Jeff Geerling's Blog: Set up a hierarchical taxonomy term Facet using Facet API with Search API Solr

div class=field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hiddendiv class=field-itemsdiv class=field-item even property=content:encodedpI wanted to document this here just because it took me a little while to get all the bits working just right so I could have a hierarchical taxonomy display inside a Facet API search facet, rather than a flat display of only the taxonomy terms directly related to the nodes in the current search./p pBasically, I had a search facet on a search page that allowed users to filter search results by a taxonomy term, and I wanted it to show the taxonomy's hierarchy:/p p style=text-align: center;img src=http://www.jeffgeerling.com/sites/jeffgeerling.com/files/images/flat-to-hierarchical-taxonomy-facet-drupal.png alt=Flat taxonomy to hierarchical taxonomy display using Search API Solr and Facet API in Drupal 7 //p pTo do this, you need to do two main things:/p olliMake sure your taxonomy field is being indexed with taxonomy hierarchy data intact./li liSet up the Facet API facet for this taxonomy term so it will display the full hierarchy./li /olpLet's first start by making sure the taxonomy information is being indexed (refer to the image below):/p/div/div/div

He will be focused on front-end and theming./p pScott has been working with Drupal for nearly 5 years, and has a strong passion around improving the theming experience of Drupal. Scott was a major force in the push for Twig and clean markup in Drupal 8 core, sharing both his technical expertise and his enthusiastic community-building to make Drupal 8's theme layer awesome. He helped lead the a href=https://www.drupal.org/node/2289511Consensus Banana/a initiative that solved a long-standing concern with how core provides classes and markup, and then helped add the a href=https://www.drupal.org/node/2580687Stable base theme/a so that Drupal core could provide backwards compatibility for themes in minor releases./p pScott has organized sprints and discussions at many DrupalCons, including the groundbreaking templating and performance testing sprint at DrupalCon Portland that allowed Twig to become Drupal's primary theme engine. He and others also organized a a href=https://assoc.drupal.org/d8accelerateDrupal 8 Accelerate/a sprint on security criticals related to the theme system that were blocking Drupal 8's release, engaging novice contributors to fix the issues. Finally, Scott was previously a lead for the a href=https://groups.drupal.org/mentoringDrupal Core Contribution Mentoring program/a, mentoring dozens of other contributors on IRC, at sprints, etc. He is skilled at evaluating a problem, framing how it can be solved, and helping people solve it. In short: Scott has not only the strong technical abilities, but also the patient and supportive personality to make him an amazing fit for a core committer./p pScott's appointment as a core committer was enthusiastically endorsed from the rest of the Drupal 8 committers. Please join me in helping him feel welcome! And please also give thanks to his employer, a href=https://www.drupal.org/digital-echidnaDigital Echidna/a, who have agreed to partially sponsor his community time!/p

pI selected a href=http://buytaert.net/david-rothsteinDavid Rothstein/a as my co-maintainer for Drupal 7 back in May of 2012. Since then, David has done a tremendous job shepherding the Drupal 7 release, paying very careful attention to the ramifications of any given patch and allowing ample time for real world testing before incorporating changes into the code base, ensuring that the code powering 2% of the Internet stays stable and performant./p pHowever, after nearly 4 years of excellent stewardship on his own, David would like to also focus on other endeavors, including Drupal 8. Now the time has come to select an additional co-maintainer for Drupal 7. While David himself has recommended some excellent candidates, I'd also like to open the call out more broadly, to see if there are others who have an inclination and interest./p pThe a href=https://www.drupal.org/core/maintainers/Drupal core maintainer handbook/a contains comprehensive documentation on everything that a release manager does. In particular, the ideal candidate has the following traits:/p ulliAmple experience building real world sites/platforms on Drupal 7, particularly high-performant sites, sites with millions of records, or other edge cases./li liAmple experience performing detailed and thorough technical reviews of patches, being particularly mindful of their effects on existing sites./li liAbility to communicate calmly and respectfully when critiquing code./li liSolid knowledge of Git and the Drupal.org release process./li liIdeally, sponsored time to work through your employer to maintain Drupal 7, particularly around the first and third Wednesdays of the month, which are the a href=https://www.drupal.org/documentation/version-info#when Drupal core release windows/a./li /ulpPlease either respond here or use my a href=http://buytaert.net/contactcontact form/a if you'd like to be considered as a potential Drupal 7 co-maintainer. emThank you!/em/p

And with 60k installs, we’ve set a record for ecommerce on Drupal in general./li /ul/li liAnd what do you think have been its biggest weaknesses? ulliNot prioritizing UX from the start. Took us a year after the 1.0 release to create Inline Entity Form and recreate the admin screens as a part of the Kickstart. At that point many people already had the impression that Commerce was hard to use./li liNot providing enough direction to developers. Flexibility is important, as is having unopinionated code. But developers also need to have a clear and obvious path forward. Having an opinionated layer on top, with sane defaults, can save a lot of development time and prevent frustration. /li liNot prioritizing certain features, leaving them to contrib instead. Modules that make up the checkout ux (checkout progress, checkout redirect, addressbook), discounts. Of course, all generals are smart after the battle./li /ul/li liHow has that influenced the development of Commerce 2.x? ulliWith Commerce 2.x we once again started from scratch, evaluating all feedback received in the 1.x cycle. We decided to address all three of these major points. /li liBetter UX means paying more attention to the product and order admin experience, as well as providing better checkout out of the box./li liBetter APIs means doing more work for the developer, especially around pricing and taxes./li liAnd finally, we’re growing the core functionality. We’re expecting a dozen contrib modules to be no longer needed, as we address edge cases and add functionality./li /ul/li liWhat are some of the biggest new features of Commerce 2.x? ulliMulti-store will allow people to bill customers from different branches (US and FR offices, for example), or create marketplaces like Etsy./li liImproved support for international markets means better address forms, better currency management, and significantly better tax support, the kind that will reduce the need for people to use cloud-based tax solutions, at least in Europe./li liSupport for multiple order types, each with its own checkout and workflows will allow developers to create tailored experiences for different kinds of products, such as events, ebooks, t-shirts./li liAn integrated discounts UI means more power to the store admin. /li liAnd this is just the beginning. Under the hood there are many small features and improvements, over both 1.x and Kickstart./li /ul/li liWhat has Commerce done to integrate better with the PHP and Drupal communities? ulliWe’ve created several independent ecommerce libraries, attacking currency formatting, address management and taxes. These libraries are now being adopted by the wider PHP community, bringing us additional contributors./li liOn the Drupal side we’ve joined forces with the Profile2 team, creating the D8 Profile module that we’ll use for customer profiles. We’re also depending on Inline Entity Form, which is now shared with the Media team. We’re also moving some of our generic entity code into a new Entity API module, maintained together with Daniel Wehner and other community members./li liFinally, we have been champions of Composer, the replacement for Drush Make, and required for any module that depends on external libraries./li /ul/li /ulh2The Future of Commerce 2.x/h2 ulliCommerce 2.x is now in alpha2. What’s included? What’s next? ulliAlpha2 includes stores and products, as well as initial order and cart implementations./li liIt also has functional currency management and formatting, address and profile management./li liAlpha3, to be released in the next two weeks, is focusing on completing the order and cart implementations, and adding the initial checkout implementation./li liPost-alpha3 our focus will be on discounts, taxes, and finally, payments./li liThe best way to learn more about this is to read the drupalcommerce.org blog, where I post “Commerce 2.x stories” detailing work done so far. We have several new posts planned for february./li /ul/li liWhen can we expect Commerce 2.x to be production ready? ulliOur current goal is to release a production ready beta by end of march. We should also have Search API and Rules by then. Leading up to DrupalCon New Orleans we’ll be helping the community implement shipping and licensing and port payment modules.

Getting Drupal, Commerce, and all dependencies is a single Composer command, as is keeping it all up to date./li liPeople unwilling to run Composer on their servers can run it locally and commit the result./li liI’m also hoping we’ll be able to offer distribution-like tarballs on either drupal.org or drupalcommerce.org as we get closer to a release candidate./li /ul/li /ulh2Questions from Twitter/h2 ullihowdytom ‏a href=https://twitter.com/howdytom@howdytom/abr / Commerce Kickstart provides a great toolset with basic configuration. Is there a plan to do a Commerce Kickstart for Drupal 8? If not, will Commerce provide more out of the box solutions for a full featured shop? ulliCommerce Kickstart had several parts./li liThe first one was about providing better admin and checkout UX, as well as discounts. That’s now handled by Commerce out of the box./li liThe second was about providing a demo store with a developed set of frontend pages. That’s going to stay in contrib and will greatly benefit from the flexibility introduced by Drupal 8 and CMI./li liIt’s too early to plan a distribution yet. Drupal 8 has almost no contrib, and drupal.org doesn’t support using Composer to build distributions yet. /li liHowever, we are using Composer to provide single-command site templates, the kind that gives you Drupal core, Commerce and other modules. This will allow us to provide good starting points for different use cases, similar in nature to Commerce Kickstart 1.x. /li liOnce 2017 comes around, we’ll investigate next steps./li /ul/li liJimmy Henderickx ‏a href=https://twitter.com/StryKaizer@StryKaizer/abr / In commerce d8, will it be possible to alter a product name dynamicly (either by hook or other solution)?/li liCzövek András ‏a href=https://twitter.com/czovekandras@czovekandras/abr / Any plans making iframe payment methods 1st class citizens?
