Elasticsearch and Drupal

Session Speaker(s): 
Sunday, November 9 2014
Room: Warp Zone
Time: 2:30pm - 3:00pm

Elasticseach is an up-and-coming open source search engine with a fantastic JSON API, scalable cloud-based architecture, and lots of interesting features. Until recently, there has not been Elasticsearch integration available in Drupal contrib.

Palantir.net has used Elasticsearch in two projects over the past year and a half. Both of these involved custom Elasticsearch integration, but the second involved customization on top of the Drupal contrib toolchain.

This session will start with the standard Drupal use case, and then introduce the Elasticsearch API, libraries, and debugging tools, and cover basic search concepts.
