== About ==
This plugin adds full text search capabilities and many other nifty
features from Apache's Solr to any Rails model

== Installation ==
On your Rails' root directory, just type
  script/plugin install

== Very Basic Usage ==
Just include the line below to any of your ActiveRecord models:

Or if you want, you can specify only the fields that should be
  acts_as_solr :fields => [:name, :author]

Then to find instances of your model, just do:
  Model.find_by_solr(query) or Model.find_id_by_solr(query)

Or if you want to specify the starting row and the number of rows per
  Model.find_by_solr(query, :start => 0, :rows => 10)

Get it while it's hot =>
