Scorched is a sunburnt offspring and like all offspring it tries to make things better or at least different.
Git Repository and issue tracker: https://github.com/lugensa/scorched
Following some major differences:
- No validation of queries in client code (make code much more lightweight)
- Send and receive as json. (Faster 20k docs from 6.5s to 1.3s)
- API is more lightweight e.g.
addconsumes now only dicts.
- Wildcard search strings need to be explicitly set.
- Python 3
- Drops support for Solr < 4.3.0
First checkout the sources:
Now create a virtual-env and install some dependencies:
cd scorched virtualenv ./ bin/pip install -e . bin/pip install -e .[test]
Start the Solr server to test against:
# DEBUG=true|false: verbose output of Solr server on|off # SOLR_VERSION=x.y.z (the version to test against) # the Solr startup script reports the pid of the Solr process SOLR_VERSION=4.10.2 SOLR_PORT=44177 DEBUG=true SOLR_CONFS="scorched/tests/solrconfig.xml" ./testing-solr.sh # stop Solr kill -9 $pid
Running the tests:
SOLR_URL=http://localhost:44177/solr/core0 ./bin/nosetests -s scorched
