Is it easy to make this extension work with my custom theme?

I am mainly concerned with knowing if this extension can truly integrate with my setup. Do you offer a trial? If not, is there some way I can send my products so you can set up a sample search for me? I find the extension to be a bit pricy for just testing it and later finding it didn't work with my store.

Hi Solr team,
I have used your extension on my site 4 days ago.
but I noticed your extension was using "count" of the attributes for the sort.

I want to use default "position" sort on your extension.

Can you help the feature?
