matthoffman/solr-clojure-sample · GitHub
This project uses flux, Matt Mitchell's Solr client for Clojure. There are a few Solr clients in the Clojure world -- Icarus, Clojure-Solr, and Solrclj -- but Flux is the most recent and the only one that supports Solr 4.x out of the box (and 5.x, on a branch).

It's designed as a quick way to get started, especially if you use IntelliJ IDEA and the Cursive Clojure plugin.
