Configuring autocomplete with Search API and Apache Solr.

There are two ways of using the Apache Solr search server with Drupal. Here I’ll be using Search API together with Search API Solr.

Autocomplete functionality is provided by the Search API Autocomplete module. This module is available for Drupal 7.x as well as 8.x. Instructions are pretty straightforward. Caveat: Usage with exposed filters seems to be giving unwanted effects (as the docs predict). In my case, autocomplete wouldn’t work at all with a separated, exposed filter block belonging to a search result view.
