Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: 5.3, 6.0
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Admin UI
As of Solr 5.2.1, there's a new admin UI available that has been written almost entirely by Upayavira (thanks!) over the last several months. It's written in Angular JS with an eye towards enhancement/maintainability. The default UI is still the old version, but you can access the new version by going to http://<sever:port>/solr/index.html. There are a couple of fixes between 5.2.0 and 5.2.1, so please use either a fresh 5x checkout, trunk, or 5.2.1....
The expectation is that in Solr 5.3, the new code will become the default with the old UI deprecated and eventually removed.
So it would be a great help if volunteers could give the new UI a spin. It should look much the same as the current one at the start, but evolve into something much more interesting and more cloud-friendly. Of course all the new UI code will always be available on trunk/6.0 too, and the up-to-date code will always be on both the trunk and 5x branches.
Please provide feedback on the user's (or dev) lists about anything you find that doesn't work, or enhancements you'd like to see (or, even better, contribute). If you raise a JIRA, please link it to this one so I can keep track of what needs to be committed. If linking JIRAs is a mystery just add a comment to this JIRA referencing the new JIRA and we can take care of it.
Please do not attach patches to this JIRA, it'll be much easier to keep track of everything if the patches are attached to sub-JIRAs.
And a big thanks to Upayavira for this work!
