The History of IntegerNet_Solr
When one of our clients asked for a Solr integration, we combed through all available integrations at that time. None of them met our requirements regarding features and code quality. So we decided to build our own Solr integration for Magento.
We have plenty of experience with Magento, but at that time we felt like we could use some more knowledge of Solr in order to build something sound. The first step therefore was a Solr training.
Afterwards, we set off to build the most professional Solr extension for Magento. With a thorough approach to documentation and high quality code we have built an integration that is easy to install, maintain and extend.
This module has also inspired us to plenty of blog posts and talks. For example, when Fabian took up the challenge to reform the existing Magento 1 module and turn it into an extension that follows the framework agnostic approach, preparing it for Magento 2, he wrote a whole series of blog posts about it and presented the framework agnostic approach at different Magento centric events, such as the Developers Paradise.
What’s next for IntegerNet_Solr?
We continue to improve the Solr extension in collaboration with our clients. Some of their feature requests turn up in our extension’s roadmap, some feature requests are turned into separate modules individually made for one client.
If you like what you see of IntegerNet_Solr up to now but your project requires more of the search integration, let us talk about it and see if we can find a way to accomplish your goal. We are always interested to hear about your project’s requirements and ideas. Drop us a line!
