Subject Re: Flare plugin (with Ruby Solr library and acts_as_solr plugin)

Flare is currently not what I'd consider production ready, but it all  
depends on your needs.  It is a simple plugin that ties Solr to RoR  
for faceted browsing, full-text search, and Ajax suggest.  It's what  
I'd call a hack / proof-of-concept.

There isn't any additional documentation about it.  But there isn't  
much code that comprises it either, so it's quite approachable,  
though a bit ugly in parts.  You'll find the plugin here:


A couple of directories up is an actual Rails application using that  

The Blacklight team has been working on a  more sophisticated version  
of Flare.  You can browse around their repository to track down what  
they've done:
