Subject: ANNOUNCEMENT: Traject MARC->Solr indexer beta release
Jonathan Rochkind (Johns Hopkins), along with Bill Dueber (University of Michigan), is happy to announce a first beta release of "traject," a framework for indexing MARC data to Solr.
traject, in the vein of solrmarc, allows you to define your indexing rules using simple macro and translation files. However, traject runs under JRuby and is "ruby all the way down," so you can easily provide additional logic by simply requring ruby files.
traject is currently in a beta release, but is already being used in production to generated the HathiTrust Catalog (http://www.hathitrust.org/). traject was developed under a test-first mentality and has undergone both continuous integration and an extensive benchmarking/profiling period to keep it fast.
You can view the code on github, and easily install it as a (jruby) gem using "gem install traject".
