Elasticsearch

The elasticsearch library provides a Ruby client and API for Elasticsearch.

Features overview:

  • Pluggable logging and tracing
  • Pluggable connection selection strategies (round-robin, random, custom)
  • Pluggable transport implementation, customizable and extendable
  • Pluggable serializer implementation
  • Request retries and dead connections handling
  • Node reloading (based on cluster state) on errors or on demand
  • Consistent API support for the whole Elasticsearch API
  • Extensive documentation and examples
  • Emphasis on modularity and extendability of both the client and API libraries

(For integration with Ruby models and Rails applications, see the https://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-rails project.)

Compatibility

The Elasticsearch client for Ruby is compatible with Ruby 1.9 and higher.

The client's API is compatible with Elasticsearch's API versions from 0.90 till current, just use a release matching major version of Elasticsearch.

Ruby Elasticsearch
0.90 0.90
1.x 1.x
2.x 2.x
5.x 5.x
6.x 6.x
master master

Installation

Install the package from Rubygems:

gem install elasticsearch

To use an unreleased version, either add it to your Gemfile for Bundler:

gem 'elasticsearch', git: 'git://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-ruby.git'

or install it from a source code checkout:

git clone https://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-ruby.git
cd elasticsearch-ruby/elasticsearch
bundle install
rake install

Usage

This library is a wrapper for two separate libraries:

Install the elasticsearch package and use the API directly:

require 'elasticsearch'

client = Elasticsearch::Client.new log: true

client.cluster.health

client.transport.reload_connections!

client.search q: 'test'

# etc.
