This plugin adds Cell support (for indexing rich documents) to Sunspot (developed against Sunspot 1.2.1).
The code is based on the patch included here: outoftime.lighthouseapp.com/projects/20339/tickets/98-solr-cell
Solr Cell libraries (dist/apache-solr-cell-1.4.X.jar and +contrib/extraction/lib/*.jar+ from the standard Solr distribution) placed in the /solr/lib directory as created by the Sunspot gem, in development environment. Your production setup might vary.
Adjustments to the Solr schema.xml:
<fieldType name=“ignored” stored=“false” indexed=“false” multiValued=“true” class=“solr.StrField” /> and <dynamicField name=“*_attachment” stored=“true” type=“text” multiValued=“true” indexed=“true”/> <dynamicField name=“ignored_*” type=“ignored”/>
This version assumes the attachment attribute has method .data, that returns contents of the attachment.
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
