A zc.buildout recipe to install a Solr server

Project description


This recipe installs a Solr server with buildout.

It’s kept as simple as possible and contrary to collective.recipe.solrinstance it does not generate any Solr configuration files. Instead the user can provide a directory containing custom configuration files. A default set of configuration files for usage with Plone is provided.

You can use it by adding a part like this:

parts = solr

recipe = ftw.recipe.solr
cores =

Supported options

The recipe supports the following options:


Name or IP address of the Solr server. Defaults to localhost.


Server port. Defaults to 8983.


List of cores that should be created.


Url for Solr distribution download.


MD5 checksum of Solr distribution.


Can be used to configure JVM options. Defaults to -Xms512m -Xmx512m -Xss256k


Path to a directory containing Solr configuration files.


If provided, the path given in conf is prepended with the path of the given egg.


If specified, this list limits what nodes can be requested in the shards request parameter. See Configuring the ShardHandlerFactory


Provide a configoverlay as documented in This will override the default config in solrconfig.xml
