This is a past event. Please join us for Web Summer Camp this year.

Search service powered by Solr


By August the Solr powered search engine for the new stack will finally be available to play with. This is one of the most awaited features, as the equivalent legacy extension eZ Find was used a lot. In this workshop, we will show the few examples in action to give the best possible insight into the new engine and to prepare the participants to start using it in their eZ Platform projects.

Setting up developer environment 

You can follow the workshop better with the virtual appliance configuration used at the event. Check out the main repo and follow the instructions. In a nutshell, you should be able to create the Vagrant box with:

$ git clone
$ cd summercamp-2015
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update
$ vagrant up --no-provision

Then add all domains in the hosts as explained in the README.

To prepare this workshop, you should then:

$ vagrant ssh
(vagrant)$ cd /var/www/summercamp/
(vagrant)$ ./ ezsolr

You should have the workshop accessible in your browser at http://ezsolr.phpsc/. If you have problems, check the FAQ. If you still have problems, you can fall back to using only workshop repo listed here.
