Creating a collection and adding a document:

from functools import partial
from solnado   import SolrClient
from tornado   import ioloop, gen

c = SolrClient()

def create_core():
    p = partial(
    res = yield gen.Task(p)
    raise gen.Return(res)

def create_collection():
    p = partial(
    res = yield gen.Task(p)
    raise gen.Return(res)

def index_documents(docs):
    p = partial(
       **{'commitWithin': 0}
    res = yield gen.Task(p)
    raise gen.Return(res)

def main_coro():
    yield create_core()
    yield create_collection()
    res = yield index_documents([
            'Title': 'A tale of two documents',
            'id': '456',
            'Title': 'It was the best of times',

    print res.body, res.code
