Transport classes

List of transport classes that can be used, simply import your choice and pass it to the constructor of :class:`~elasticsearch.Elasticsearch` as connection_class. Note that the :class:`~elasticsearch.connection.RequestsHttpConnection` requires requests to be installed.

For example to use the requests-based connection just import it and use it:

from elasticsearch import Elasticsearch, RequestsHttpConnection
es = Elasticsearch(connection_class=RequestsHttpConnection)

The default connection class is based on urllib3 which is more performant and lightweight than the optional requests-based class. Only use RequestsHttpConnection if you have need of any of requests advanced features like custom auth plugins etc.
