Sunburnt is a Python-based interface for working with the Apache Solr search engine.
Please send queries/comments/suggestions to the mailing list.
Bugs can be filed on the issue tracker.
It's tested with Solr 1.4.1 and 3.1; previous versions were known to work with 1.3 and 1.4 as well.
Full documentation can be found at http://opensource.timetric.com/sunburnt/index.html.
Sunburnt will happily deal with dates stored either as Python datetime objects, or as mx.DateTime objects. The latter are preferable, having better semantics and a wider representation range. They will be used if present, otherwise sunburnt will fall back to Python datetime objects.
If you're using native Python datetime objects with Solr (rather than mx.DateTime objects) you should also have pytz installed to guarantee correct timezone handling.
Optional (only to run the tests)
