Searchkick vs Solr: What are the differences?
Searchkick: Intelligent search made easy. Searchkick learns what your users are looking for. As more people search, it gets smarter and the results get better. It’s friendly for developers - and magical for your users; Solr: An open source enterprise search server based on Lucene search library, with XML/HTTP and JSON APIs, hit highlighting, faceted search, caching, replication etc. Solr is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from the Apache Lucene project. Its major features include powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, near real-time indexing, dynamic clustering, database integration, rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling, and geospatial search. Solr is highly reliable, scalable and fault tolerant, providing distributed indexing, replication and load-balanced querying, automated failover and recovery, centralized configuration and more. Solr powers the search and navigation features of many of the world's largest internet sites.
Searchkick and Solr can be primarily classified as "Search Engines" tools.
Some of the features offered by Searchkick are:
- stemming - tomatoes matches tomato
- special characters - jalapeno matches jalapeño
- extra whitespace - dishwasher matches dish washer
On the other hand, Solr provides the following key features:
- Advanced Full-Text Search Capabilities

"Slack provides two strategies for searching: Recent and Relevant. Recent search finds the messages that match all terms and presents them in reverse chronological order. If a user is trying to recall something that just happened, Recent is a useful presentation of the results.
Relevant search relaxes the age constraint and takes into account the Lucene score of the document — how well it matches the query terms (Solr powers search at Slack). Used about 17% of the time, Relevant search performed slightly worse than Recent according to the search quality metrics we measured: the number of clicks per search and the click-through rate of the search results in the top several positions. We recognized that Relevant search could benefit from using the user’s interaction history with channels and other users — their ‘work graph’."
elastic search 와 함께 유명한 검색 엔진 오픈 소스 중 하나 이다. 처음 설정할 것이 많은데, 어플리케이션의 이해가 없다면 잦은 수정이 필요하다. Solr Client 로 제어 할 수 없고 Server 에서 설정해 줘야하는 것들이 있어 서버 설정하는 부분이 중요하다. 서버 설정만 잘 되있다면, Client 쪽 소스는 별게 없다.

Full text search is provided by a SOLR cluster. This is done on Master/Slave replication with Varnish as a cache.
