Elephant

Elephant is an S3-backed key-value store with querying powered by Elastic Search. Your data is persisted on S3 as simple JSON documents, but you can instantly query it over HTTP.

Suddenly, your data becomes as durable as S3, as portable as JSON, and as queryable as HTTP. Enjoy!

Usage

>>> requests.post('http://elephant-server/', data={'title': 'Test Page', 'draft': True})
<Response [200]>

>>> requests.get('http://elephant-server/', params={'q': 'draft:True'}).json()
{u'records': [{u'epoch': 1364286524987, u'title': u'Test Page', u'uuid': u'ce251e8a-ab6b-4f7e-bdc4-eecf0e71ac16'}}

Configuration

Elephant expects the following environment variables to be set:

# AWS Credentials
BYODEMO_BUCKET_NAME = xxxxxx
BYODEMO_AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID = xxxxxx
BYODEMO_AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY = xxxxxx

# Elastic Search Server
FOUNDELASTICSEARCH_URL = xxxxxx
ES_PASSWORD = xxxxxx

If you need a production Elastic Search instance, checkout searchly and heroku-elasticsearch.

Management

Reseeding ElasticSearch is super simple:

$ python elephant.py seed
