Buzzword Bingo: Did you know that Solr provides artificial intelligence?
Really? Yes, Solr is more than a fulltext search server and I'll introduce some of its advanced features to you. And I'll share some ideas with you about how you can use them in Drupal to build some cool stuff.
This session is neither about running or scaling a Solr server, nor about setting up Search API for Drupal.
It's about how you can access your data differently to get more value out of it.
I'll cover and basically explain some advanced Solr features like
- JSON facet API
- streaming expressions
- graph queries
Using Search API Solr Search it is easy to index your entities without coding. But once done we'll use some of these advanced features to implement some cool stuff.
So this session's goal is to enable you to implement features in a more efficient and quicker way than you can do by just using Drupal, PHP and a database.
To do so we'll use the Search API Solr Search 8.x-2.x module and the solarium 4.x library. (BTW I'm maintaining both.)
