This is to announce the beta release of cql-ruby, a ruby gem that
implements a CQL parser. It is based on a translation of Mike Taylor's
CQL-Java parser minus the PQF stuff. In its stead I have implemented
the barest bones SOLR serialization of the CQL tree, which is what I
needed. The project site is http://cql-ruby.rubyforge.org/ I am not
sure who needs this other than I but hopefully it will save someone some
time somewhere down the road.
I still fantasize about producing an acts_as_sru plugin, that would
allow a developer with a website using solr for the indexing to add sru
support with one line of code. Not vary hard in general, though a
little problematic in my case (www.dlfaquifer.org) where we use only
pieces of the acts_as_solr.
