Subject Re: Deliver static html content via solr
Date Fri, 05 Jan 2018 09:19:21 GMT
Using Velocity, you can have some results-driven HTML served by Solr and 
all your JS, CSS etc 'assets' served by Apache from /var/www/html. 
Warning: the Velocity learning curve is steep and you still need a 
separate front-end web app for security because Velocity is a templating 
output filter. Eric, please correct me!

cheers -- Rick
