Coming across to
ElasticSearch when preparing for the programming chanllege held by WorksApplications in Tokyo Event, and falling love with her after then. Well, with no much new techonoligies involved,
ElasticSearch is definitely a beautiful piece of software and a successful product. Claimed that with the core search engine powered by
RESTful interface and born as a distributed and scheme-free search oriented product,
ElasticSearch has boosted the huge
business of Github with billions of lines and Stackoverflow with billions of Q&A.
After digging some 101 tutorials around, I found it easy to set up
ES(abbreviated for ElasticSearch and will use afterwards) and begin to play in 10 minutes. However, to understand what is going on underhood and what is the most tricy and interesting part, also to those who try to develop plugins to enpower
ES, I will share something which would be useful for newbies. There are already tons of tutorials online, to same your time, please see
elasticsearch-getting-started hosted on my github for a good cheat sheet.
