Deploy Solr on Raspberry Pi3 (RPI3) via Pantahub

Make your RPI3 device ready to deploy Solr by following 6 Steps

Step 1: Burn the RPI3 initial stable image into your sd card.

a) Download RPI3 image

Click to download

b) unxz the device image

Run $ unxz rpi3_initial_stable.img.xz

c) Burn image into sd card using Raspberry Pi Imager 1.2

Step 2: Boot your RPI3

a) Insert your sd card and supply the power

Step 3: Singup @pantahub here

Step 4: Download & Install a CLI tool “pvr”

Note: pvr is a CLI tool which can be used to interact with your device through pantahub platform. Note: Using pvr you can share your firmware and projects as simple as with a git tree: Note: Move the pvr binary to your bin folder after download.

Linux(AMD64): Download Linux(ARM32v6): Download Darwin(AMD64): Download

pvr clone; pvr commit; pvr post

To install from github source code:

$ go get
$ go build -o ~/bin/pvr

Note: You need “GOLANG” to be installed in your system for building pvr from github source code.

Step 5: Detect & Claim your device

a) Connect a LAN cable between your RPI3 & computer/Router.
b) Open your terminal & run $ pvr scan
c) Claim your device

$ pvr claim -c merely-regular-gorilla

d) Log into and check whether the newly claimed device appeared in the dashboard or not.

Step 6: Clone the device to your computer using the Clone URL of your device

$ pvr clone presently_learning_pelican

Now your device is ready to deploy your Solr search engine app

Deploy your Solr app to the device by following 4 Steps

Step 1: Add new app “solr” into the device

$ pvr app add solr --from=arm32v7/solr:5-slim

Step 2: Deploy the changes to the device

$ pvr add .
$ pvr commit
$ pvr post

Step 3: Access the Solr dashboard

Step 4: Try creating your 1st Solr Core

a) SSH into the app container “solr”

ssh -p 8222 solr@

b) Create a new core

$ cd /opt/solr/bin
$ ./solr create -c "core1"

c) Access the Solr core you just created

You are Done!
