I’m currently evaluating an evolution of our search technology usage,
and am hoping that the community may have some suggestions.
Solr (acts_as_solr) seems to capture most of our search requirements
(query language, scalability, facets).
Unfortunately 2 key elements fall outside the capabilities of solr
and am interested in how others would approach the solution.
- geographic queries. Would prefer to have these queries happen in
- relational (think scoped_by) queries ala
…both the above could be done post solr, but I shudder at the
scalability of such solutions.
Perhaps the solution is to add such capabilities to solr itself?
[ I may have talked (typed) myself into the eventual solution. ]
Are there any giants out there who have come before me, with whom I
may stand upon your shoulders?
