Introduction

Elasto is a simple library to query Elasticsearch.

Topics

Installation

npm install elasto

Support

If you want to use this package with Elasticsearch 0.90, you should use 1.1.2. The versions >=2.X.X will only support Elasticsearch 1.X.X.

Getting started

More infos about the config options here.

var Elasto = require('elasto');
Elasto.config({
    host: 'localhost:9200',
});

Elasto provides a simple query interface for the common usecases. You can have access to the elasticsearch.js client via Elasto.client. The client gets instantiated when you set the config with a host.

Example

All-in-one example. Find more options on API.

Elasto.query({
      index: 'development',
      type: 'tweets'
})
.near({ // documents near this location
    lat: 51.5,
    lon: -0.1467912,
    radius: 3
})
.where('name', 'London') // where name matches London
.size(2) // return only 2 documents
.from(1) // skip 1 document (searching after 1 document)
.fields('name', 'address') // return only name and address fields
.exec()
.then(function (res) { // execute
   // done!
});

API

Basic query

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.exec();

Fields matching

  • .where

.where accepts two types of arguments. Either an object with the fields to match.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.where({ username: '@jack'})
.exec();

Or key value pair of arguments

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.where('username', '@jack')
.exec();

Term

  • .term

Search a term.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.term('#love')
.exec();

Size

  • .size
  • .limit

Limit the size of the query.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.limit(3)
.exec();

Sort

  • .sort
  • .limit

Sorts the query by a field the size of the query.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.sort('description', 'asc')
.exec();

You can also sort by distance. It will sort based on the location field in the document.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.sort('distance', {
    lat: 51.5,
    lon: -0.1467912,
})
.exec();

Distance

  • .near

Finds documents in an area. The radius is in miles.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.near({
    lat: 51.5,
    lon: -0.1467912,
    radius: 2
})
.exec();

From

  • .from
  • .offset

Skips documents in the query.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.from(3)
.exec();

Range

  • .range

Find documents where the field matches a range.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.range('characters', [120, 150])
.exec();

You can also query the distance range. It will sort based on the location field in the document. All the distances are in miles.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.range('distance', {
    lat: 51.5,
    lon: -0.1467912,
    from: 2,
    to: 3
})
.exec();

Fields

  • .fields

Only return the specific fields.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.fields(['name', 'id'])
.exec();

Exclude

  • .exclude
  • .not

Excludes documents where the query gets matched (opposite of .where).

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.not('username', '@hater666')
.exec();

Count

Count documents based on a query

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.count();

Raw ElasticSearch Query

Returns the raw ElasticSearch computed by Elasto. You can directly use that object with the ElasticSearch node library (that's how Elasto is designed). Takes search or count as argument. If empty, the raw query will be search.

Elasto.query({
    index: 'development',
    type: 'tweets'
})
.raw(); 
// Returns Object
// -> { index: 'development',
//  type: 'tweets',
//  body: { query: { filtered: [Object] } } }
