ElasticSearch ruby client

ElasticSearch ruby client. Credit goes to my coworkers at GitHub, I just turned it into a gem.


Add to Gemfile

gem 'elasticsearch-client', :require => 'elasticsearch'

Create connection:

index = 'twitter'
url = 'http://localhost:9200'
es =, url)

Index a document:

type = 'tweet'
doc = {:id => 'abcd', :foo => 'bar'}
es.add(type, doc[:id], doc)

Get a document:

id = '1234'
es.mget(type, [id])

Get documents:

id2 = 'abcd'
es.mget(type, [id, id2])


query = {
  :query => {
    :bool => {
      :must => {
        :query_string => {
          :default_field => '_all',
          :query => 'foobar!',
}, query)

Remove record:

es.remove(type, id)

Remove by query:

es.remove_by_query(type, :term => {:foo => 'bar'})

Remove all of type:


Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so we don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine, but bump version in a commit by itself so we can ignore when we pull)
  • Send us a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
