Elasticsearch data layer for eve rest framework

Project description

Eve-Elastic is elasticsearch data layer for eve REST framework.


  • fulltext search
  • filtering via elasticsearch filter dsl
  • facets support
  • elasticsearch mapping generator for schema


Eve-Elastic is GPLv3 licensed.


$ pip install Eve-Elastic


Set elastic as your eve data layer.

import eve
from eve_elastic import Elastic

app = eve.Eve(data=Elastic)


There are 2 options for Eve-Elastic taken from app.config:

  • ELASTICSEARCH_URL (default: 'http://localhost:9200/')
  • ELASTICSEARCH_INDEX - (default: 'eve')

Query params

Eve-Elastic supports eve like queries via where param which work as term filter.

On top of this, there is a predefined query_string query which does fulltext search.

$ curl http://localhost:5000/items?q=foo&df=name
  • q - query (default: *)
  • df - default field (default: _all)


For more sophisticated filtering, you can use filter query param which will be used as filter for the query, using elastic filter dsl.


To add a facets support for specific resource, add facets into its datasource:

    'contacts': {
            'facets': {
                'urgency': {'terms': {'field': 'urgency'}},
                'versioncreated': {'date_histogram': {'field': 'versioncreated', 'interval': 'hour'}}

You will find more info about facets in elasticsearch docs.
