Lucidworks View is a consumer-facing front end for Lucidworks Fusion. It provides a basic search interface with simple configuration, so you can quickly deliver a Fusion-based search solution with minimal development. View is powered by Fusion, Angular, and SASS.

Getting Started

  1. Download a binary and unpack the binary.

    Alternative instructions for cloning this repo available here

  2. Change into the binary directory:

    cd app
  3. While you're working on your project, run:

    ./view.sh start

    This will compile the SaSS, assemble your Angular app, and create FUSION_CONFIG.js (if you haven't created it already). You'll see output that tells you which port was selected:

    [BS] Access URLs:
    ------------------------------------
         Local: http://localhost:3000
      External: http://<external IP>:3000
    ------------------------------------
    

    The default is port 3000, but if that port is already in use then the app selects the next highest available port.

  4. Now go to http://localhost:<port> in your browser to see it in action.

    The first time you browse to the app, you'll see a login page. Use your Fusion username and password. To enable anonymous access, edit the anonymous_access keys in FUSION_CONFIG.js.
