Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-4157) Add more conventional search functionality to the Admin UI
Date Sun, 16 Dec 2012 16:42:12 GMT


Erick Erickson commented on SOLR-4157:

OK, I finally got off the road and had a chance to look. Comments:

1> Looks like a really good idea.

2> It'd be really cool to have JSON and XML be formatted in the pane by default, they're
ugly as it stands. But only if it's really, really easy.

3> Not quite sure what you mean by using Velocity, this appears to display the fields you
ask for as it stands.

4> Long lists overrun the pane in Chrome, assuming it's something you just haven't gotten
to yet.

5> I agree that the list of options are kind of intimidating, but I'm not all that concerned
with simplifying it. In fact I kind of like the fact that the options are there inviting people
to play with them. Let's send them to the browse handler for a more real-life "user experience",
I think leaving this for mostly expert/debugging is fine.

6> What do you think should be done with debug and facet and highlight info? I'm thinking
just a continuation of the pane, really just prettifying the output.

You code, I'll commit <G>...

> The admin UI has a 'query' pane which allows searching the index. However, this is currently
an 'expert' level feature, as you must specify exact request parameters and interpret output
> I suggest we add simple versions of each. A simple query pane would give a more conventional
search interface for running queries. A simple results pane would give HTML formatted results
with features to nicely display hightlighting, explains, etc.
> To give an idea of what this might look like, I've attached a rudimentary patch that
gives an HTML option for wt which formats the query results as (somewhat minimal) HTML.
> The challenge will be in producing a search interface that is schema agnostic, as to
be really useful, it should work with any index, and not just with the fields in the default
schema (perhaps Erik Hatcher is right, this should be backed by the velocityResponseWriter).
> Thoughts welcome.
