Docker Image for LireSolr

Docker MobyWe all know that setting up a server application is a huge pain in the ass, but there’s hope: Docker is an open source project for packaging those things and making them runnable within containers. Only thing one needs to do is to create an image, which then can be used to create a container.

LireSolr now provides such a Docker image on Docker Hub. Basically you can install Docker, then use the docker command in the shell (Linux) or the PowerShell (MS Windows) to automatically download and run a container based on the image with a single command:

$> docker run -p 8983:8983 dermotte/liresolr:latest

What you need to do then is to index some images and take a look at the sample application. A detailed step-by-step howto is provided in the documentation.

LireSolr updated to Solr 6.3.0

By Source, Fair use, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?curid=10443585Apache Solr is a search server application widely in use around the world and LireSolr is the integration project of Lire into this search server. As a last work item of the year, we have updated LireSolr to work with Solr 6.3.0. This also involves the move to Lucene 6.3.0 for LIRE and — for both — Java 8 as minimum SDK version. LireSolr also found a new home on Github: https://github.com/dermotte/liresolr.

There’s detailed documentation on how to set up Solr, how to add a core, how to configure it for the use with LireSolr and there are even indexing tools to get your photos inside Solr. Give it a try at Github!
