Subject Re: Time estimate Solr Installation
Date Sun, 07 Apr 2013 21:42:57 GMT
Your description here would not be enough to give a detailed offer. If you pointed us to your
freelancer job description, perhaps it would be easier to compare.

But from your description, it would definitely be possible to get solr with a tuned schema
and db import up during the first day, and then some basic PHP integration during the second
day - in development env. But if your project contains anything more fancy such as complex
search GUIs, relevancy tuning, proper production environment setup with service, logging,
monitoring, documentation and other stuff you need, then there would definitely be more than
2 days.
