        port = 9200
      }
    },
    -- Optional parameters
    params = {
      pingTimeout = 2
    }

Standard call

local param1, param2 = client:<func>()

param1: Stores the data returned or nil on error

param2: Stores the HTTP status code on success or the error message on failure

Getting info of elasticsearch server

local data, err = client:info()

Index a document

Everything is represented as a lua table.

local data, err = client:index{
  index = "my_index",
  type = "my_type",
  id = "my_doc",
  body = {
    my_key = "my_param"
  }
}

Get a document

data, err = client:get{
  index = "my_index",
  type = "my_type",
  id = "my_doc"
}

Delete a document

data, err = client:delete{
  index = "my_index",
  type = "my_type",
  id = "my_doc"
}

Searching a document

You can search a document using either query string:

data, err = client:search{
  index = "my_index",
  type = "my_type",
  q = "my_key:my_param"
}

Or either a request body:

data, err = client:search{
  index = "my_index",
  type = "my_type",
  body = {
    query = {
      match = {
        my_key = "my_param"
      }
    }
  }
}

Update a document

data, err = client:update{
  index = "my_index",
  type = "my_type",
  id = "my_doc",
  body = {
    doc = {
      my_key = "new_param"
    }
  }
}
