatch the document to the default endpoint.

Other actions

To delete a document from server use the delete call and commit afterwards:


To clear all data from all cores use deleteAll
