A sample Rails application can be found on GitHub https://github.com/searchly/searchly-rails-sample.
Ruby on Rails applications will need to add the following entry into their
gem 'elasticsearch-model' gem 'elasticsearch-rails'
Update application dependencies with bundler.
sh $ bundle install
Configure Rails Elasticsearch in
elasticsearch::model.client = elasticsearch::client.new host: env['searchbox_url']
First add required mixin to your model;
class document < activerecord::base include elasticsearch::model end
From Rails console, create
index for model
document.__elasticsearch__.create_index! force: true
Make your model searchable:
class document < activerecord::base include elasticsearch::model include elasticsearch::model::callbacks end
When you now save a record:
document.create name: "cost", text: "cost is claimed to be reduced and in a public cloud delivery model capital expenditure is converted."
The included callbacks automatically add the document to a
index, making the record searchable:
@documents = document.search('cost').records
Elasticsearch Ruby/Rails has very detailed documentation at official Elasticsearch page.
