Using multiple Solr cores with DDEV Friday 21, September 2018 mglaman

If you want to have multiple Solr indexes using Search API, you need to have a core for each index instance. For my local development stack, I use DDEV. The documentation has a basic example for setting up a Solr service, but I had quite the fun time figuring out how to ensure multiple cores.

Using JSON API to query your Search API indexes Saturday 28, October 2017 mglaman

It’s still a RESTful interface, but the specification just helps bring an open standard for how data should be represented and requests should be constructed. The JSON API module exposes collection routes, which allows retrieving multiple resources in a single request.
