Subject Non-prefix, hierarchical autocomplete? Would SOLR-1316 work? Solritas?
Date Sat, 19 Jun 2010 07:28:15 GMT

I've seen some posts on using SOLR-1316 or Solritas for autocomplete. Wondered what is the
best solution for my use case:

1) I would like to have an "hierarchical" autocomplete. For example, I have a "Country" dropdown
list and a "City" textbox. A user would select a country from the dropdown list, and then
type out the City in the textbox. Based on which country he selected, I want to limit the
autocomplete suggestions to cities that are relevant for the selected country.

This hierarchy could be multi-level. For example, there may be a "Neighborhood" textbox. The
autocomplete suggestions for "Neighborhood" would be limited to neighborhoods that are relevant
for the city entered by the user in the "City" textbox.

2) I want to have autocomplete suggestions that includes non-prefix matches. For example,
if the user type "auto", the autocomplete suggestions should include terms such as "automata"
and "build automation".

3) I'm doing autocomplete for tags. I would like to allow multi-word tags and use comma (",")
as a separator for tags. So when the use hits the space bar, he is still typing out the same
tag, but when he hits the comma key, he's starting a new tag.

Would SOLR-1316 or Solritas work for the above requirements? If they do how do I set it up?
I can't really find much documentation on SOLR-1316 or Solritas in this area.
