Decarboni.se Knowledge Hub
Drupal, architecture and solr

The Decarboni.se knowledge hub is an evolution of the Global CCS Institute's Drupal-based knowledge platform we started building in 2010. After enjoying about four-year's solid growth, the old platform started to show its age and limitations.

After intensive prototyping and evaluation from late 2012 to early 2013, we decided to explore the possibility of building a knowledge hub that retained the key features of the old knowledge platform, had a better and stronger search function and more importantly allowed us to quickly build websites using a common code-base for other organisations and encourage them to share information more effectively.

The result was a very innovative Drupal architecture that seamlessly integrates with Apache Solr and offered significant performance gain over conventional Drupal setups.
