About Sunburnt

Sunburnt is a library to interface with a Solr instance from Python. It was written by Toby White <>, originally for use with the Timetric platform (

Sunburnt is designed to provide a high level API for

  • querying Solr in a Pythonic way, without having to understand Solr's query syntax in depth, and
  • inserting Python objects into a Solr index with the minimum of fuss,

and particularly importantly, to provide Python-level error-checking. If you make a mistake, sunburnt will do its best to tell you why, rather than just throwing back an obscure Solr error.
