I do not. But I assume that something that was designed to power a website might not be perfectly suited for writing a "client" application out of it. Perhaps it's aimed at experienced professional developers so it's not very straightforward to use, perhaps it requires the installation of a bunch of other server software that would make any self-contained final app very large and it may not be possible to integrate everything into a single executable, perhaps it would take a fair amount of extra work to integrate it with a GUI because it's not really designed for that. I would be happy to be informed that these assumptions are incorrect.

    So many assumptions. You use the term "Perhaps" a lot here, perhaps you should do some research on what Solr actually is. Your assumption that it's something designed to power a website is wrong. You could easily answer these questions you have about this product by reading the documentation on their website.

[Corion]: Discipulus: If you want to rewrite the SVG, then yes, something like XML::Twig should be enough. I would try to not modify the SVG but only modify the display, but so far I haven't convinced IE to change the style...
Corion gives up
[Discipulus]: ah! so you mean if i need a static image i can use Twig, if on the fly better css selector and mody attrs (jquery?), rigth?
[LanX]: not sure what you guys are taking about, but a DOM manipulation in JS shouldn't be difficult
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, that's what I would try (but so far, I can't even change the colors manually in the SVG, which is why I gave up ;) )
Discipulus bad sign..
[Discipulus]: italian doc says to modify somehow the initial SVG before using it with D3.js
[Discipulus]: LanX the fact is that my js ability is even poorer than my Perl one..
[LanX]: oh its negative? ;P
