Hi Joel - are you thinking of keeping the client but swapping out the backend? Maybe Solarium is a good thing to integrate to enhanced retrieval, but now there's a new kid on the block called Elastica, so maybe encapsulate both APIs that so it can be seamlessly swapped out should the time come. IOW I'm thinking enhanced retrieval could be configured for either SOLR or ES backends. Of course, what makes Enhanced Retrieval nice is that it already has a working client, integrated/tested already with SMW. I think for many SMW+ applications, the distributed architecture of the ES indexing/storage engine (the real difference between the two), matters quite little. Unfortunately the working client is not jq based, so you're right that the proitotype.js needs to be swapped out to make the extension work on MW 1.18+. Huzzahs to you for your work!
Thanks - john

Thanks for the tip David!  Will be sure to let the engineer who reverse-engineered Enhanced Retrieval take a look at it.  It does seem ElasticSearch is the way to go, especially now that WMF selected it.

One other search-related aspect of SMW+ we're looking into is how it did autocomplete in the search bar, where it also showed the Category/Class, along with the article/instance name.

I know Yaron is also considering revamping Semantic Drilldown, which is a form of faceted search.  Perhaps all these search-related efforts can be coordinated?

hi Joel,

For your consideration, ElasticSearch also supports geospatial features. It
will certainly make people's lives easier to support just one indexing system.
I ported a system from Solr to ElasticSearch in less than one day.
