Hi community!

Just wanted to let you know about a new Blacklight plugin we have been working on BlacklightHeatmaps. BlacklightHeatmaps uses Solr’s new facet heatmap feature to provide heatmaps of your results from a search. For the full feature list checkout:

We plan on integrating this work with Spotlight sometime soon, as well as adding other enhancements. I just released the v0.0.1 version of the gem so there may be some rough edges. Contributions and feedback are most welcome.

For a quick demo of how it works, checkout
