SolrNet is an Apache Solr client for .NET

SolrNet does not attempt to abstract much over Solr, it's assumed that you know what Solr is and how to use it, just as you need to know relational databases before using an ORM.

Paul Bouwer has written an excellent guide for contributors starting from scratch (no previous Git knowledge required).
In a nutshell:

  • Don't worry about code formatting, styles, etc.
  • Tests are a must. Without tests, changes will not be merged, except for very specific cases.
  • Whenever possible, favor immutable classes and pure code.
  • If you're adding a new feature or making a breaking change, update the corresponding documentation.
