From time to time I come across a problem that I just have to solve. I will begin posting about some of those solutions here.
I do quite a bit of work with SOLR (Cloud). There are a few actions that happen over and over. I created these scripts to handle the repetitiveness. I’ve added those scripts to github here: https://github.com/likethecolor/solr-scripts
Java Client for AlchemyAPI
I recently had to do some text processing using the resources provided by AlchemyAPI I found that the Java SDK was too simple and did not provide all that could have been provided. I am grateful that the people at AlchemyAPI provided the RESTful service but I wanted the Java interface to do more so I wrote my own Java interface to their service and posted it to GitHub: https://github.com/likethecolor/Alchemy-API

I’ve been working on this indexer for a couple of years now and I think it’s ready to be out in the wild: https://github.com/likethecolor/solr-indexer. This is a command line indexer that will handle both CSV and JSON data files.
