Modern search seems like magic—you type a few words and the search engine appears to know what you want. With the Elasticsearch real-time search and analytics engine, you can give your users this magical experience without having to do complex low-level programming or understand advanced data science algorithms. You just install it, tweak it, and get on with your work.
Elasticsearch in Action teaches you how to write applications that deliver professional quality search. As you read, you'll learn to add basic search features to any application, enhance search results with predictive analysis and relevancy ranking, and use saved data from prior searches to give users a custom experience. This practical book focuses on Elasticsearch's REST API via HTTP. Code snippets are written mostly in bash using cURL, so they're easily translatable to other languages.
