This gem provides Rails support for websolr.com, and a command-line tool to interact with the indexes hosted there. The Rails support is reverse-compatible with acts_as_solr.
Ruby documentation is at onemorecloud.github.com/websolr-rails
There is no numbered release yet, but the master branch is always considered stable.

Please refer to the CHANGELOG
$: gem sources -a gems.github.com $: sudo gem install onemorecloud-websolr-rails

# Just include the line below to any of your ActiveRecord models:
# Or if you want, you can specify only the fields that should be indexed:
acts_as_solr :fields => [:name, :author]
# Then to find instances of your model, just do:
Model.find_by_solr(query) #query is a string representing your query
# Please see ActsAsSolr::ActsMethods for a complete info
If you would like to mock out Solr calls so that a Solr server is not needed (and your tests will run much faster), just add this to your `test_helper.rb` or similar:
class ActsAsSolr::Post def self.execute(request) true end end
Websolr is by Onemorecloud.
