Cloudsearch Plugin interfaces with the Amazon Cloudsearch service to provide search capabilities for any FarCry application. Cloudsearch is an API based implementation of the SOLR search engine, and the plugin works similarly to the FarCry Solr Pro Plugin.
Cloudsearch is an AWS specific API for a commercial SOLR Pro service. We follow previous search engine plugin (Verity, Solr and Solr Pro) approaches to configuration and indexing. Standard search and results outputs are straightforward.
Great for those working in AWS (obviously!) but note there is no simple high availability solution for file based searches for PDF, DOC, etc.
While complex faceted searches are certainly possible, the integration needs a little bit of simplification – we welcome pull requests in this area.
