solr search orm like query builder

Project description


Scorched is a sunburnt offspring and like all offspring it tries to make things better or at least different.

Git Repository and issue tracker:



Following some major differences:

  • No validation of queries in client code (make code much more lightweight)
  • Send and receive as json. (Faster 20k docs from 6.5s to 1.3s)
  • API is more lightweight e.g. add consumes now only dicts.
  • Wildcard search strings need to be explicitly set.
  • Python 3
  • Drops support for Solr < 4.3.0

Local testing

First checkout the sources:

Now create a virtual-env and install some dependencies:

cd scorched
virtualenv ./
bin/pip install -e .
bin/pip install -e .[test]

Start the Solr server to test against:

# DEBUG=true|false: verbose output of Solr server on|off
# SOLR_VERSION=x.y.z (the version to test against)
# the Solr startup script reports the pid of the Solr process
SOLR_VERSION=4.10.2 SOLR_PORT=44177 DEBUG=true SOLR_CONFS="scorched/tests/solrconfig.xml" ./

# stop Solr
kill -9 $pid

Running the tests:

SOLR_URL=http://localhost:44177/solr/core0 ./bin/nosetests -s scorched
