This tutorial covers a topic in Drupal 7 which may or may not be the version you're using. We're keeping this tutorial online as a courtesy to users of Drupal 7, but we consider it archived.
When it comes to integrating Apache Solr with Drupal there are currently two different modules that can be used, Search API, and the Apache Solr module. While both are valid options, for this series we've chosen to focus on the Search API module because amongst other things it's generally more flexible, and based on conversations with people in the community who are working on Solr integration it is currently seeing more focused development efforts and will likely superseded the Apache Solr module sometime in the future.
This tutorial provides some background information on the Search API module and why we've chosen to use it. We'll look at how the Search API module bridges the gap between Solr and Drupal, and explain some of the commonly used terms we'll encounter in the module's UI and codebase.
By the end of this lesson you should be able to explain the Search API module's terminology, requirements, and position in the Drupal ecosphere, as well as be able to make a good case for why someone should choose the Search API module as a starting point for creating better search tools in Drupal.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
