An ElasticSearch extension for Akka

Scala versions: 2.10


An ElasticSearch extension for Akka. The extension registers a single instance of the elasticsearch client as node, that can be configured by an application.conf that points to a elasticsearch.yml file. Using docker containers the elasticsearch.yml can be loaded from the file system, url or classpath. The extension makes use of the work done by Stephen Samuel, many thanks to him and the committers of elastic4s - Elasticsearch Scala Client, thanks thanks thanks!!

akka {
    extensions = ["com.github.dnvriend.elasticsearch.extension.ElasticSearch"]

Configure the elasticsearch node

The extension can be configured by means of application.conf. You have to configure the path to the elasticsearch.yml file, that can be on an URL (like etc.d), the filesystem (docker container) or classpath.

elasticsearch {
  settings = "classpath://elasticsearch.yml"

Execute a query

To execute a query:

import com.sksamuel.elastic4s.ElasticDsl._
import org.elasticsearch.search.sort.SortOrder

val mySearchDef = search in "orders" -> "order" sort { by field "created" order SortOrder.DESC} limit 100

val response: Future[SearchResponse] = elasticSearch.doSearch(mySearchDef)

To index

To index:

import com.sksamuel.elastic4s.source.DocumentMap

case class Order(orderId: String, created: String) extends DocumentMap {
  def map = Map("orderId" -> orderId, "created" -> created)

val myIndexDefinition = index into "orders" -> "order" doc Order(UUID.randomUUID.toString, "2014-01-01")

val response: Future[IndexResponse] = elasticSearch.doIndex(myIndexDefinition)
